Burdock Root Tincture, Burdock Root Oil and other Burdock Root Uses

A burdock root tincture is one of the common uses for burdock root, and is a good method of harnessing the healthful properties of burdock.

Generally, burdock is usually available in combination with other herbs as a tea, in tinctures, and in capsule form. One great feature about the burdock herb is its edible taproot, which can be cooked and consumed.

Burdock root is very crisp and has a sweet, mild, and pungent flavour with a little muddy harshness that can be reduced by soaking shredded roots in water for five to ten minutes. Leaves and fruits (seeds) of the burdock plant are also useful in treating several physical body conditions.

A note about Burdock Root Liquid Extracts / Tinctures, Burdock Root Oil and other Burdock Root Uses

Herbs are God and nature's gifts to us. While the use of herbs and herb remedies has brought excellent results for many people, do note that their health benefits may be limited when they are used in isolation. However, when combined with some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition, the impact on one's health will be greatly magnified.

In natural health and healing, we believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases. We also believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man’s understanding. It is thus a good idea to apply these fundamental health steps no matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem.

Burdock Root Oil and its benefits

Ancient Chinese medicine combined burdock root with other herbs to treat colds, measles, sore throats, and tonsillitis.

Another of the many burdock root uses lie in helping the hair. Burdock root oil extract, also called Bur oil, also helps in treating scalp infections and irritation caused by dandruff. Burdock oil helps in reducing scalp itching, redness, improves scalp conditions, and promotes hair growth.

Modern studies indicate that burdock root oil extract is rich in phytosterols and essential fatty acids (including rare long chain EFAs), the nutrients required to maintain healthy scalp and promote natural hair growth. It combines an immediate relieving effect with the nutritional support of normal functions of sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Regular use of burdock oil helps restore and maintain healthy scalp and hair.

Burdock Root Tincture

Burdock (Arctium lappa) has been traditionally used as a skin remedy for acne, boils, abscesses, eczema and psoriasis. It can be taken alone or mixed with other herbs such as dandelion root or yellow dock root, to balance its strong cleansing action.

Burdock can occasionally worsen skin conditions initially due to its strong detoxifying action. To avoid this, build up the dosage gradually.

Making a burdock root tincture:
Soak 1 cup of dried burdock root in high-proof vodka to cover, in an airtight jar. Shake daily for three weeks, then strain. Take ½ teaspoon three times a day.
