We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Taraxacum officinalis



Dandelion tea is well known for its benefits to skin, as it is a good internal cleanser and detoxifying aid.


To use dandelion in your skin care routine, make an infusion of 125ml dandelion to 750ml boiling still spring water. Infuse for thirty minutes, strain and cool. Pour into a clean glass bottle. Use the infusion as a wash for itchy, reddened skin and eczema. This also makes a stimulating face wash. Keep the infusion refrigerated, and use within one week.


Steep dandelion leaves and flowers in sweet almond oil and use as a calming bath or body oil.
