We discovered a fantastic page over at Common Sense Home that gives a tutorial on how to harvest and use dandelion roots. The link follows after our introduction to the topic. We’ve also included several other links to other pages on dandelions so that you can learn all about this interesting and useful plant!

Dandelions, the wonderful yellow flowers that are adored by children and cursed by lawn owners, are in fact one of the most versatile of herbs – with numerous uses for the flowers, leaves and even the roots! It’s a sad fact that they are sprayed and destroyed in such great numbers by people who have no knowledge of their real value and virtues.

Not only can dandelion plants be used in an astonishingly wide variety of delicious recipes but they have a tremendous number of uses in herbal medicine – and have been employed by herbalists since very ancient times. Dandelion is commonly listed in ancient herbals (this link is to our giant “master list” of ancient herbal textbooks).

A search of Pubmed shows over 500 scientific papers reporting on the various properties of dandelion and there are some very interesting results. A few of the studies have found antidepressant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects for dandelion or its extracted components. A new 2014 study found evidence that one dandelion species (Taraxacum mongolicum) had an effect against Hepatitis B in human cells.

There are many, many more. Pubmed is my standard “go to” source for herbal research and a fast way to catch up on the actual scientific work that has been done.

Here are some more interesting dandelion links from our website:

Important note – if you are going to harvest and use dandelions, be sure that they haven’t been sprayed with weedkiller. Dandelion is one of the plants that is often targeted by the brainwashed sprayers of evil herbicides, so you might be best off collecting dandelion roots from your own organic garden… and of course wash your harvest carefully.

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

    @Makwa, I’d love to know how to make the coffee! I live in the country and in spring my yard is covered with dandelions. Can you tell me how to do this, or send me to the right website?
    Thanks, I appreciate it.
