What Cleavers herb Is:
Cleavers herb is a coffee relative, and its seeds, if roasted lightly, are a caffeine-free, albeit inferior, substitute for the traditional morning eye-opener. It grows in moist soil throughout North and South America and the vaguely defined area between Europe and Asia. The bristle-covered fruit emerging from its whitish or green flowers will latch onto (cleave to, if you will) animals that brush by—hence one of the plant's other names, catchweed. Because geese like it a lot, It's also called goosegrass.
Also known as goosegrass and catchweed because of its sticky leaves, Cleavers herb has long been valued as a tonic for the lymphatic system.
Cleavers is used to treat skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. It is also useful in treating swollen glands and urinary stones.
