Clivers has many names, cleavers, goosegrass, grip grass or hayruff to name a few.
It is a great blood cleanser and lymphatic cleanser. It also helps flush out gall stones if drunk as a tea regularily.
The herb has a special curative reputation with reference to cancerous growths and allied tumours, an ointment being made from the leaves and stems wherewith to dress the ulcerated parts, the expressed juice at the same time being used internally.
Used as a wash, Clivers has traditionally been used to alleviate sunburn and the intensity of freckles. As a tea, Clivers has been used for skin conditions such as psoriasis and for helping the person with insomnia get to sleep.
It was later used for colds, swellings, etc., the whole plant being rather astringent, and on account of this property being of service in some bleedings, as well as in diarrhoea. Clivers tea is still a rural remedy for colds in the head.
The crushed herb is applied in France as a poultice to sores and blisters.
