Burdock root comes from the burdock plant(arctium lappa) that is related to daisies and sunflowers. It is native to Northern Asia and Europe, but grown in other parts of the world, including North America.
Burdock root has been used in traditional Chinese medicine practices and is known for the many burdock root benefits and a variety of nutrients that it provides. Along with having potent antioxidants and inulin, it is also commonly used to help treat conditions like skin disorders, inflammation, digestion, and more.
At Starwest Botanicals, you can find certified organic burdock root extract and burdock root tea varieties to suit your needs.

Melanie’s Health & Nutrition really began with Auminay Naturals which was formerly SkinTastic Creations. This product line took root over twenty years ago as Melanie faced cancer. After becoming aware of alternative therapies she worked to change to a healthier lifestyle and learn about herbs. She developed what is now the Auminay Naturals product line by eventually learning to infuse these herbs into products that used natural ingredients to provide skin care products for a healthier lifestyle. In 2017, as a newly certified Master Herbalist, Melanie opened Melanie’s Health & Nutrition to provide a resource for the Tooele community. The Auminay products are now made in the back section of the store. Melanie and her staff love to serve the community and provide opportunities for learning, as well as products that empower people to be healthier.
