The birch is a soft-wood tree native to cold, northerly climates. The name is a very ancient one, probably derived from the Sanskrit bhurga, meaning "tree whose bark is written upon." This herb is typically used as a poultice or made into an infusion. Birch bark easily peels from the tree, but is slow to decay. Birch bark is strong and water resistant, almost like cardboard in its pliability, and can therefore be bent, cut, or even sewn. The powdered bark can be used to make topical skin products, or made into infusions or extracts.
