Buckthorn Bark (Rhamnus frangula)Latin Name: Rhamnus frangula
Common Names: Buckthorn Bark
Buckthorn Bark is often referred to as alder buckthorn; botanists know it by its scientific name, Rhamnus frangula. Although included in the category of bulk herbs for sale, buckthorn bark is really from the outer skin of a tree, or the bark - something that true herbs (which are perennials) lack.
Rhamnus frangula, or buckthorn bark, has laxative properties. In Europe, some cosmetics companies have recently taken to using an extract of cut Rhamnus frangula bark as an ingredient for sunblock.
Although classified as a natural herb and offered by Starwest Botanicals in as pure a form as possible, we would be remiss in our duties toward our customers if we did not mention possible side effects. Dried herbs often require as much caution as prescription drugs and can have side effects and interactions as well.
This said, it is important to note that improperly prepared, buckthorn bark can cause vomiting and intestinal spasms. The bark of dried Rhamnus frangula must be allowed to age for a period of no less than twelve months. It should not be used by women who are pregnant, patients suffering from either Crohns Disease or colitis, or young children.
As one of the country's leading bulk herbs suppliers, Starwest Botanicals recommends that one consult with a professional herbalist and/or naturopathic doctor before beginning a regimen using any of our wholesale organic herbs. We will also be glad to answer questions you may have regarding our herbs and spices in bulk.
Warning: This product contains Buckthorn Bark (Rhamnus frangula). Read and follow directions carefully.
