Introduction to Teasel Root

Teasel Root is native to Japan and China. It is an erect and stout herb, with lots of compact white flowers, but the root is the interesting part for Chinese medicine. It is known to particularly affect the skeletal system, the liver and the urinary system.


How Teasel Root Is Used

Teasel root is generally taken as an extract in capsule or pill form, or alternatively as an extract to make tea. Externally, teasel root is sometimes combined with others herbs (often dragon's blood and drynaria) to form a poultice.


There are no known side effects documented about taking Teasel Root, but of course if you do experience an adverse reaction when taking any herb you should stop immediately.
