Ok…. So maybe you aren’t crazy like me and have a dandelion garden bed, but at least maybe this will help you see the benefits of this incredible plant. When taken care of, and not sprayed with herbicides, dandelions are an incredible addition to your medicinal garden.
Growing dandelions is kind of easy. They grow anywhere. Everywhere. And then they grow some more. I hope this next bit of information helps you see them as medicine and not as a nuisance.
You can grow dandelions in raised beds to make sure they stay away from the pesticides that you spray on your lawn. Intentional dandelions will give you a much more powerful punch of medicine than foraging where they’ve been sprayed in the past.
Dandelion contains compounds which increase the livers production of bile, the body’s own natural laxative! With regular use people make more regular visits to the toilet which is a nature’s way of detoxing.
Dandelion contains sugars which act as diuretics, that is they increase the kidneys production of urine. Increased urination means reduced fluid in the tissues. For most woman water retention is cyclical. Dandelion can be used to reduce cycle based bloating.
Energize the Weary
If you feel run down, tired, and lethargic all the time and for no good reason, dandelion may be the tonic for you. It stimulates the liver which results in increased energy levels. Herbalists find it gives an energy boost to those that find their get up and go has gone for no apparent reason.
Grab some Dandelion seeds here and designate a spot just for them so they can be their free and sunshiney little selves in a happy spot!
