Flower of the day, Nov 20, 2017 – Dandelion


  • The common name, dandelion translates to dent-de-lion in French, and means “the lion’s tooth”. This summons symbolic meaning of lion’s, which deals withย courage, pride, family (communication/connection), and – interestingly enough – the dandelion is also a sun symbol.
  • The health benefits of dandelion include relief from liver disorders,ย diabetes, urinary disorders, acne,ย jaundice,ย cancer, andย anemia.
  • It also helps in maintaining bone health,ย skinย care, and weightย loss.
  • It is also richย inย vitamin A,ย vitamin C,ย iron,ย calcium, and detoxifiers, which explains its common inclusion in medicines.
  • Despite the health benefits of dandelions, they are traditionally more popular as ornamental flowering plants than as medicine, because the flowers look brilliant and are frequently seen in gardens and parks.
  • There are many varieties of dandelion, but the common one is scientifically known asย Taraxacum officinale. In terms of history, the plant is believed to have evolved about 30 million years ago in Eurasia.
