Betula Alba

Birch belongs to the birch or alder family which contains more than 40 species. The tree can grow 30 meters high and its unmistakable chracteristic is its white bark. The bark can adjust and is resisten against rough climate.




Birch is a medical plant which has a draining, diuretic and purging effect. It helps to get haric acid out of the body. That is the reason why birch is used for rheumatic complaints. Purging cures should be taken during diminishing moon because the body detoxifies more easily. Birch also strengthens the scalp as an ingredient in shampoos.
