While contemporary herbalists primarily endorse its efficacy in addressing coughs and providing respiratory support, its versatility lends itself to various other medicinal applications.
To prepare this syrup, the bark of wild cherry trees was carefully harvested, often during the winter months when the tree’s medicinal properties were most concentrated. The bark was then simmered and steeped to extract its beneficial compounds.
