Organic Birch Leaf, c/s (Betula pendula)
Botanical Name: Betula pendula
Common Names: White Birch, silver birch, weeping birch
Betula pendula is a soft-wooded tree native to the northern hemisphere. Birch has a white, papery bark and the leaves are simply, alternate, and wedge shaped with a pleasant aroma but a bitter taste. Birch leaf has a history of use for its healthful qualities in traditional herbal practices. Birch trees have a strong connection with the celebration of Beltane. This may be due to the fact that birch trees are among the first to come into leaf, and therefore would have made an obvious choice as a representation of spring. The leaves can be brewed as tea, infused in oil, and utilized in extract making.
