Cleansing with Cleavers: A Fresh Springtime Tonic

March 20, 2014
This morning I went out locally to collect the first batch of fresh, wild Cleavers and Chickweed of 2014.
These are plentiful and will become more so as Spring progresses into Summer.
To make a Springtime Tonic; simmer the sticky-hairy leaves & Cleavers stems in water for 5 mins to make a tea for cleansing out internally.
Supports and assists the Lymphatic system by (ridding of mucus etc) as it is shaped like a chimney-sweep brush! (Doctrine of Signatures).
Chickweed is a lighter textured leaf and more suited to eating directly eg in fresh salads. Chop or tear into small pieces and add into your favourite salad vegetables. Their small white flowers are budding and both plants can be gathered to grow back again shortly, so collect wisely and leave plenty (2\3) to continue to grow.
