USES - Burdock oil is a very powerful oil derived from the roots and leaves of the burdock plant, which comprises a number of species within the Arctium genus. Burdock oil is a highly concentrated source of various tannins, flavonoids, phytosterols, and fiber. It has moderate levels of vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin E, iron, zinc, magnesium, potassium and “good” fats. While burdock root can sometimes be orally consumed as a food, burdock oil is primarily used in topical, non-ingested forms. There are some medical treatments that include the consumption of small amounts of this oil, but this should be done very carefully, and under the strict guidance of a trained medical professional.
