I read online that it's the leaves....is it supposed to be flowers?
EDIT: Everyone I've looked it said "dandelion leaves". I'm assuming they mean the leaves, not the flowers?
The idea behind this method is that the dandelion leaf should react to a woman's pregnancy hormone (HCG) levels by getting little red blisters on the leaf if the urine sprayed on it does indeed have HCG levels in it. Instructions are for a woman to saturate the leaf with urine and set the soaking leaf aside (apparently the fresher the leaf, the better) and check the leaf after an hour and check to see if the dandelion leaf has reacted in any way to the woman's urine.
If the leaf gets red blisters on it after and hour, then voila! She is pregnant. If not, then she is not pregnant.
