Plant Description: Hawthorne is a small, thorny tree or shrub that grows to a height of 30 feet and lives for many years. Native to the Mediterranean region including North Africa and all of Europe and central Asia, Hawthorne can also now be found in many areas of North America. Each blossom possesses a single seed-vessel which produces brilliant red clusters of berries. These berries are rich in flavonoids and proanthocyanidins. The trunk, branches, and stems are very hard wood, and the bark, which is white, contains the alkaloid Crataegin, isolated in greyish-white crystals, and bitter to the taste. Formerly, the timber and root wood was used for making small articles such as combs and boxes. The wood has a fine grain and takes a beautiful polish.

Use: 10-30 drops in water or juice, 2-3 times daily or as needed. Shake well before using.

Cautions & Interactions: Keep out of reach of children.
