    Chickweed Herb

    Designation: Absolutely Organic
    Item Order #: T121

    A native plant of all temperate and north Arctic regions, Chickweed was said to have naturalized itself wherever the white man has settled. Its popularity with birds probably accounts for its name. Chickweed has egg shaped leaves with small white star-shaped flowers. The flowers open in the morning and remain facing the sun throughout the day. The leaves approach each other at night so that their upper surfaces protect new shoots. Young leaves of the plants are used in salads. When boiled, it can hardly be distinguished from spring spinach. Learn More

    Designation: Ethically Wildcrafted

It is thus known as "bedstraw" and is thought to have been the bedding material used by Mother Mary when she gave birth to Jesus.

    We learn from Dioscorides that the Greek shepherds of his day employed the stems of this herb to make a rough sieve to strain milk, and is still used the same way in Sweden to this day. Cleavers is a very beneficial herb, makes an excellent vegetable and the tea can be enjoyed as a drink or used as a facial wash.
