The lymphatic system comprises the lymph nodes and their connecting vessels as well as the tonsils, spleen and appendix. The lymphatic system works in tandem with the circulatory system and contributes to the healthy flow of fluid throughout the body.
Cleavers is one of the most effective, diuretic, blood purifiers known used to treat enlarged lymph glands, cystitis, psoriasis and skin diseases and eruptions.

It has anti-viral properties, both preventive and defensive. Lady's Mantle has potent astringent properties and for centuries has been used by European healers.
