Seen by many in North America and Europe as a common weed, burdock is a sturdy biennial plant reaching up to 6 feet (2 m) high, with 18 inch (50 cm) wide leaves forming a rosette at ground level, with smaller versions growing up the thick flowering stem. Burdock's roots grow straight down as much as 3 feet (1M) into the subsoil. In mid-summer, the plant blossoms into a dense array of globular flowers with sticky bracts that cling to passing animals and people. The plant grows on roadsides and waste places and around field boundaries throughout Britain, Europe and North America.


Up to 50% inulin, polyacetylenes, volatile acids (acetic, proprionic, butyric, isovaleric), non-hydroxyl acids (lauric, myristic, stearic, palmitic), polyphenolic acids, and tannins.

Typical Preparations

It is best taken as a tea in herb form. May also be taken as a capsule or extract. In Asia it is used as an ingredient in soups, stews, and stir fries, while sometimes eaten raw.


Burdock is cultivated for food in Japan where it is called gobo. The root is consumed as an everyday vegetable, similar to a carrot. Native Americans were known to use the whole plant as food, boiling the root in maple syrup (which made it like candy) so that it could be stored for longer periods of time. A mildly bitter herb, it stimulates the release of gastric juices and aids digestion. Burdock is traditionally used to sooth the skin, helping to alleviate the irritation and discomfort associated with various causes. Animal studies have shown that burdock may possess liver protective qualities. Burdock has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, as well as contain potent antioxidants. Traditional herbal medicine refers to burdock as a powerful blood purifier.

Alkaline herbs are a great way to start or end your day. You can steam them in boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes to make tea or grind them to make herbal capsules or powders. You can also create tinctures, decoctions, infusions, hair & body products.

Herbs and spices do not generally spoil, but they do lose some potency over time, which is why we offer the sizes we do. How they are stored will play a large role in how long they retain their potency. They should be kept in paper bags, in a cool, dark, dry place. Whole herbs can last up to 3 years, cut and sifted or ground will last up to 2 years.
