Curio Elixir Blue Pea Powder can be used to make floral waters, perfumes, skin lotions, soaps and other body care products. The color from bluepea powder is mesmerising. Once water is added to the tea, the deep blue liquid changes color based on the pH level of whatever is added next. Squeeze in some lemon or add in a bit of citrus juice, and the blue changes to purple. Its mood ring-like qualities have made blue pea flower tea a hit with anyone who enjoys a little whimsy in their life.
Used for centuries in Southeast Asia as a caffeine-free herbal beverage (as well as a plant-based food and clothing dye), this dried tea is as common as chamomile tea, and is often used in the same way as an after-dinner drink. It’s served hot or cold, and is usually mixed with honey, ginger, mint or passion fruit.
Like green tea, blue pea flower tea is full of potent antioxidants, and has even been studied for its ability to help protect the skin against premature aging (it fights against glycation, which is protein damage caused by an influx of sugar molecules). There have been additional studies showing the tea’s ability to help fight against internal inflammation. Traditionally, the blue pea plant and tea made from it have been used to treat general pain, reduce inflammation, help with common eye issues like conjunctivitis, fight against certain types of cancers, induce brain health, and “increase vitality.”
Mixed into a small amount of plain greek yogurt or a paste with a small amount of pink clay and water, can be used as natural facial mask.
