dandelion liver tonic
talk about spring cleaning!
dandelion is the premier herb for liver detoxification! being a tonic herb, it is so safe to use, you could take it every day for the rest of your life and it would continue to be supportive. dandelion is a wonderful herb to add to your daily routine in early spring to detoxify your liver after a long winter of less movement, warmer and heavier foods, and winter's energy. there are some simple ways to detox and dandelion is a very gentle but powerful herb.
it is no wonder it pops up in sidewalk cracks and fields are littered with them! they are such resilient plants and they want to share that with us. fresh spring bitter leaves are delicious mixed in to a salad or sauteed with a little oil. the flowers can also be eaten. following tradition, we dig up the roots in the fall when all the energy has gone back into the ground and we use them in our tincture. dandelion's long taproot reaches deep into the ground to access trace minerals and nutrients.
