These tassels, called the Corn silk of the plant, can be steeped as a tea, or prepared as an alcohol extract for easier use. The corn silk tastes of corn, has a demulcent quality as well as a mild astringency. It is cooling in nature, nourishing, softening and restoring. Corn silk supports the urinary tract, offering its qualities to clear heat, tend irritated tissue and restore overall ease.
