Sheep’s sorrel is a spreading, invasive pasture plant that favors locations where blueberries grow.

Powdered sheep's sorrel can be used to make tinctures and other botanical preparations, but is usually encapsulated as a dietary supplement. The herb is considered nutrient dense because it contains high levels of every vitamin between A and U, as well as minerals and a significant amount of quercitin and beta carotene.

sheep's sorrel

Sheep’s sorrel is a perennial weedy herb that is native to Eurasia and also known by several other common names, such as sour grass, red sorrel and field sorrel.

As persistently invasive as the plant is in most of the United States, it does have redeeming culinary value. The herb lends a lemony, tangy flavor to foods and tea blends. It is also one of the herbs found in the classic Essiac tea formula.
