Teasel!

It grows along side of the road.  You’ve likely seen it!  Many of the medicinal plants used today (by Americans) thrive in waste areas, which, along side of the road is most definitely in that category.  But on to the uses!

The root of this plant is used.  Look at it…would you want to use it’s…umm…leaves?

Teasel is useful as a diuretic, stimulates sweat, and helps in digestion, helps to heal the liver, enhances appetite and cures diarrhea. It also helps to rid the body of toxins, which is mainly why I am interested in it.   It appears to help the body deal with a disease, such as Lyme Disease, better.

However, Lyme Disease or not, Teasel seems to be a plant that you should remember!

    May I please use your picture of dried teasel on my website? I sell locally grown flowers to local florists and am getting ethically wildcrafted teasel next week, and need a picture to let people know what I will have. Your picture of the dried teasel is very striking.
    Thanks

    Hey all– do you know what range the teasel grows wild in? I’m a chronic lyme patient and very curious if I could wild craft this where I am (NE Missouri). Also, in looking at your blog, I’m wondering if you have any information about ecovillages and other sustainability-oriented intentional communities on here anywhere? Thanks!
