History and Folklore:
The first recorded name of Arctium lappa is thought to be Arcion, as used by the Greeks, which Dioscorides proposed was called personacea or lappa by the Romans. In the past some questioned whether Dioscorides was referring to greater burdock in this entry, but historians have come to believe that the other entry Arction is that of lesser burdock or A. minus. Burdock being a somewhat ungainly plant with little to speak of in the department of blooms and fragrance, hasn’t gained a lot of fame in lore or folk traditions. It is mentioned in an ancient land-remedy ritual said to improve the crops from the field and remove any sorcery cast upon the land.
Growth and Habitat:
Burdock thrives along river banks, disturbed habitats, roadsides, vacant lots, and fields. It grows throughout North America but not in the southern regions.
All of my tinctures are made with fresh plant matter that has been either ethically wildcrafted from contaminant free areas or it has been grown organically in my own garden!
I use 100 proof food grade alcohol which means each bottle has 50% water 50% alcohol so each drop is a balanced 1:1 ratio and is ready to use straight out of the bottle!
I offer two common sizes of lead-free glass dropper bottles 15ml & 30ml! The 15ml is ideal for your pocket and taking with you on trips and the 30ml is the perfect size for your remedy cabinet at home!
Each tincture label displays dosage suggestions!
