Product Details

Prickly ash bark is commonly used for the following purposes:

  1. Circulation support: Prickly ash bark is often used to support circulation and promote healthy blood flow. It is believed to have vasodilatory properties, meaning it can help dilate blood vessels and improve circulation. It may be used to alleviate symptoms of poor circulation, such as cold hands and feet, and may also be used to support overall cardiovascular health.

  2. Digestive aid: Prickly ash bark is considered a bitter herb and is used to support digestive health. It may help stimulate digestive secretions, including saliva, stomach acid, and bile, which can aid in the digestion of food. It is often used to improve appetite, relieve indigestion, and alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort, such as bloating and gas.

  3. Toothache relief: Prickly ash bark has traditionally been used as a natural remedy for toothache pain. Its numbing and analgesic properties may help provide temporary relief from toothaches and gum pain. It is often used topically as a mouthwash or applied directly to the affected area.

  4. Joint and muscle support: Prickly ash bark is sometimes used to support joint and muscle health. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, which may help reduce inflammation and relieve pain associated with conditions such as arthritis or muscle strains.

  5. Traditional uses: Prickly ash bark has a history of traditional use for various other purposes, including as a diaphoretic (to promote sweating), to alleviate menstrual discomfort, and as a general tonic to support overall well-being. However, scientific research on these specific uses is limited, and further studies are needed to validate these claims.
