Dipsacus_fullonum_002
Wild Teasel (Dipsacus sylvestris, Dipsacus fullonum) is one of many important herbs for healing Lyme (and regenerating the immune system in general) and it does help with inflammations (like arthritis). Mainly teasel root tincture is used, but one could also juice some of the (also very bitter!) leaves (just not too many or you won’t be able to drink it!) with carrots, or other veggies. I suggest you grow the herb yourself (if you can), also because the tincture is quite expensive, considering that one might have to take up to 3 tsp per day (1 tsp 3x daily). More photos of the herb are down below.

    It grows prolifically around here. The Goldfinch love it.
    However the thorns are nasty, just like the thistle.
    The spent seed pod was used to ‘pull’ cotton bolls, or ‘tease’ them in the 1800’s, they were threaded onto a shaft and rotated and the bolls were passed under on a board consisting of several shafts which were then manipulated by hand to pull the cotton thread into a fine sheet which ws then torn to be sent to be spun into thread.
