Do you know that flower petals are not only beautiful to look at, they can also be consumed?

Although not all flowers are readily edible, there are plenty that can be eaten alone or combined into a recipe to create delightful treats. Flower petals add a gorgeously vibrant touch to foods, and are becoming increasingly popular in drinks and desserts at modern cafés. They are extremely instagrammable and can give some unique fragrance to food. Petals also come with a range of health benefits.

What’s the benefit of eating flower petals?

Different edible flowers give different health benefits when consumed, and most are rich in vitamin C. If you’re looking to try some out for the first time and wondering where to buy edible flowers, here are some types of edible flowers you can easily find in supermarkets, tea shops, health shops or herbal stores all around Singapore. If you can’t find any in your area, there are many great online stores to choose from.

Chamomile – You can easily find chamomile tea in supermarkets. This flower tea is great for your digestive system, can ease your stress and allow you to sleep well.

Hibiscus – Hibiscus petals contains antioxidants. This helps increase good cholesterol in your body and simultaneously lower the bad cholesterol levels. Ingesting them regularly can benefit your skin and hair too.

Lavender – This fragrant purple flower is not only a great source of vitamin A, it is also good for your digestive system and can help you relax.

Marigold – These flowers have high flavonoid content which helps with cell health and boosts the immune system, potentially reducing the risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma and stroke.

Roses – Rose petals are commonly found on the menu in many cafes these days. They are distinctively fragrant, low in calories and are a great source of both vitamins A and E.

Violets – This flower may be small, but it has strong health benefits for anyone who consumes it. It has anti-inflammatory properties and boost blood cells. It is also rich in potassium which is good for the heart and muscle.

Drinking flower tea is not the only way to enjoy the taste and benefits of these edible flowers; there are many edible flower recipes out there to try out. Here, Gift Flowers Singapore would love to share some easy homemade edible flowers recipes with you.

Step-by-step easy to make flower treats

With the right ingredients and a selection of your favourite petals, you can easily come up with an edible flower menu. 

  • Edible flower salad: Dress up your salad with some fresh edible flowers to add a burst of colour! Pick some baby spring greens, slice up one small onion, add a light vinaigrette dressing and mix well before sprinkling your flowers on top for the best effect.
  • Edible rose recipes: Roses are beautiful and carry the symbol of romance and love all around the world. You can make candied rose petals for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day by brushing both sides of rose petals with beaten egg white and dipping them into sugar. After they are dry, they become candied and can be placed alongside any meal to add a beautiful touch. You could also add edible rose petals to a nice drink of martini in celebration.
  • Edible flower cookies: Bake your favourite cookies as usual. When they’re still hot from the oven, press your petals lightly on top of the cookies to make sure they stick well. You can also sprinkle some granulated sugar on top to give the cookie a sparkling, frosty effect.
