Product Details

Clitoria ternatea is a perennial herbaceous plant native to Southeast Asia and some parts of the United States. It is a member of the Fabaceae family and closely resembles sweet peas and varietals grown for agricultural purposes. What sets this species apart is the high concentration of anthocyanins in its petals, these are water pigments found in plants. When this dried flower is introduced to base liquids it turns them a shocking blue hue, if you combine with the acidity of lemon, it becomes a royal purple.

The possibilities are endless with this unique flower, you can use it as a natural food and drink dye, add it to cosmetics and soaps, or just enjoy it as a mild herbal tea. One suggestion is to make iced tea with the flowers and serve with lemon juice ice cubes, the slow dispersal of the acidic citrus makes for an impressive beverage. Along with its unique coloring effects, butterfly pea flower has also been touted for helping to support healthy skin and general wellness when used topically or consumed as a tea or tincture.
