    • Hello luis,
      Thank You for visiting, I do sell it ,it is 85.an oz. Corn Silk is the grass or tassel on top of the era of corn than they make a powder out of it. You can make a tea out of it about 2 tsp.in a cup of hot water let it set for 10-15 minutes. Which I do. But do not over use it can lead to drug resistant bacteria.
