OVERVIEW:

Native to the northern hemisphere's temperate and sub-arctic zones, Birch bark lends a camphor-like flavor to teas and other beverages. It has a wide variety of medicinal applications. Birch contains salicylate, a natural pain reliever. 

 

It's astringent, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties support traditional uses in skin disorders such as eczema. Birch bark can be made into an excellent tonic and detoxifier, mainly working on the urinary system or for relief from dysentery. Birch is one of the most useful of trees as well as one of the most graceful, no wonder it is also known as the Giving Tree.
