Medicinal uses of flowers.

Following on from my last post on edible flowers (thank you for the correction), here is some information  on the specific medicinal uses of various flowers.

Some of these are consumed in the form of flower tea or in essence form, whilst others are applied externally.

More information on flower and plants as skin treatment (including some recipes) can be found here or for more detail on the medicinal uses of wild flowers - here.
