💛 Yellow or Curly Dock ✨
Golden root, Curly leaves
Best known for its ability to help us with conditions that require cooling and drying; internally it’s a liver loving herb that is generally toning and also for poor digestion-especially of fatty foods & diarrhea (but can also act as a laxative 🤷🏻♀️ depending on what you need from it); externally for rashes and inflammation, among many other things. The leaves can be eaten raw, or lightly cooked, they do not freeze well, but it should be done in moderation due to the presence of oxalates, which can hinder calcium absorption. Avoid if pregnant or diabetic. In small amounts Dock is bitter and stimulates liver bile that begins the process of digestion.
I love how they rattle in the wind when they go to seed 🙏🏼
