Botanical name: Trifolium pratense
Red clover is considered an alterative, helping gradually restore proper bodily functions. Sometimes referred to as a blood cleanser, it assists in detoxification and is thus used
for chronic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Red clover is one of the richest sources of phytoestrogens and is therefore used for menopause, PMS, irregular periods, breast health as well as reducing the risk of benign prostate hyperplasia.
It is traditionally used for respiratory problems such as coughs, bronchitis and asthma due to its antispasmodic and expectorant actions.
Preparation: Use 1-2 tsp per cup. Pour just boiled water over leaves, infuse 10 minutes.
Drink as needed.
