Burdock Root & Rosemary Oil for Thinning Hair


  • 2-3  heaped teaspoons of dried or fresh burdock root

  • 1 cup of olive oil

  • A few sprigs of fresh rosemary or 5 teaspoons dried

  • Sterile glass jar

Dried Burdock Root


2-3 teaspoons of dried burdock root

  1. Fill up the jar with olive oil. Exact measurements depend on how big the glass jar is.Close the jar and place in a dark cabinet. 

  2. Let the mixture infuse for up to 6 weeks while the goodness sips out of the burdock roots.

  3. Open up the jar every week to release the air bubbles that build up inside.

  4. After 6 weeks, strain the mix through a cheesecloth and discard the roots. 

How to use

Once a week massage the oil well into your scalp, then do the end and rest of your hair. I comb mine and then put it up in a clip leave it in for 20 minutes.  (I leave it in all day washing it out before bed or the next morning, just make sure you put a towel on your pillow if you sleep with it in). 

Pour the burdock root oil into a dark bottle and store in a cool area. 

Warning: It is advised that diabetics and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding consult a physician before using burdock root oil.
