About: Birch Bark has been used for medicinally for centuries. Birch Bark contains betulin and betulinic acid, which are powerful anti-inflammatory agents. Traditionally, Birch Bark is used to relieve headaches, reduces fevers, eliminates excess water, thins the blood and combats urinary tract infections. The only active ingredient in Aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid, was originally derived from the bark of willow, birch and poplar trees. It is the natural forerunner of synthetic aspirin and has been invaluable for relieving headaches and general overall pain. Traditional healers also use Birch Bark to reduce the inflammation of rheumatism, arthritis, edema, and gout. Diuretic, anti-inflammatory, mild pain relief. (and it's delicious!)
