Dandelion (taraxacum officinale)
Parts used: Leaves and root
Honey, it’s just not a weed anymore. This is actually one of the best herbs, in my opinion. My granddaughter loves to go through the fields picking them. Some people take dandelion eaves and put them on their salads or use them for decorating certain dishes. Little do they know that there are actually benefits to using dandelion. It is a diuretic, and it is also beneficial to the liver and liver function. If the greens are used in the diet, it will improve the enamel of teeth.
Dandelion stimulates blood flow and aids the liver in removing toxins from the body. It can even be used as a survival food. It promotes healthy circulation, strengthens weak arteries, cleans skin blemishes and can even be used to help control vomiting.
The white juice from the broken stem can be applied to warts, use for several days it will dry up the warts. This can also remove corns, acne and blisters.
