Butchers Broom

imagesUQBCF9QDButchers Broom is a short evergreen shrub that grows primarily in the Mediterranean region of Europe. Butchers scrubbed their chopping block with its leaves and twigs up to the 20th century, hence the name.

Herbalists use Butchers Broom for circulatory ailments and also as an anti-inflammatory agent for various vascular disorders. It is often made into a bitter tea to get the blood flowing to the limbs and is affective in preventing Thrombosis or blood clotting after surgery. As a mild diuretic, it helps reduce swelling in the legs and can be used to treat Varicose Veins and Phlebitis.
