It was our usual scooter route home when my daughter spotted a perfect dandelion specimen. She couldn’t resist, neither could I.
We’ve all wished upon a dandelion. But there’s so much more they can do.
It’s suggested that dandelion can cure a loss of appetite, an upset stomach, intestinal gas, gallstones, joint pain, muscle aches, eczema, bruises, to increase urine production, as a laxative to increase bowel movements, a skin toner, blood tonic, and digestive tonic. Not to mention that some use dandelion to treat infection, especially viral infections, and even cancer.
But there’s no science that factually backs any of this up.
It can also be cooked into soups, salads, wine and tea, and roasted into a substitute for coffee.
But considering all of the above, it’s still far more fun blowing the seeds away in the wind.
