...have not too much in common. Although they meet quite regulary recently when I'm out and about in our yard to collect Dandelion Leaves.
It's too sad that the properties of this common plant are rarely appreciated these days. Well, here's to the Dandelion ;)
Nearly every part of the Dandelion is edible. Since the first fresh leaves peeked out I collected them to add to our salads and what we don't consume I dry to use in my Herbal Tea Blends.
Usually I take the time a few times a year to dig up the roots of the Dandelion too. I wash and dry them. Herbalists have long prescribed dandelion root tea to relieve acne and eczema as well as to enhance liver function. It's on of the best herbal diuretics.
Since everyone probably knows how a Dandelion looks like, I thought I just introduce my very soon to be replaced rainboots ;)
Thanks for reading - comments are always welcome!!! :)
