Dandelion is also known as blowball, cankerwort, lion’s tooth, priest’s crown, puffball, swine snout and wild endive. It is a perennial plant, found to the dismay of lawn care specialists, almost everywhere.
Dandelion has been used as a diuretic, stomachic and tonic. Dandelion has two particularly important uses: to promote the formation of bile and to remove excess water from the body. As a result it helps to remove toxins/poisons from the body. It can also act as a tonic and stimulant.
