Many view dandelions as pesky weeds, but little do they know, these taproot champs actually jazz up the soil by boosting nitrogen levels. Who knew that those very roots, dried and diced, could be the star of a herbal tea party?


Store in a cool, dark place in an airtight container.


Decoct to make infusions for use in creams, lotions and other topical products. Make a decoction of the root as a tea additive or an alternative to coffee. May be added to garden soil as a nitrogen enhancer. May increase the effects of diuretics and diabetes medications in large doses. 


Dandelion is one of those common backyard “weeds” that also has many practical uses. While the leave is appreciated as a salad green and vegetable, the dried root is used to produce a hot beverage that offers a bitter flavor like coffee but without caffeine.


In addition to bitter compounds, dandelion root also contains numerous vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This herb has a long history of use as a tonic and restorative. In fact, due to the actions of some of its compounds, dandelion root may increase the effects of certain prescription medications. It may also speed the metabolism of synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotics.
