One plant that has major benefits to your health and well-being is Dandelion, its botanical name is Taraxacum officinale which comes from the genus family of plants called Asteraceae, where it splits into different species.

It will greet the morning with its petals open and bid good night with them firmly closed making this wonderful plant extremely receptive to its environment.  Every part of this it can be used for medicinal or even general purposes i.e. dyeing cloth. It also has a trinity element where by it represents the 3 celestial bodies of the sun, moon and stars.  The petals resonate with the glowing sun, the inflorescence central dome the moon and dispersing seeds the stars.
