But this heavenly flower provides a one stop solution to all skin issues, the presence of proanthocyanidin and polyphenols aids in restoring natural production process of collagen.

How to use Butterfly Pea Flower?

Believe you me; the flower is readily available across almost all online shopping portals.  All you have to do is search-buy and follow the instructions on the pack. The tea is available as dried powder or florets, simply use 2-3gm of powder, alternately 5-6 flowers placed in a mug/ tea pot, pour boiled water let it seep for about 3-5mins, if you like add some honey or squeeze in a hint of lemon.  Voila! Your green...errrrr…..blue tea is ready to be savored.


Craving iced tea! Simply cool this elixir, top with some mint and ice cubes, and my version of Blue iced tea is ready to beat the summer heat. 

Butterfly pea flower hair rinse for healthy hair:

Use the same brew as a hair rinse of course minus the honey. In case you are up for some hard work;  place 15-20 dried flowers in a jar, top it with warm to hot water, one can also add some rosemary leaves and let it sit for an hour. Strain the blue liquid in a spray bottle and refrigerate the rest to store for later use. The same can be used as hair rinse or spray, as per your convenience. 

For skin, one can make a paste of freshly picked butterfly pea flowers with store bought or garden fresh aloe Vera gel. Store it in a container and use on cleansed face, neck and arms any time of the day. 

Whether you are a believer of traditional apothecary or contemporary research, it’s time we reap benefits from them and make most of our health and wellbeing. So have you tried a brew of Blue Matcha / Butter fly pea flower yet!!

Until next time….soak blue!
