Susun Weed



With so many abilities to offer, it is no wonder that burdock (Articum lappa) is a beloved ally of wise women and herbalists everywhere. Burdock's action is most profound on lymph, sweat, and oil glands, though its influence is felt in the liver, lungs, kidneys, stomach, uterus, and joints. Medicines made from the fresh burdock root are always preferable and superior to dried root preparations. Burdock is not for people in a hurry, or most acute problems; burdock works thoroughly and slowly.


Use burdock root as a nourishing tonic, a skin clearer, a super cooler, a slick trick in the guts, and a guardian of your inner flows.


  • Dose of fresh burdock root tincture is 30-240 drops a day, in water
  • Dose of dried burdock root infusion is 1/2-2 cups/125ml-500ml a day.
  • Dose of burdock root decoction is 1-9 teaspoons/5-45ml a day.
