Dandelions are much more than a common weed; they are a valuable medicine. Who knew the best way to rid your property of dandelions was to use them! Well, as it turns out, plenty of people. Read this list once and you will look at dandelions differently forever.
Ailments dandelions have been used to remedy:
Insomnia (so long as tea made from roots or leaves is consumed at least six hours before bed; otherwise its diuretic properties will keep you up having to pee all night!)
Low Blood Pressure
Every part of the dandelion is edible, including its roots, leaves and blossoms. Young leaves are excellent in a tossed salad or cooked as greens. Dried leaves can be used for tea and roasted roots make a wonderful, healthful coffee substitute. Just be sure to harvest dandelions from a chemical free patch of land or you can purchase dandelion products (and get valuable advice) from your local health food store.
