Although it is an herb, it still must be treated with respect. Please make sure is it of the highest quality and that you speak to your naturopath prior to extensive use. For a simple seasonal detox or to relieve hormonal symptoms, it can be used lightly without prior advice.
It is easy to dry your own flowers. Pick the flowers by the stem, quickly rinse them under lightly running water, shake off excess water, and tie them into a bouquet with hemp string or yarn. Then hang them upside down and in a few days you will have beautifully dried red clover flowers. Store the flowers in an airtight glass jar away from sunlight.
