Dandelion is organically cultivated in the United States and has a long history of being used in traditional herbal practices.
It is a perennial herb that has a sunny flower head, many tiny flowers and deeply cut leaves that form a basal rosette, and a thick taproot.
Dandelion root can be decocted as a tea, added to herbal blends, made into extracts or incorporated in body care recipes.
It can be used for gastrointestinal aid, a cleansing alternative for the liver and gallbladder. The root of the dandelion is rich in the carbohydrate inulin, which is a type of soluble fiber found in plants that supports the growth and maintenance of a healthy bacterial flora in your intestinal tract*.
