Garden Weed Tincture

Garden Weed Tincture

Here’s a great way to turn a morning’s weeding into something really useful – a whole body tonic to improve your health generally!

Cleavers stimulates the elimination of metabolic waste via the lymphatic system and kidneys/bladder. Dandelion is a tonic food & detoxifier to the liver & gallbladder. Nettle is a super-food packed with vitamins & minerals and helps eliminate waste via the kidneys/bladder (diuretic). Curled dock stimulates the bile – bowel axis aiding elimination. Burdock is a blood purifier (alterative/depurative).
