This beautiful pea-like flower is an extraordinary shade of blue, and they are used as a natural dye for foods and as a lovely blue tea. This colour is due to the flowers’ content of anthocyanins, the same pigments that give berries their healthful properties.
Our Spagyric of Butterfly Pea is also blue, and has a good balanced effect on mood and thought. It is calming but clarifying, and good for depression and anxiety. Modern studies back up its Ayurvedic use for boosting memory and learning, and these properties build over time if it is taken as a daily tonic.
