Corn Silk    Zea Mays

Corn silk is a mild stimulant, diuretic and demulcent, useful in acute and chronic cystitis and in the bladder irritation of uric acid and phosphatic gravel it relieves a wide range of conditions characterized by urinary inflammation.

It is especially useful in treating inflammation caused by bacterial infection. The volatile oils neutralize fungi and yeast. Corn silk is both diuretic and kaliuretic, that is, it encourages retention of sodium and excretion of potassium. Not everyone benefits from excretion of potassium, but people with chronic fatigue, adrenal burnout, and generally "cold" symptoms may.

Do not use corn silk if you also take Lasix (furosemide).

Usually taken as a tea, but can be used as an encapsulated powder or mixed with corn oil for application to the skin

Ritually it is used for protection luck and divination
