Starwest Botanicals, Cleavers, Herb, 1 lb Organic Whole Herb
Botanical Name: Galium aparine
Common Names: Bedstraw, goose grass, goose's hair
A relative of the coffee plant, Galium aparine has many colorful names besides cleaver's herb, which include goosegrass, robin-run the hedge, stickywilly and catchweed. The last two names are significant when you consider that fresh cleaver's herb are fuzzy and have a tendency to stick to fabric. Although this natural herb is edible when boiled, this fuzz makes Galium aparine a poor choice to eat raw.
In traditional folk herbalism, cleaver's herb was used for rashes and other dermal disorders and injuries. In addition, Galium aparine appears to act as a relaxant. When boiled, the root of the Galium aparine plant produces a harmless red dye that is used in the manufacture of clothing made from fabrics.
