I love hawthorn. It is an exquisite and beautiful tree and it is absolutely my favorite herb to harvest. Every year in early May I spend a blissful few hours picking hawthorn flowers and leaves. They are soft and have a mild sweet aroma. I feel happy when I am in the hawthorn tree surrounded by its flowers. My personal experience with hawthorn is that it is the best herb for alleviating grief.

Over 20 years ago, Susun Weed’s book “Healing Wise” introduced me to the fascinating and amazing value of Dandelions for health. I have personally used the root in my “liver formula”, eaten the leaves steamed, and this past year I tried the dandelion flowers in tea and found they made me feel happier.
