Hawthorn is a common hedgerow plant in Europe known for its deep, red berries and sharp thorns. Hawthorn has a long history of use in traditional Western herbalism and is well-loved for its affinity for the heart. The red berries of Crataegus monogyna have been an ingredient in jams, wines, cordials, and candies for centuries. A member of the rose family, Hawthorn is a large shrub covered in sharp thorns. The berries are picked fully ripe in autumn before the first frost. Our hawthorn powder is ground from organic Crataegus monogyna berries. Hawthorn berry powder can be encapsulated, tinctured, or infused.
Hawthorn leaf, flower, and berry have been praised over the centuries for their heart elevating properties. Believed to uplift and strengthen both the physical and emotional heart, hawthorn, as it supports healthy cardiovascular function, was also revered for ceremonial and spiritual purposes.
