The ever popular Buckthorn Bark is revered by most herbalists for it versatility and plant power! The Buckthorn tree, Rhamnus frangula, is a multi-branched shrub that can grow up to 12 feet producing black shiny Buckthorn berries, about the size of a pea, surrounded by small greenish-yellow flowers, and small green leaves. However, it’s the smooth blackish-brown bark that’s the star of the show! The bark is collected, dried, then cut and sifted for your convenience.
Native to North Africa, Europe, and North Asia, Buckthorn has a long history with many civilizations, who used the herb for many personal care applications in their daily lives. Many ancient medical writings references the herb, which also has a bit for controversial mystery surrounding it. Today, the bark can potentially be used many industrial and personal care products, to the benefits of its makers and users!
