It stops hemorages of all kinds, making it a favorite of midwives for post-delivery bleeding.
But it’s also great for headaches, diarrhea, bladder infections, abnormally long moon cycles, and menstral cramps.
You can also put it directly on the skin for treating nose bleeds, sunburns or other kids of burns, and any skin injuries that have bleeding.
One of the things that stood out to me when I first encountered Shepard’s Purse was how delicate and tiny it was.
Recently I made a salad and added the flowers and leaves into it. The taste is very delicate and makes for an interesting texture and a fun addition to meals.
