Herbs for Taurus Season: Burdock Root

Taurus is a fixed earth sign ruled by the planet Venus. Being the first earth sign in the zodiac, that earth energy is real earthy in our Taurus friends. Steadfast and sure, Taurus is known to be one of the most loyal signs there is. But mess with the bull and you might get the horns—they are also known to be a little on the stubborn side, resistant to change, and prone to stagnation.

Alteratives are a classification of herbs specific to the western herbalism which help to cleanse the blood and remove metabolic waste from the organs in our bodies. On both a physical and emotional level, alteratives are excellent for Taurus Season. After all, Spring cleaning isn’t just for our physical spaces, after a long sedentary winter our bodies can often benefit from a little refresh as well!

Burdock is one example of an alterative that has been used as both food and medicinally. The roots are nutrient dense and best used long term to support chronic issues, the leaves are often used for topical issues, and the seeds for acute conditions like sore throat and cough—perfect for Taurus which corresponds with the neck/throat!
