1. Burdock Root

One of the greatest things about burdock root is that it is super high in antioxidants. Anti-oxidants kill the free radicals that are floating around your body all the time that can cause damage to us on a cellular level and cause premature aging signs such as wrinkles and dry skin. Burdock is often thought of as a weed in North America but it can produce great results when it comes to those suffering from eczema, acne, and psoriasis. Burdock root is a known anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial. This plant contains quercetin, luteolin, and phenolic acid, all of which are potent antioxidants. Burdock root is also used as a blood purifier and is often used to treat skin problems such as dermatitis, bruises, dandruff, cysts, and boils.


2. Calendula

Sometimes called marigold, calendula is known to both heal and regenerate skin tissue. In studies done with humans, calendula has been found to improve the hydration levels and the firmness of skin. Calendula oil used in a cream form has been shown to be effective in fighting UVB radiation induced alterations of the skin.


3. Nettle

Nettle, when added to cleansers, really deep cleans the pores. There are more than 500 species of nettle grown throughout the world. While it is widely considered just a weed to many people, this plant actually has powerful medicinal and healing compounds. Nettle is super rich in minerals including chlorine, sulphur, magnesium, calcium, potassium, copper, and silica, which are vital to the rejuvenation of cells. Nettle is also an astringent herb, which can help to balance out oily skin. When added to cleansers, it can help to deep clean pores and stop infections. Added to shampoos, it can quickly clear up dry scalp problems and dandruff.
