Clover is a plant that many people are often surprised has medicinal benefits. Known best as a rapidly growing feed source for livestock, or the pollen source for honey, this beautiful plant is also a useful herb. We get to benefit from its rapid growth and amazing properties. The flower itself is delicious to chew on (just make sure to find clover that has not been sprayed). Clover is high in a number of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, B vitamins, beta-carotene, calcium, and many trace minerals. This plant is also high in phytoestrogens which may help with menopause symptoms. Used in salads, teas, tinctures, extracts, and topically clover is more than a beautiful flower.

This flowering plant is quite easy to grow. Like plantain, red clover shows up nearly everywhere. The scientific name is Trifolium pratense, a member of the legume family. Red clover will thrive best in full sun with well-draining soil. The plant has beautiful pink flowers all summer which are best picked in the morning. Growing only a few inches tall but spreading rapidly, many home gardeners prefer to plant red clover in containers so it will not take over. Bees absolutely love red clover and will help ensure a healthy plant.

Brittany B. said this about Scout Out:
“Ok people, this is awesome: extra nasty bad cough in a two-year-old for over five days; my product arrives; BOOM! In one day, two doses in two separate bottles and NOT ONE COUGH. attitude- no lethargy. sounds-no phlegm. yep, it is amazing. I did purchase the 8oz bottle so that the rest of my family can also take it; which resulted in no coughs, and no phlegm sounds, and no lethargy. One super happy, very pregnant, mama over here!”
