  • Burdock roots fresh
  • Olive oil


  • After leaving a fresh burdock root out for 1-2 days, chop it into small pieces, or crush the root.
  • Put the burdock root into an airtight mason jar and fill it with olive oil.
  • Place the jar in a dark, cool place for 4-6 weeks, opening it once per week to release any air bubbles that have accumulated.
  • Strain the burdock oil to remove pieces of the root and store the oil in an amber bottle in a cool, dark place between uses.
