English Alder

Posted on


Alnus glutinosa



The English Alder tree grows in Northern Europe, Western Asia and North Africa. The bark is used in herbal remedies for its astringent and toning properties.


A decoction can be made from alder bark and used to soothe swellings and inflammation. The decoction can also be used as a gargle for sore throats and as a mouthwash. For tired and aching feet, make sufficient to fill a small basin and use as a footbath.
