The many uses of Dandelions in Natural Healing

Dandelions are everywhere in the Summertime!  I know my yard gets filled with them and until recently I thought they were a nuisance and would make sure I mowed each one of them.  Then I discovered that Dandelions are actually a WONDERFUL HEALING herb and can actually be used in many many different ways.  The best part about this plant is that it grows practically everywhere so you should always be able to find some to make your own natural healing remedies.

The many uses of Dandelions for Natural Healing

I guess we will start with what parts of the Dandelion that can be used… ALL Parts 🙂  You can use the leaves, roots, flowers, and even the sap!

Using Dandelions as Food:

  • I didn’t know that you could eat Dandelions until recently!  But truthfully they are full of minerals including potassium, and vitamins A, B, C, and D.
  • You can eat the leaves and stem in fresh salads.
  • You can also boil the leaves and make a tea out of them.
  • Create a coffee substitute using ground Dandelion root.  This will be caffeine free too!

Benefits of Dandelions:

  • Dandelions work as a detoxifier and will help clear the blood and lymph system increasing elimination through the Kidneys and Bowels.
  • They are extremely helpful in people with liver related illnesses.  They cause the gallbladder to release bile which stimulates the Liver to produce more.
  • If you take the sap from a Dandelion root it can be used to help remove corns, warts, blisters, and treat bee stings.
  • Has a diuretic effect so it can be helpful in treating swollen ankles and fluid retention.
