Birch Leaf is an herbal medicine used to increase urinary output (more urine), for urinary tract infections, digestive tract, edema and kidney stones. In folk medicine, birch is in use against arthritis and rheumatism and against loss of hair and skin rashes. It promotes slight sweating and is mildly diuretic. It is used for cystitis or other inflammations of the urinary tract, rheumatic pain, arthritis, painful and sore joints. It is also used as a spring tonic.
Birch Bark Tea - This herb is also called cherry birch, sweet birch, and white birch. The word birch is said to come from the Sanskrit bhurga meaning "tree whose bark is written on." Birches have long symbolized the return of spring, and several species are found throughout cooler parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Coleridge called the birch "Lady of the Woods." The oil in birch tea is believed to purify the blood, relieve rheumatism, and expel worms. A standard infusion is used to treat skin complaints, including stubborn cases of acne, itching, and eczema.
Parts Used for Tea: Leaves, twigs, and bark.
