DESCRIPTION

Butterfly Pea, Clitoria ternatea

Producing a serenely azure colored tea, Butterfly Pea Flower is a vibrant vine that vigorously grows in the tropics. As the brilliant blue color of the flower and dye indicate to us, this plant is extremely high in antioxidants. Supporting eye and skin health, these antioxidants protect against premature aging and cellular damage due to excess exposure to sun and toxins.

Known in the Ayurvedic healing tradition to enhance memory and boost brain power, this herb is also renowned throughout Asia for promoting “dark, lustrous, thick hair” via its high bioflavonoid content. As it has been used throughout history for a myriad of benefits, Butterfly Pea is an exquisite example of nature’s beauty and healing potential.
