Red Clover Flower

Also known as wild clover, cleaver grass, marl grass, cow grass, trefoil and purple clover, red clover is the national flower of Denmark and the state flower of Vermont. Red clover is used for skin problems including eczema, nappy rash and psoriasis. It is also good for hot flashes and night sweats and has been shown to improve cardiovascular function during menopause.

The Romans, Ancient Greeks and Celts revered it.
