Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
Is your skin needing a bit more TLC these days?
Allow me to introduce Red Clover, she’s here to help you glow from the inside out.
Traditionally Red Clover was used for its alterative action as a blood cleanser which has helped in cases of many congested skin conditions including acne and psoriasis, as well as in cases of cancer as adjunct therapy, and even to soothe bronchial spasm.
Red Clover has more recently been involved in helping relive menopausal symptoms due to the oestrogenic effects of isoflavones.
Not only a gorgeous flower to look at, but Red Clover also boasts some powerful chemical components including Isoflavones, flavanols, phenolic acids, and volatile oils.
In other words, your skin will thank you.
