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.
Alder Buckthorn, Glossy Buckthorn
Store in a sealed container and in a cool, dry place
