Description: Our Cascara Sagrada tincture is an infused alcoholic solution, at a ratio of 1:3 (25% alcohol). A small, deciduous tree growing 4-5 metres in height, native to North America. Its stems are covered with reddish-brown bark. The leaves are dark green, elliptic to oblong-ovate with prominent veins and toothed margins. Leaves are rounded at the base with somewhat hairy underneath. Short-stemmed clusters of small, greenish-white flowers grow from the upper leaf axils.
Brief History: In the early late 18th and early 19th century the bark of cascara sagrada became popular among pioneer settlers of North America. The settlers were taught its use by native American tribes from the West Coast of America; it was used primarily in cases of constipation and as a violent purgative. By 1877 the herb was included in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia and by 1883 it began to be used in Europe for the same purpose.
SUGGESTED USEIn the food industry extracts of the bark are used as food flavouring. No other non-medicinal uses are known for this herb.
