Cleavers (Galium aparine) is fun to play with, fun as a bracelet, fun to stick on somebody's back…yet it has gentle, but powerful medicinal gifts, as well. Listen in as I explore the many benefits of cleavers with Angela Rahim. You’ll also receive Angela’s kid-friendly recipe for a cleavers omelette.

Angela Rahim is an herbalist, permaculturist and the author of the children's herbal adventure series called Sam: The Junior Herbalist. She's the mother of seven and resides in Ohio.

Listen in for:

► Making it fun for children to work with herbs

► Soothing irritated skin with cleavers

► Getting to know easily overlooked herbs

Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation:

“When I go to visit my family in Baltimore and I walk around the neighborhoods, I see chicory, I see cleavers, I see chickweed, I see plantain. And I'm like, ‘So many people walk past these plants on a daily basis and they really don't know what gems they have.’”

It was a joy to connect with Angela and I’m delighted to share our conversation with you!
