Burdock Root (cut)
 
Burdock is a strong liver purifying and hormone balancing herb. Burdock's most notable property is its ability to neutralize most poisons, relieving both the kidney and lymphatic system.

Burdock root is a famous detoxifying agent. Its diuretic effect helps the kidneys quickly filter impurities from the blood. The volatile oils in burdock promote sweating to further eliminate toxins through the skin. Burdock increases circulation to the skin, helping to detoxify skin tissue. This purification removes the burden from the kidneys and liver. Burdock also contains a carbohydrate called inulin, which strengthens the liver.

Burdock is also used for skin conditions that result in dry and scaly skin, such as psoriasis and eczema.

Marshmallow Root
 

For many years marshmallow plants have been used to relieve coughs and sore throats, as well as for chapped skin and minor wounds.

Both the root and the leaf of the marshmallow plant contain a substance known as mucilate, a mucusy substance that does not dissolve in water. It is this substance that causes marshmallow to swell up and become slippery when wet. This attribute of the marshmallow plant gives it the ability to soothe irritation of the mouth, throat and stomach, as well as to relieve coughing.

Marshmallow is also believed to have a limited ability to fight infection and boost the immune system.
