Herb of the Month: Dandelion

Herb of the Month: Dandelion

Posted by TriLight Health on Apr 8th 2022

Love them or hate them, dandelion season is upon us. This humble yellow flower is a prize to herbalists-home gardeners remain unconvinced. They are an important first food for pollinators, especially bees. The entire plant can be used by both cooks and herbalists. Home cooks add the leaves and flowers to salads, saute the stems as a pasta substitute, and roast the roots as a delicious coffee alternative! Most herbal preparations are made using the roots but the flowers are also used. Dandelion is a very nutrient rich herb that is especially high in Vitamin A. This is an important herb to make sure to use organic as they are often heavily sprayed.
