Buckthorn Bark (alder bark) comes from the wild or from cultivations in riparian forests in Eastern Europe

The dried whole or ground bark of the trunks and branches are used. The bark is nearly inodorous; its taste is pleasant, sweetish and slightly bitter.

Tonic, laxative, cathartic. It is used as a gentle purgative in cases of chronic constipation

The bark and leaves of the Alder Buckthorn yield a yellow dye much used in Russia; when mixed with salts of iron it turns black.
