1 Lb Cramp Bark cut


Native to Europe and Asia, Cramp Bark (Viburnum Opulus) is also known by the names of Guelder Rose, Water Elder, European Cranberry bush, and snowball tree. This causes some confusion occasionally, as it is not really a variety of Rose, Elder, or Cranberry. Growing most commonly as an ornamental plant and as part of hedgerows, it is also revered for its spiritual symbolism in Ukranian lore. With roots in Slavic paganism, it is associated with the birth of the Universe, with the berries found on the plant often tied in to the "Fire Trinity, or the Sun, Moon, and Stars. The common name, Cramp Bark, is however born of the most common practice of the herbalists who revere it: it is used to help alleviate menstrual cramping. Further, many herbalists will prescribe it to aid with post partum discomfort ad in preventing miscarriages. Its muscle relaxant qualities have also left it being explored for the treatment of asthma and some varieties of arthritis. This is a 1 lb packet of cut Cramp Bark.
