Common Uses

Red clover contains a high amount of protein, and is high in minerals and vitamins. This makes it an excellent remedy for psoriasis, eczema and other skin disorders.

Red clover may help treat tumours, however further research is required.


For skin disorders, red clover can be used both internally and externally. For internal use, make a tea or tincture to gently stimulate liver and gallbladder function. For external use, a cooled tea or poultice can be applied for symptomatic relief. A pinch of dried red clover in the food daily can be used as a preventative.

For cancerous lesions, apply a poultice of red clover flowers for several hours a day.
