The blackberry plant, a perennial shrub endemic to every continent except Australia and Antarctica, produces blackberry leaves, that have been used curatively, since ancient times, especially throughout Europe and Asia.

Today, we know for a fact it is rich in vitamin C and tannins which can boost immunity and heal wounds. When made into a tea, it can help decrease heavy menstrual flow, or relieve diarrhea and cramping, and as a gargle and mouthwash, it can soothe inflammation in the mouth and throat. To treat inflamed or oozing rashes, one could make a decoction of gently boiled blackberry leaves and using a soaked clean cloth in the affected area. 

Recommended Dosage
1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
When herbs are used for a long period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example, if you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause, if it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause, etc. That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.

Notes
◉ Herbs and botanicals should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve their flavor and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
