Herb of the Day: Wild Cherry Bark
Posted by TriLight Health on Oct 15th 2020
This time of year often brings along coughs and respiratory issues. Herbalists love wild cherry bark as a favorite remedy for these illnesses. It is harvested, dried and then used in teas, tinctures, extracts, and other herbal preparations. It has a pleasant flavor which means no fighting with kids to take a nasty cough medicine! The bark is also frequently converted into a resin and burned as an incense. This beautiful tree yields edible fruit which is used medicinally and for culinary purposes as well.
Traditional Herbal Uses of Wild Cherry Bark:
