Dandelions are great plants and great healers. With their long tap roots, they pull up minerals from deep in the soil and make them available in their roots, leaves and flowers.
This video highlights some of the health benefits to using and consuming the dandelion – if you are blessed to have some in your garden, don’t pull them up and discard them and certainly don’t use herbicides. Encourage them and use them to heal yourself.
