Weed Walk Invasive Garden

When we did our weed walk we started in the invasive garden. This garden has a mind of it's own. I've long given up trying to tame t...

Dandelions are our friends

So many people really don't like these sunny flowers showing up on their lawns. They take chemicals to try and stop them from propagating. This time of year I go out every afternoon and pick all I can find. These lovely little flowers have many healing uses.

I infuse virgin olive oil with these dandy little flowers to make an oil rich in nutrients for the skin. The salves, lotions and face creams lend a healthy glow!  Dandelion oil works on joint pain, muscle aches and is a great skin toner

The Tinctures help upset stomaches, gas, gallstones, increase urine production and can be used as a gentle laxative.

And that's just the flowers!

The leaves in early spring while they are still young are a great addition to salads, and the roots are wonderful for a liver cleanse.

Here is what it says on Web MD.com

Dandelion is an herb. People use the above ground parts and root to make medicine.

Dandelion is used for many conditions, but so far, there isn’t enough scientific evidence to determine whether or not it is effective for any of them.

Dandelion is used for loss of appetite, upset stomach, intestinal gas, gallstones, joint pain, muscle aches, eczema, and bruises. Dandelion is also used to increase urine production and as a laxative to increase bowel movements. It is also used as skin toner, blood tonic, and digestive tonic.

Some people use dandelion to treat infection, especially viral infections, and cancer.

In foods, dandelion is used as salad greens, and in soups, wine, and teas. The roasted root is used as a coffee substitute.

How does it work?

Dandelion contains chemicals that may increase urine production and decrease swelling (inflammation).

If you have interest in purchasing oil or tincture, please send me an email.
The tincture is $10 per oz
The oil is $20 for 8 oz
