Red clover is a wild plant belonging to the legume family. It has been used medicinally to treat several conditions including cancer, indigestion, high cholesterol, respiratory problems, and skin inflammations, such as psoriasis and eczema. Some women use red clover for symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes; for breast pain or tenderness (mastalgia); and for premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Red clover makes a wonderful ingredient in herbal tea, adding a light, sweet flavor along with its abundant medicinal properties. It may be integrated into a salve or balm and is traditionally used to support healthy skin.
