Before we show you how to make red clover root tea, learn how to harvest red clover
How to Harvest Red Clover
Red clover root (Trifolium pratense) is harvested during its flowering period, from May to September. Thoroughly wash the root, spread it in a thin layer on a piece of paper, and leave it to dry in a shaded place. Then you can store the dried red clover root in paper bags, and use it for a maximum of one year. Turn it into a powder right when you need it, as it will lose its medicinal properties if you make it in advance.
How to Make Red Clover Root Tea
Pour a cup of boiling water over a spoonful of dry and chopped clover root. Boil on a steam bath (double boiler) for one hour. Strain and top up with boiled and cooled water to have the original volume of one cup of tea. Red clover root tea has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, anti-allergic, and anti-fungal properties, which help detoxify the body, prevent stomach problems, and is especially good for menstrual cramps and heavy flow due to its estrogenic properties.
Beware! Clover remedies are not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding!
