Cleavers Sticky Weed

Galium aparine


Was surprised to find this sticky weed to have so many uses. As a folk medicine, it can be turned into a poultice and wash for a variety of light skin ailments. The leaves can be used to make tea and the roots have been useful in making permanent red dye. It has even been used as mattress stuffing.
