Herb of the Month: Cleavers

Herb of the Month: Cleavers

Posted by TriLight Health on Sep 2nd 2022

Today we're talking about cleavers. No, not the knife found in your kitchen! Cleavers is also the name of a climbing plant. Odds are high you have seen this plant growing near you. It may even be in your yard and you've written it off as a weed. Hopefully after today, you'll have a new appreciation for cleavers. Herbalists mostly use this plant in tinctures. The entire plant is edible with proper harvesting and preparation. It can be cooked up like spinach and is often added to soups and stews. Cleavers seeds are used as a coffee substitute as it roasts up quite nicely and has a similar taste. The root has been used as a red dye throughout history.
