Spring is just around the corner. Though if you live in my neck of the woods you would think otherwise.
Spring is a good time for cleansing and detoxing from the long winter months.
Granny knew her stuff when she fed her family fresh spring greens. They are packed with nutrients, that many of us don't get over the winter months.
Nettle, is a wonderful cleansing and detoxifying herb. Nettle (urtica diotica) makes a wonderful healing tea.Nettle can be picked and dried for later use.
Dandelion too, is also a wonderful spring herb. Just be sure to pick the leaves when they are young for their best flavor. They are tender while young, and tend to be a bit rubbery if you let them go too long. Dandelion acts as a diuretic, and can help you take off some of that winter weight. Just be careful not to overuse. Dandelion can cause potassium loss. Potassium is valuable to good health.
