Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is a wild food and traditional herb that has been used as a detoxifying tonic since ancient times. Historically it has been used in Chinese, Arabic, and European herbal traditions as a bitter digestive stimulant and anti-inflammatory remedy.
Dandelion has affinity for the liver and gallbladder, kidneys, stomach, and breasts, so its effects are strongest in those areas. It is a blood and lymph cleanser and thus improves skin conditions. It has demonstrable anti-cancer effects, stabilizes blood sugar, and contains a wide array of vitamins and minerals.
This tincture was made from herb that was wild-harvested with care from our clinic garden, then tinctured fresh at the height of harvest season. Supplies are limited.
Taraxacum officinale (root, leaf and flower), certified organic cane alcohol, and organic apple cider vinegar.
