Why do we use Burdock Root?

Burdock Root was popular with European and North American folk healers as a treatment for purifying the blood. Nowadays, many herbalists recommend burdock root for promoting hair growth. The normal hair-growth cycle lasts somewhere between 2-3 years. When your hair is in the growth stage, it will increase in length by about 1/2 inch each month.

A number of things can slow growth or weaken hair such as stress, illness and some medications.
