The Medicinal Properties of Dandelions and Nettles

Here in the Pacific Northwest we have a plethora of Dandelions in the spring that just love to take over the yard and fields.  Many who see them go on the attack with everything they have to rid them, a giant grass versus dandelion battle.  Most people think of them as just another pesky weed but they do have some wonderful properties to explore.

In addition to the Dandelion, we also find an abundance of Nettles.  Again, this plant is often overlooked for its benefits.  Combining Nettles and Dandelions in a tea is a wonderful tonic.  Once of my goals this spring is to take advantage of both plants and embrace the “weeds.”
