🤗 YOUR WEEKLY HERB NEWS

We wish everyone a gently restorative weekend. Join us as we look at the week gone by:

🌿 HERB OF THE WEEK: Dandelion leaf and root have been used around the world for many skin conditions and joint problems, as well as poor liver detoxification.

⚕️ DETOX MYTHS: There is a great deal of media and advertising on various ‘detox’ and cleansing regimes, but very little of this really examines what detoxification actually means. 

👩‍🌾 SPOTLIGHT: Not all raw materials in the herbal supply chain are being used for the final product. This means there is an immense amount of waste at all stages.

🌱 BEST PICKING TIMES FOR DANDELION

Dandelion leaves are best picked in the spring or early summer preferably before flowering. However, dandelion roots should be picked in early spring rather than autumn because of the improved bitterness at that time - the plant then uses up the slightly sweet and starchy inulin during the winter months.
