Description

Carnation

Carnation or Dianthus caryophyllus is a herbaceous plant very common in Mediterranean zones. This is a very pleasing flower because of its colours. Besides, carnation leaves a very aromatic and intense scent. It normally blooms in spring and autumn, but with appropriate conditions, it can bloom during the whole year. Carnation has plenty of variations, among them, it is remarkable the small carnation.

Pairing

As we said before, the carnation has an intense and floral scent. This edible flower has a medium size and we can use the whole flower or just its petals. Generally, in the kitchen, we use its petals, because its taste is neutral and they provide brightness to the dish. This is one of the main reasons why we use carnation to elaborate our petals mix.

Medicinal properties

Carnation is not well known for its medicinal properties, however, it has several uses related to natural medicine. We can use the carnation to regulate blood pressure. How? Just prepare an infusion of this flower. We can also use this edible flower to alleviate digestive disorders. We also want to highlight that carnation could be used for molar ache, heart disorders and to calm the cough.
