Six months of drinking Burdock and Dandelion Root Tea has made me a believer in miracle herbs.  This tea is a wonderful remedy for most minor ailments.  My daughter and I have found it to be a healing balm for numerous health conditions including PMS, gout, bowel irregularity,  and all kinds of skin disorders including acne, eczema and psoriasis.

As a natural blood cleanser, Burdock Root pulls toxins from the liver. Dandelion Root is helpful in cleansing the kidneys, gallbladder, and colon. Together, these wild roots promote the secretion of bile, stimulate the liver and pancreas, and help the body to balance hormones.

This tea is an excellent spring tonic for liver cleansing.  Since these plants grow wild in Pennsylvania's fields and meadows, I can dig them easily (not to mention the roots are pesticide-free).  Below is my method for making root tea.

ROOT TEA | Burdock & Dandelion

Always dig roots free of pesticide and chemicals (many lawns and farm fields are sprayed several times a year).  Wash roots carefully to remove soil (lay extra roots out to dry for storage).  Pour spring water into a 5 quart pan.  Add one 3 inch root of dandelion and one 3 inch root of burdock.  Boil together for one hour or until the water turns dark.  To improve the flavor (quite frankly it tastes like dirt) add mint leaves and honey.  It may  help to think of this drink as a medicine instead of a tea.  Store leftover tea in the refrigerator and reheat a cup at a time


For ailments, drink one cup at breakfast and one cup at dinner every day for six months or until the condition improves. As a liver cleanser, drink one cup in the morning and evening for 10 days. 


Burdock and Dandelion Root Tea improves the systems of the body that aid in removing toxins and eliminating waste.  I have found that many minor health conditions can be completely healed when this tea is taken for a period of six months to a year.
