Benefits of Edible Flowers

I have always admired the beauty of flowers. 🌺🏡🌹🌼 We have such a great variety, they bring a splash of color, making people smile 😊. They add an exotic taste to many dishes πŸ₯§ around the world.

Did you know that flowers are very high in antioxidants? This is especially true for those with deep color. Flowers contain a good dose of vitamins and minerals as well as phytochemicals. All of these properties benefit our gut health and improves our skin too. πŸ™Œ

Sprinkle them in salads πŸ₯—, sandwiches πŸ₯ͺ, teas 🍡, soups 🍜, butter πŸ”ͺ, cakes 🍰, cookies πŸͺ and you can even make pretty ice cubes. ❄

Down bellow you can check which flowers are safe to eat. Do not consume anything without being 100%. It is important to verify if the flower has been grown organically and has not been exposed to chemicals.
