The cleavers plant reminds me of getting tangled in shipping tape! The leaves and stems are very clingy and cling to everything. It is a chore to harvest!
Cleavers - Botanical name: Galium aparine
Cleavers may be great for helping support the lymphatic system rid the body of toxins. This in turn helps those who suffer from psoriasis and arthritis, which benefit from purifying the blood.
It may also aid in treating bladder and kidney problems.
Cleavers may also be used to support lowering blood pressure without slowing the heart rate.
DOSAGE: about 5 drops under the tongue three times a day.
These cleavers were foraged by me in central MN.
I use the folk method for making all my tinctures, which uses no measurements except sizing things up with your eyes. So I put the plant material in a jar and then fill with alcohol.
