Product Details

One half ounce, cut and sifted.100% Certified USDA Organic & Kosher.

Cramp bark (viburnum opulus) indicates history of use by various cultures. Native Americans traditionally employed it for a range of ailments, including reducing inflammation, treating fluid retention, and even as a tobacco substitute. European folklore also embraced cramp bark, with its beautiful white flowers and red berries symbolizing protection and marital happiness.

Medicinally, cramp bark has been a mainstay in herbal remedies for centuries. The dried bark of the shrub is particularly valued for its cramp-reducing properties, as the name suggests. It's most used to alleviate menstrual cramps but may also provide relief from muscle spasms and discomfort during pregnancy. Some historical accounts even mention its use for kidney issues and nerve disorders.

It's been used in rituals for protection, particularly during childbirth was associated with protection and warding off evil spirits. Its bright red berries were seen as symbols of fire and used in protective charms. The viburnum's association with childbirth led to its use in fertility and pregnancy rituals, and its association with marital bliss carries over into spells for love and commitment.
