Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) leaves, when grown in the wild and not contaminated by common yard chemicals, are lovely, tender, bitter herbs. They are a mild and gentle diuretic, packed with chlorophyll, vitamins A, C, D and B-complex. Bitters are very commonly known to be good for digestion. Dandelion roots are a staple for herbal liver cleansers, and generally considered safe for pregnant women. Be clear about this, that dandelions do for the earth much what they do for our bodies – they help detoxify, so it’s important to eat them only when harvested from places that are free from common toxins like lawn fertilizers or pesticides – in other words, in an organic environment.*
