Ever wondered why certain plants are considered weeds and others are deemed worthy of keeping around?

The herbalists that we work with would tell you there’s no such thing as a “weed”, and that often times the wild plants that sprout up in our well-groomed backyards are encroaching on our lives because we need them.

Today, I want to focus on a bright and cheery superherb that has been aiding humans for thousands of years but somehow gets a bad rap here in the United States. My 6-year-old son is so enchanted by these common flowers that he has coined his own nick-name for them – “wish-makers.”

You might know them as dandelions.

From the spring through early summer and again in the fall, dandelions pop up all over our lawn – but they’re usually weed-whacked away like unwanted pests. What many don’t realize is that they’re destroying a medicinal powerhouse that their bodies often need.

The word dandelion comes from the French “Dent de lion” or “lions tooth,” a reference to their incisor-patterned leaves.

In France, a centuries-old heritage of herbalism plays a large part in their legendary cuisine. Because of its versatility, both as a food and a medicine, the dandelion is a cherished ingredient in prized dishes from Paris to Marseille.
