Originating in Europe, northern Asia and Africa, red clover blossoms are the bright pink and red blossoms found in patches of clover. Red clover can also be found scattered across North America, commonly regarded as nothing but a weed. These blossoms, which as especially high in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, have been used for various purposes for centuries both topically and internally. Red clover blossoms are incredibly nutrient-dense and have been used for centuries as teas and infusions, eaten raw, and even baked into foods such as breads and cookies. Red clover blossom was especially popular among Native Americans and was highly revered for the benefits.
