What are edible flowers?
First, not all flowers are edible, and never consume any that have been dyed or treated with pesticides or any other nasty chemicals. Additionally, different flowers may have different edible parts, i.e., leaves of some varieties may only be edible while blossoms from others may be the edible part. It is important to consult an expert when foraging or picking from a garden when you’re unsure of the varieties planted. And always clean organically grown blossoms thoroughly before use. We select edible varieties and incorporate them into products that will allow their natural beauty and natural flavors shine.
Why edible flowers?
We love to incorporate edible flowers into our products because they are both beautiful and so good for the environment. Edible flowers remove pollutants from the air we breathe, are wonderful for the biodiversity of the soil, and all are pollinator friendly.
Where do your edible flowers come from?
We support local growers wherever possible. Growing edible flowers as a crop is a mission we want to spread to more and more local farmers. We started with farming partners in and around the state of Colorado, but we have also had to expand our sights to source some of the varieties we desire.
How do I use your products?
Drop, muddle, garnish, sprinkle, season, but most importantly – experiment! Get creative and have fun. Our products are designed to take the heavy lifting out of home dining and entertaining so that you can just sit back and shine. Inspiration for ideas can be found on product packages or check out our blog for more recipes!
Why can’t I just buy one item?
We take great care and pride in making our products. Everything is handmade in small batches, and they work best when paired together to create a truly unique experience. Given the rise in shipping and fulfillment costs, it is also not cost effective for us to ship out single items at this time. We’ve curated all our sets to provide you with the best experience possible and we have sets available in a range of price points. If you need more, or are not finding what you need already available, we can accept custom orders for orders at or above $200 per custom order. To place a request for a custom order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. You will be invoiced separately for your order plus shipping and handling. Fulfillment of your order will take place after payment has been received in full.

Proceeds from every tube sold goes towards global reforestation.
Who shouldn’t consume edible flowers?
First and foremost, we would not recommend consuming edible flowers if you are pregnant without first consulting with your doctor. Additionally, please do not consume our products if you are or feel like you may have an allergy to any of our ingredients, including edible flowers. Please consult with your doctor if you have any questions regarding your personal sensitivities or possible interactions with your health.
Do edible flowers have any health benefits?
Here is some food for thought. Although Flouwer Co. does not make any health claims associated with consuming our products, extensive research has illuminated numerous health advantages associated with consuming edible flowers. Edible flowers have remarkable concentrations of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory attributes, and a wealth of vitamins that contribute significantly to promoting overall health and well-being.
What certifications do Flouwer Co. products have?
We do not currently hold any certifications. As a company, we always adhere to using a clean, limited list of recognizable ingredients. Whenever possible, those ingredients will be plant-based. All of our edible flowers have been organically grown and we are always striving towards bettering our sustainability.
What should I do if I find that the color has faded some?
We’re glad you asked because this is so important! We never use any artificial colors or stabilizers, so while your item is still fine to consume and the flavor will last forever, some of the unique colors from the flowers used may fade over time. Fading is accelerated by exposure to sunlight, so we recommend that you store our products in a cool, dark place. Also, different plant and floral varieties produce different colors so colors will vary and that is natural.
What is floating in my drink?
Because we are using edible flowers and other ingredients from nature, you should expect to find edible flower petals in your drink or dish whenever you incorporate our products. Plant matter is most commonly found in the form of colorful petals, but plant matter can also be brown, green, gray, and black – this is natural. We cannot and wouldn’t overly process anything to strip it of its natural properties.
What is the shelf life of your products?
It varies depending on the product, but all our products have a very long shelf life because we only use a clean, limited-ingredient list of items that are not quick to spoil.
