The use of Dandelion helps detoxify the system thus, improving health, increasing mobility and reducing stiffness in the joints.
The common Dandelion is a native of Greece. It thrives under almost any condition and has spread to nearly every part of the world. The first part of the botanical name, Leontodon was derived from two Greek words meaning 'lion' and 'tooth'. It is believed that the name was given to the plant because the jagged leaf looks like the teeth of a lion. Again others say that Dandelion gets its name from the French, 'dent de Leon', meaning teeth of the lion. The Latin name Taraxacum is from the Greek taraxos, meaning disorder and akos meaning remedy.
Dandelion is also known by a number of common names, among them, blow ball, which brings up early memories of a childhood game played in the park. You would give the matured seedhead your best puff of air sending the light seeds off into the air and then counting the seeds remaining to see how many children you were destined to have.
