Ordinary Wisdom


Corn Silk is a natural source of vitamin K and potassium and is often used as a home remedy to help with symptoms of urinary tract infections, kidney stones and gout. Corn silk strands can be used to make tea or tincture. Simply pull the golden-green strands off of the ears, when shucking your corn, and spread them out on a plate or paper towel to dry. Corn silk is best used fresh, or as a second best option – freshly dried.
To make a tea:
  • Use about 1 tablespoon of chopped corn silk per cup of almost boiling water.
  • Cover and let this steep for fifteen to twenty minutes or until cool enough to drink.
  • Strain.
  • Sweeten with raw honey to taste, if you wish.
  • You can store leftovers in the refrigerator for two to three days.
  • General recommendation for adults is up to 1 cup of tea, two to three times during the day – avoiding the hours right before bedtime.
To make a tincture:
  • Fill a small jar about 1/4 to 1/3 full of fresh, chopped corn silk.
  • Fill the rest of the jar with a high proof drinkable alcohol – I use 100 proof vodka.
  • Cap and let this infuse in a cool, dark place for four to six weeks, shaking occasionally.
  • Strain.
  • Adult dose around 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon, several times a day. (Mix with a spoonful of raw honey for higher patient compliance & tastiness!) Shelf life of corn silk tincture is well over a year.
