Fresh Green Skin Tonic - An Experiment with Cleavers

This is a 'roots-formulating' type of experiment inspired entirely by Medical Herbalist and owner of the Herbal Hub, Vivienne Campbell.

Vivienne sends out a regular newsletter (which is filled with all kinds of inspiring material for the botanically inclined). Her Spring issue got me all excited about getting up close and personal with this seasonal herb.

Today, we're going to take a peek at how I made this super green skin tonic with a plant called Cleavers.
