There are many medicinal properties in common plants that surround us. While awareness is needed(don’t use any plant that has been sprayed with pesticide or are near plants which have been sprayed with pesticide), one can harvest many plants with numerous benefits. Plants which are regarded as weeds like dandelion and goldenrod, can help with infections and inflammation in the skin and digestive tract, while red clover helps clean the blood. These plants can be enjoyed in salads and as tea, though one should keep careful track of every medicinal item they consume, to make sure the body is not overbalanced.
- Assuming you put no toxic ingredients on your lawn, you can dig up some of those much maligned dandelions and make a great cup of alternate joe.
- You can use your dandelion’s leaves for a salad additive. To make your morning beverage, you will need to chop up the root matter and boil it in a pot.
- You can tweak the flavor component of your nutritious coffee alternative by adding in some hibiscus tea, or some rose hips.
“If you spray your lawn with pesticides, sorry, this isn’t for you, even if a dandelion survives the spray.”
