Zea mays, the botanical name for corn comes from Greek, meaning to live. Mays comes from Spanish, the same word as a term in a native Mexican language meaning "mother," or "mother of life", reflecting the central importance of corn in the lives of early Americans. Corn silk, the white and brown tipped tassels that surround an ear of corn end up in the trash in most kitchens, are the most interesting part of the plant to the herbalist. Corn silk tea has a long history of use in traditional folk medicine as a diuretic used to treat chronic inflammation in the urinary tract or kidneys.  Cornmeal is also used in home herbalism as a binder for poultices.
