Cleavers (Galium Aparine) are annual plants that belong to the Madder Family. They grow in the temperate areas of North Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America.
Cleavers benefits are related to the plant’s diuretic, detoxifying, tonic, soothing, cleansing, and demulcent properties, which make Cleavers a preferred herbal treatment for many people around the world.
They have a light, sweet and pleasant scent while their herbal, grassy, fresh, woody, and green flavour resembles that of peas.
Cleavers have been traditionally used as a herbal remedy by many ancient peoples throughout history. In ancient Greece, shepherds used to use this plant as a filter for milk. They thought this would give the milk the plant’s healing and purifying properties. Cleavers have also been used for centuries in traditional Chinese herbal medicine.
