PLANT PROFILE: Red CloverSo much LOVE for this motherly, heart warming & supportive plant spirit! She's healing to the heart chakra, root chakra, sacral womb, endocrine system & an amazing lymph tonic! She's great for releasing sorrow and toxins, creating space in the throat for open communication. She especially taps into relationship trauma with mothers.
Abundant in antioxidant vitamins/ minerals, great for the common cold, drying the upper respiratory passages, reducing swollen glands & post nasal drip; relieving coughs and chest congestion.
Red clover is a galactagogue, encouraging a plentiful supply of breast milk and supports the overall health of mother and child (if you’re nursing and interested please consult your dr. before consuming).
She’s an antispasmodic, inhibits tumor growth, anti-cancer (best with breast, uterine, ovarian & lymphatic), menstrual regulator, uterine cyst & fibroid cleanser, increases fertility, eases painful periods, hormone tonic (balances and regulates) and skin cleanser (treats eczema, acne, rashes etc...)
