Burdock has been an important botanical in Western folk herbalism and traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The root, leaf, and seed are used to make medicine. In tea or tincture Burdock can increase urine flow, kill germs, reduce fever, and “purify” their blood. Other times we apply burdock directly to the skin for wrinkles, dry skin (ichthyosis), acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
