Dandelion Leaf, Cut (Taraxacum Officinale)


Known by most homeowners and landscapers as a weed that is nearly impossible to eradicate, Dandelion Leaf, or Taraxacum Officinale, is actually a valuable herb, with numerous culinary and medicinal uses. Native Americans long used it to treat kidney diseases, swelling, skin problems, heartburn, and upset stomachs, while the Chinese would use it as a treatment for digestive disorders, appendicitis, and even breast problems which include inflammation or lack of milk. In Europe, herbalists used to incorporate it into remedies that treated fever, boils, diarrhea and eye problems, as well as diabetes. The leaf is also believed to be of great use in summoning spirits, as well as in purification rituals. Today, Dandelion leaf is more commonly used as a diuretic, to remove excess water and toxins from the body. It is also said to promote bile excretions from the liver so the body can process foods and liquids more efficiently while purging toxins. More common still, it is used simply as an appetite stimulant and digestive aid, even included in salads and similar such dishes, or as a garnish.
