General: Young Burdock root and immature flowers are important culinary items in Korea, China, and Japan, where it is also used a diuretic. In 1948 George de Mestral saw how Burdock seeds hooked themselves to his clothes, an observation that prompted the invention of velcro.
Skin Benefits: The root of this weedy plant possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties and is very soothing to the skin. Rich in antioxidants, it protects skin from environmental damage. We use it in our Hairgasm Sea Salt Texturizing Mist.
