Burdock root & Yarrow
Burdock root effectively clears Heat and Poison from the Blood, being used for all foul and impure conditions of the Blood. It is used for various chronic skin diseases, diseases of the Joints, as well as chronic toxicity of the whole body.
Yarrow moves the Blood while helping stop Bleeding, thereby regulating circulation. It also clears Damp, promotes Sweat, relieves Toxins, reduces Masses, benefits Digestion and stops Leakage.
On the use of Burdock, Hatfield in his Botanic Pharmacopoeia (1886): ‘In the treatment of all blood disorders it is esteemed highly, forming a valuable remedy in old-standing cases of eruptions upon the surface, running sores, and similar chronic impure conditions of the blood. In the minor and more recent rashes and affections it will often be found sufficient in itself to effect a cure. Its value, however, is in all cases greatly enhanced by the addition to it of Yarrow in an equal proportion. This combination has produced surprising results in old-standing diseased conditions of the blood, scurvy, boils–whether occurring as primary or secondary symptoms–abscesses, and chronic, cutaneous diseases generally. These two agents in combination form one of the most excellent and, generally speaking, reliable medicines to which employment can be given for these purposes’.
