Cherry Bark, Wild (Dried)

Wild cherry (Prunus serotina), otherwise known as black cherry, is a native tree of North America and a common herbal remedy for coughs and congestion. Wild cherry bark soothes and tones the respiratory tract, loosens phlegm in the throat and chest, and aids in all types of coughs, including whooping and spasmodic cough (Kloss, 1939). It is a slight sedative, expectorant, demulcent (soothing to irritated tissues), and calms the respiratory nerves (Hoffman, 2003). Wild cherry bark syrup is soothing and restorative for all respiratory ailments. It can also be a tasty remedy that even your child will love!
