A well known herb that gives us a powerful herbal remedy other than lovely juicy berries. It is largely used to make a very effective tea for soothing flu symptoms and reduce the aches and pains that come with it.
It is astringent and so useful to relieve diarrhoea and to strengthening the uterus prior to childbirth. It can be used as gargle to soothe sore throats and as mouthwash for mouth ulcers and gum problems.
Raspberries leaves that grow in the wild have also high content of salvestrols, a cancer-fighting chemical. It also contains calcium, iron, and manganese.
