Prickly Ash Bark, Fluid Extract
About the Plant: The prickly ash can grow to 25 feet high. In the spring the tree bears small, fragrant, yellow-green flowers before the leaves appear. These are followed by round, red berries. The berries are gathered in the late summer. The bark is stripped from the stems and gathered in the spring.
Uses: Native American Indians chewed prickly ash bark for toothache. Traditionally, it has also been used for rheumatism and circulatory problems. Today, herbalists use prickly ash bark as a stimulant for the central nervous system and general circulation. It is also used to improve digestion and treat colic and stomach cramps.
