Burdock General Information
Native to Europe and Asia, the plant has become available in all parts of the world. Its name is a combination of French and English, “bur” coming from the French bourre and “dock” coming from the Old English reference to large leaves. This herb has funnel shaped crimson blossoms and grows to about five or six feet tall. Burdock is also a medicinal herb. In Japan it is called gobo and is used as a food that provides deep strengthening to the immune system. Ancient Chinese and Indian herbalists used Burdock to treat respiratory infections, abscesses, and joint pain. During the Middle Ages, European physicians used it to treat cancerous tumors, skin conditions, venereal disease, and bladder and kidney problems. The root of Burdock resembles the root of the poisonous plant belladonna. The root of Burdock is the primary source of most herbal preparations. The root becomes very soft with chewing and tastes sweet. The root grows straight down just like a carrot.

The Burdock plant is placed in history very well. In the early 40’s George de Mestral a Swiss inventor was taking his dog for a walk. He became curious about the seeds of the Burdock plant that had attached themselves to his clothes and the dog’s fur. Under a microscope he looked closely at the hook and loop system that the seeds use to attach themselves on passing animals and people. He released that the same approach could be used to join other things together. The result was Velcro.

This herb was even known by Shakespeare who mentioned it in three of his plays, “As You Like It”, “King Lear” and “Troilus and Cressida.”

Old Lore and Magik
You can use either the Burdock root or the leaves when using this herb in magik. Burning the leaves can cleanse a room of negative energy. Use small, dried pieces of the root in charm bags for protection. Though Burdock is associated with Venus, it is not often used in love magik. Add to protection incenses and use in such spells. Gather Burdock roots in the waning Moon dry and then cut them into small pieces. String these on red thread like beads and wear from protection against evil and negativity. The leaves of the Burdock when laid to the soles of the feet help to cure gout.

Culpepper stated that this herb, “is under Venus and you may draw the womb which way you please, either upwards by applying it to the crown of the head … or downwards by applying it to the soles of the feet … stay in its place, apply it to the navel … “
