Herbal Tidbit—Wild Cherry

August 15, 2008

Have you ever wondered why many throat drops, sprays, and syrups come in cherry flavor? The fruit and bark of the Wild Cherry Tree have been used for centuries to make soothing and healing throat remedies. Every spring, Wild Cherry Trees are loaded down with tiny berries, making the trees take on a maroon color. When the berries are ripe, they stain roadways they fall on. Wild Cherries are easy to harvest by putting a ground cover under the tree, then shaking the branches. Mom makes a Cherry tonic every year for Dad’s speaking voice. It tastes great! The next time you go to the library, find an Herb Book that will tell you more, or you can check out Bulk Herb Store’s website for a fantastic book called Practical Herbalism. or 1-877-278-4257
