How It Works: 

Native to the Mediterranean region, Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) is indigenous to both western and central Europe and is now found in the United States. An annual or biennial herb growing up to 10 feet tall, Milk Thistle has a large bright purple flowering head. It is often considered a pesky weed. It gains its name from the milk white veins that streak its prickly edged leaves. The plant contains the natural chemical substance Silymarin, an active constituent highly concentrated in the fruit, but also found in the seeds and leaves. Milk Thistle has been used as both a food and a health aid for hundreds of years. It makes a delicious salad green and cooked vegetable, as well as a wholesome tea.

How It Works: 

A perennial with male and female plants, Nettle (Urtica dioica) grows up to four feet tall and has toothed, pointed leaves that sting when touched. The sting causes a burning sensation. This is because each hair consists of a sharp, hollow spine that breaks off easily, allowing the liquid inside, formic acid, to be released into the object causing the injury. In spite of its stinging, Nettles are of considerable use in many ways, including culinary; they contain Vitamins A and C, iron and a variety of other minerals. The young shoots can also be boiled as a vegetable. Nettle fibers can be spun into rope and made into cloth. Cosmetically, Nettle is a good cleanser, especially for oily skin. As a tea, Nettle may be taken hot or cold and many prefer it sweetened and flavored with lemon.

Suggested Use:

How It Works: 

Parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is best known as a plate garnish whose use is not only decorative, but also works as an after-dinner breath "mint" to reduce mouth odor. This is due to Chlorophyll, abundant in fresh parsley, which does indeed absorb odors. Parsley is one of the oldest and longest-used herbs known to man. It was described in a Greek herbal written in the third century B.C. and is probably a native of the eastern Mediterranean area, though its exact origin is not known. In ancient Greece, Parsley was placed in wreaths given to winning athletes because the Greeks believed that the god Hercules had chosen Parsley for his garlands. Today, in addition to a garnish, Parsley is used extensively in food preparation to enhance the flavor of meats, fish, fowl, eggs and vegetables.

Suggested Use:

How It Works: 

In Shakespearean times, Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) was known as “Honey Stalks” because of its popularity with bees. Red Clover is one of the world’s oldest agricultural crops, cultivated since prehistoric times, and has a long history as a religious and magical symbol. Early Christians linked the plant to the Trinity, and during the Middle Ages it was considered a charm against evil. The four-leaf clover, an occasional variety resulting from mutation, was and still is considered a sign for luck. Red clover was also the model for the “clubs” suit in playing cards. Among the largest of the various clover species, Red Clover has a celebrated reputation for its health properties. Red Clover has a delicate flavor that can be brewed and served hot or cold and sweetened with honey. Many enjoy Red Clover tea mixed with Chamomile tea.
