Ingredients & Lore
blended with burdock, milk thistle, green rooibos tea, cinnamon, lemon balm, dandelion root & peppermint leaves
Burdock is a plant with prickly heads known as burrs. The burrs can be a bit of a hassle when they cling to pet fur or clothing, but the usefulness of the rest of the plant more than makes up for any other irritations. The roots are common in Asian cuisine, and in the past, leaves were simmered in milk to counteract snake venom. Milk thistle is another plant with a spikey top, though with a lovely purple flower instead of a burr. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.
