Wild cherry has a long history of use by Native Americans for its wellness-supporting properties and as a food source. Adopted by folk herbalists, the bark of Prunus serotina eventually became a major ingredient in the first industrially produced cough syrups. Wild cherry bark is aromatic and astringent. It has a delightful flavor and is often incorporated into herbal formulas. Our wild cherry bark powder can be used for making syrups, liquid extracts, or tablets.
From ancient times the cherry has been associated with virginity, the red colored fruit with the enclosed seed symbolizing the uterus. Buddhism teaches that Maya, the virgin mother of Buddha, was supported by a holy cherry tree during her pregnancy. In Danish folklore, a good crop of cherries was insured by having the first ripe fruit eaten by a woman shortly after her first child was born. Many myths used cherries as symbols of both education and concealment. Wild cherry is a member of the rose family and also goes by wild black cherry. Most commonly found in Syrup formulas; however, it may be administered as a tea or extract.
