Dandelion is one of those super foods that we overlook every day in our yards! Ok, maybe don’t go eat the dandelion in your yard, but Organic Dandelion is one of the best plants you can use in your salads, smoothies, juices and skincare!
Organic Dandelion is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, helps detox skin and hair, can help reduce acne, helps control sebaceous gland activity, super high in Vitamins A, C and E, calms rosacea, eczema and rashes….so many things!
Organic Dandelion extract is also great to use in salves and bath soaks designed to help reduce muscle and joint pain. Organic Dandelion is said to have natural anti-inflammatory properties and helps in relieving pain in joints and muscles. This means Organic Dandelion is an excellent addition to bath soaks, bath bombs, foot soaks, foot scrubs, CBD salves, topical Aloe Gel products, and lotions.
Organic Dandelion extract makes a great addition to any facial care line. The naturally high vitamins A, C and E which make it highly beneficial to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and to help brighten and smooth the skin. Vitamin C is a key component to long-term healthy skin and to evening out skin-tone and fading dark spots.
Organic Dandelion is also excellent for hair care products. Dandelion has Vitamins A, C and E which are skin and hair beneficial, but it also contains B-complex vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium and biotin, all which help stimulate hair growth.
When I was a kid and got bug bites, my mom would always have me rub the dandelion flower on the bite to help soothe it. It always worked, and it left a pretty little yellow smudge on my skin. Using Organic Dandelion extract in your skin-soothing treatments will also help calm itchy bug bites. You could make a great bug repellant product using Aloe Gel Base, Organic Dandelion extract, Organic Neem Oil (very small amount as it is powerful!), Rosemary Seed Extract, Clove Leaf Essential Oil, Citronella Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential oil and Peppermint Essential Oil.
Facial steaming products are becoming very popular and these dried Organic Dandelion Root would make a great facial steamer. If you haven’t seen them, facial steaming products are dried ingredients that a customer sprinkles into hot, steamy water in a bowl. Then they place their face directly over the bowl and allow their skin and face to absorb the fragrant steam. Oftentimes it is recommended to put a towel draped over the back of the head to keep the steam from escaping. Adding ingredients such as Organic Arnica, Organic Calendula, Organic Lavender Buds, Organic Comfrey, and Organic Aloe would make a powerful herbal blend. Other ingredients that are great to add are fresh lemons, some salt such as our Fine Dead Sea Salt, Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate), Citric Acid, then essential oils with facial care properties such as Frankincense Carterii, Helichrysum, Egyptian Geranium, Organic Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, Holy Basil, Manuka….you get the idea. If you’re creating a dry facial steam product, you will add your liquid products (essential oils, carrier oils) to the salts, then add the pre-scented salts to your other dry ingredients. Don’t try to scent the dried herbs; those smell lovely just on their own.
