About Teasel: This special herb grows abundantly in Avena’s biodynamic gardens. The purple, spiky flowers of this biennial plant attract lots of bees! We hand-dig the fibrous first year roots of teasel from our gardens and tincture them immediately in organic alcohol. We let some of the flowers go to seed to produce next year's crop. Supports the musculoskeletal, immune, and digestive systems and the body’s detoxification pathways. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, teasel is used when there is a yin deficiency -- not enough fire or energy to maintain one’s inner vitality, one’s vital essence. Teasel improves and strengthens the integrity of a person’s energetic boundary.
