Burdock Root Wildcrafted naturally

Our Burdock Root is allowed to grow in certain areas of our farm wild

Growing in amongst wildflower and self colonising in many areas, the Wild Burdock is an excellent source of nectar and pollen for all kinds of insections including bees and buterflies.

Harvested by Hand

We harvest our Burdock by hand to ensure the purity of our Burdock root extract.

As our Burdock root is wildharvested it is important to ensure it is only Burdock that makes it into our extract.

After harvesting, we hand sort the Burdock to ensure quality.

Chemical Free Extraction

We extract our Cosmetic Burdock Root extract at High Pressure in Organic Glycerine. For our oil blends we high pressure extract the burdock in Organic Caprylic / Capric triglyceride.

These processing methods not only maintain purity, but makes the cosmetic Burdock extract easy to add to product formulations without additional ingredients.
