Dandelion - The Wonder Plant!
Dandelion - A Superfood for Your Little Ones!
Dandelion is a wonderful, happy, cheery little plant, and with some pretty awesome properties too.
The first amazing thing about Dandelion is that it is one of the first plants to flower in early Spring.
This early flowering has two benefits - first, a glorious splash of colour signifying the end of winter and the start of the life-bringing new season, and second it's pretty much the only source of vital food for early bees and other insects!
Another amazing fact about Dandelion is that it's a plant with zero waste! Every part is edible by many animals, including us humans as well as rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals!
And not only is every part edible by rabbits and others, it's packed full of vitamins and minerals too.
It's a natural superfood for your little ones!
Dandelion Flower is reputed to have antioxidant properties amongst many othr benefits.
Dandelion Leaves help reduce inflammation, act as an appetite stimulant, a diuretic and support digestion.
Dandelion Root has blood and organ detoxifying properties.
And even the seed head is great, and has been enjoyed by many (adults and children alike!) - Dandelion Wishes, anyone?!
We think that's not too shoddy for a weed!
