A new year often brings about resolutions for healthy living, diet changes, and detoxing. One herb that herbalists frequently find themselves using with clients in the new year is Dandelion.  Yep, the little weeds that grow in your yard (although, we don’t suggest harvesting dandelions from your yard unless they’re not exposed to any chemicals or animal urine). This persistent plant packs amazing benefits!

At Birds and Bees Teas we use Dandelion: in our Grounded tea.

Dandelion is an extremely nourishing herb for overall health, boosting healthy appetite and detoxification. We can also discuss making a custom blend for you and incorporate dandelion if you’re interested. Herbalists traditionally use Dandelion for: Detoxification, Eczema, Liver Support, Blood Purification, Diuretic, Constipation, Anemia, and Weight Management.

Eating dandelion is gaining popularity as well, many stores carry organically grown dandelion.  These plants are packed with many vitamins and minerals including vitamin A and C and are a fantastic addition to salads.  Dandelion wine is also a traditional beverage regaining popularity!

We hope that learning more about dandelion will help you gain new appreciation for these plants.
