Bayberry is native to the eastern United States. It is the root bark that is primarily used as medicine, but the leaves, fruits and a wax extracted from the fruits can also be used. Bayberry contains triterpenes (such as taraxerol, taraxeron and myrikadiol), flavonoids (myricitrin), tannins, phenols, resins and rubber substances. It is considered an astringent and antibacterial herb and has been used traditionally as a treatment for headaches, a decongestant for colds, flu, cough, throat infections and sinusitis. Experience its antibacterial action in our Oil Pulling Oil – refreshing mint and Oil Pulling Oil – spiced cinnamon.
