Brewing instructions


Milk Thistle Seeds Latin Name is Silybum Marianum and comes from the Asteraceae plant family. Milk Thistle is a biennial herbal plant that was originally native to Southern Europe through to Asia. Nowadays it is grown commercially in America and Australia. Growing wild the plant can often be regarded as a weed, but it is a gem from Nature's locker!

A few weeks after the thistle has flowered the plant and seed is harvested. The cut plant is dried to produce a leafy herbal tea, the seeds are also dried for culinary uses and as a Tisane. Milk Thistle is regarded as a hepatoprotector, meaning that it helps to prevent damage to the liver. The Ancient Greek Medic Pedanius Dioscorides studied the use of wild plants whilst working for the Roman Army and discovered the benefits of Milk Thistle including helping with snake bites and sadness !
