Product Description



Prunus serotina, commonly called black cherry, wild cherry, rum cherry, or mountain black cherry, is a deciduous woody plant species belonging to the genus Prunus.

Black cherry is a medium-sized, fast-growing forest tree growing to a height of 50-80 feet.

The species is widespread and common in North America and South America. Prunus serotina was widely introduced into Western and Central Europe as an ornamental tree in the mid 20th century, where it has become locally naturalized. It has acted as an invasive species there, negatively affecting forest community biodiversity and regeneration.


Medicinal Action and Uses

Expectorant - Wild black cherry is a very effective herbal cough remedy. The main use of the bark is to still irritated, nagging coughs. It is used in many commercial cough products for the flavour as well as the sedative, expectorant, drying, and cough-suppressing effects it possesses.

Sedative - The Bark possesses mild sedative effects.

Stomachic - It is also used to ease indigestion and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, especially when they occur from a nervous origin.
