Known to most as a pesky weed, dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) flushes the system while providing potassium.
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) defends the liver.
Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is one of many herbs that can help clean the lymphatic system.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a diaphoretic, or an herb that encourages sweating.
Like yarrow and elder, boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum) prompts the body to sweat out impurities.
