Birch bark is known to be a natural pain reliever and a blood cleanser. Used internally or externally, birch bark assists with rheumatoid arthritis, eases muscle pain, and tonifies the whole body. Its properties are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. The outer and inner bark are combined to prepare a cup of tonifying birch bark tisane. The taste is almost cinnamon-like. For bark tisanes, it's best to pulverize the desired quantity of plant material in a coffee grinder or food processor, then prepare the infusion, and strain the liquid through a coffee filter. Bark tisanes tend to be strong infusions. You can add a strong birch bark infusion to a relaxing bath. Lovely birch bark indeed.
Birch bark is rich in betulin, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins. We wild-harvest birch bark in early spring and late fall in the wilderness of northern Saskatchewan.
The wild tisanes, harvested from Love, SK, are gently dried with no additives or preservatives. Each one has it's own natural health benefit. Some varities are seasonal, limited quantities available.
