RED CLOVER is a mild blood purifier which is suitable for general consumption and long term usage. Its taste is pleasant and it is mildly strengthening. It can be used with children, the elderly or in conditions of debility, where blood purification is needed but where the patient is weak and stronger herbal alteratives may weaken the blood. Its effectiveness in cancer is mainly in large amounts or with other antitumor agents.

Externally, it is a good wash for dry and scaly skin, and as a paste or poultice for sores that do not heal, it is particularly good.

For more acute and infectious conditions other alteratives, like echinacea or barberry, are stronger.
