Botanical Name: Galium aparine
Cleavers is a creeping plant with tiny hairs, clinging leaves, and sticky seeds that cling to passers-by. Found growing around the world, Galium aparine is an herbaceous annual in the Rubiaceae family. Cleavers is also called bedstraw after one of its historical uses as mattress stuffing. While the leaves and stems are eaten fresh on spring salads, dried cleavers herb is commonly tinctured, steeped as tea, or used topically.
Cleavers enhances the function of the lymphatic system and improves its ability to flush out toxins, decrease congestion and reduce swelling. The lymph-cleansing action of this herb in turn enhances the function of the immune system.
