Somewhere in the mix of research, I came upon the uses of burdock oil.
I have burdock all over, so I decided to make the oil. One case they said to put the oil and root in a dark room for so many weeks. Another said to water bath it gently. So, I went to my herbal books from the homesteading bookshelf and took another look on making oils. In the past I have made them in a sunny window (calendula, chive).
I decided on making my hair oil using both burdock root,
and nettle. I allowed the burdock root to dry for 12 hours (or overnight), because I just dug it up. The nettle has been dried.
It will be a few weeks before I can strain this oil and try it. Burdock has properties that help hair growth by strengthening it via the scalp when applied. I decided to add some calendula as well.
Also, I wanted to try cooking the leaves and stalks, so I did a bit of digging for recipes. I got so many different ones too. Although I think stinging nettle has more nourishment. Like I tell my kids - a rotation of all the greens is good for the body.
