Spp. Taraxacum officinale
Cooling and drying. Diuretic, mild laxative, stomachic.
The dandelion leaf has been used more for its diuretic and blood cleansing properties because it is said to have a higher amount of potassium to replenish the blood. It has also been used for weight loss by purportedly flushing out excess water in the system. Add it to your salads, or use it as a pot herb (nutritive).
Found in our Calcium Tonic, Flush My Bladder, Daily Detox, Green Nutrition, and Weight Management #2 Blends.
