Please see the picture above.
Dandelion (Cassia Occidentailis) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 10th century and has proven value as a diuretic (flushing excess water from the body).
It also promotes the flow of bile and stimulates the appetite. Dandelion juice once enjoyed considerable popularity as a diuretic, laxative and remedy for rheumatism. In folk medicine, dandelion is also used as a remedy for haemorrhoids, gout, rheumatism, eczema, other skin conditions, and diabetes. (JamaicaGleaner.com)
