HUNGARY. Cleavers (Galium aparine) Certified Organic.
Cleavers have long been heralded as a safe, gentle lymph mover. This herb is easy to identify by its square stems, and the circular pattern the leafs grow from the stem. It is a low growing herb, and the undersides feel ‘sticky’. Actually these are many very small hooks or barbs, which allow the plant to grab on to the plants and grasses growing alongside it and climb up to the light. It has been given a nickname of “velcro weed” by Em, as this is what it reminds her of! A bright green friendly plant, this herb has been an ally to humans for ages.
