Burdock Leaf

$10.99

8oz Resealable Package

Burdock has historically been used in Chinese and western herbal medicine for its ability to cleanse and smooth the skin, and treat colds and the flu. It is also thought to relieve the lymphatic system, and help with rheumatism, gout, digestive problems, catarrh, fever, infection, fluid retention, and skin problems. Those who are unaware of its properties consider it a weed due to the plant's appearance. Fun fact: burdock was actually the original ingredient in the first root beer!
