Sunflower petals are used as an ingredient in soaps, candles, potpourri, and dyes. They are bitter in flavor and smell slightly like honey. The petals are useful in tea or tincture for inflammation or soreness in the throat, windpipe and tonsils. Sunflower makes a lovely addition to an herbal bath as well.
