Black Poplar Dried Bark Powder

From: 6.40 



Latin Name : Populus Nigra

Poplar bark is primarily native to boggy lowland areas, river valleys, pond margins, forest margins, fields and roadsides in Europe, northwestern Africa and western Asia.

Black poplar has been used for a long time as a folks remedy. The bark is harvested from side branches or coppiced trees and dried for later use.

Black poplar bark is used as a natural dye. Always soak bark overnight before heating. Use a dye bag when dyeing wool or the bits will get stuck in the fibers. Heat slowly to below a boil, boiling may dull colours.

Poplar is used as an ingredient in herbal cough medicines. It is also used to loosen chest congestion and as a stimulant. Externally, the bark is used to treat chilblains, haemorrhoids, infected wounds and sprains.
Some people apply poplar directly to the skin for sores, bruises, cuts, pimples, external hemorrhoids, frostbite, and sunburn.



The powder can be used as a flour. This is normally mixed with other flours for making bread etc and can also be used as a thickener in soups. To make an infusion, 1-2 tablespoons of powdered aspen in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10' to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve. Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day. Add if you want honey, milk or lemon wedge for flavour.
Black Poplar seems to be safe for most people when used properly. It  contains a chemical that is very similar to aspirin. This chemical, known as salicin, may cause a reaction in people who are allergic to aspirin. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using any herb especially if you’re taking other medications or having health problems.
