Home Remedy: Cleavers
As for their use as a home remedy, they have long been known as a diuretic (which increases the flow of urine), so they help bladder infections and prostate irritation. Generally, they reduce inflammation and swelling, particularly oedema (fluid retention in soft tissues), as they tone and detoxify the lymph system.
Due to the variety of tannic acids in cleavers, they have good antibacterial and astringent qualities, which help in healing wounds. They are also found in skin creams for psoriasis (under the Latin name Galium aparine). To make your own bath soak with dried or fresh leaves, simply tie about 50g cleavers in a muslin square, or in the foot of old tights, and immerse at bath time.
