Details & Ingredients

PRODUCT FEATURES


We prepare Dandelion extract from fresh (never dried) whole Certified Organic Taraxacum officinale plants (root, leaf and flower) grown on our own farms in southern Oregon. The plants are grown in neat rows, harvested each spring and often have taproots over a foot in length. To assure optimal extraction of the herb’s bioactive compounds, the plants are hand-harvested while in full flower and then promptly extracted while still fresh and succulent.
The herb is extracted in small batches with Certified Organic cane alcohol for potency and to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant. We assure herb identity via macroscopic and organoleptic analysis, then confirm it through methods such as HPTLC fingerprinting specific to each herb. Our liquid extracts are easily dispensed, taken in liquid form and added to water or other liquid.

Dandelion

Dandelion is a perennial plant with numerous sessile leaves that are arranged in a basal rosette.2 The leaves have a smooth surface and unequally toothed lobes.2 The hairless, hollow and unbranched stem grows from the center of the rosette coming from the root, making it a scape. 2,6,7,8 The stem is taller than the leaves at about five to six inches in height.2,6,7 The plant has terminal golden-yellow composite corolla consisting of ray and disc flowers at the tip of the stem.2 The flower bases are covered with double involucre bracts, with the outer sepals facing down towards the ground.2,8 The three to five inch long, fleshy taproot has a tan to brown dull skin with a white to yellowish interior that shows circular milk-vessels with radiating lines in cross-sections.2

The entire plant exudes a milky juice (latex) when the epidermis is disturbed or wounded.2,11 The plant’s fruits are greenish-brown spindle-shaped achenes.6 The seeds are oblongly shaped with ribs and a threadlike beak at the apex that is covered with silky, white haired pappus for easy wind dispersal.2 The pappus are positioned in a globular head that are approximately two inches in diameter.2
