Useful properties of bird cherry - from flowers to bark
HEALING POWER OF BIRD
Where bird cherry grows, the air is always clean and healthy. The fact is that during flowering, the plant releases a huge amount of phytoncides that inhibit microbes. No wonder folk healers advise standing at least half an hour at the bird cherry tree to scare away the emerging ailment.
In our garden, bird cherry has been growing for 10 years. We dug up a two-meter plant in April in an abandoned area and transplanted. And after three seasons, the bird cherry gave the first berries. Last summer we collected more than 20 kg. The tree does not require special care. We remove the growth. We water in dry weather. We carry out sanitary pruning in early spring. But there is a caveat: for cross-pollination, at least one more bird cherry tree should grow near the site.
For medicinal purposes, berries, flowers, leaves and bark of bird cherry are used.
In case of intestinal disorders, in childhood, our grandmother prepared bird cherry broth. Crushed dry berries were poured in a saucepan with warm water (1:10) and put under a lid in a water bath for 30 minutes. She insisted for another half an hour, filtered. They drank 120-130 ml three times a day half an hour before meals.
With colds, coughs, as well as cystitis, a decoction of bird cherry bark helps. 1 tbsp dry raw materials pour 1 tbsp. hot water, boil for 10 minutes, leave for 3 hours, strain and drink 1 tsp. 3-4 times a day before meals. Lotions with this decoction relieve inflammation in conjunctivitis.
A cup of freshly brewed tea from crushed dry cherries (2 tablespoons per 0 liters of boiling water) on a winter morning will not only warm, but also invigorate, energize, add strength. Experts advise harvesting the bark in early spring before the tree begins to bloom, since at this time it contains the maximum amount of nutrients. The flowers should be harvested as soon as they open, the leaves in June, and the fruits when fully ripe.
After drying, we grind the berries with our hands, freeing them from the stalks and removing the twigs. We fall asleep in a bag made of natural fabric. By the way, dried bird cherry does not lose its beneficial properties for 5 years. Fruits often become grayish after two or three years of storage, but do not worry: this is the sugar contained in them coming out.
IF FRESH BIRD LEAVES APPLY TO THE BRUSHED PLACE, THEY RELIEF THE PAIN AND REDUCE THE Swelling.
