Bayberry (Myrica cerifera) is a circulatory stimulant. It is
warming and encourages "flow" throughout the body. It dissolves excess
mucous and helps it pass from the body. Bayberry is often found in cough
and cold formulas as it breaks up mucous and contains anti-microbial
essential oils. It is excellent as a gargle for sore throats. As a
mouthwash, it supports good oral hygiene.
Bayberry is an
astringent herb, and it is helpful in cases of diarrhea and dysentery.
It is also used for excessive menstrual bleeding and uterine discharge.
