Oak has an affinity for the mouth and gums, wounds, burns and cuts.

May be helpful as a tea for loose bowels. White Oak Bark can be used in baths, washes, infusions and tinctures.

Description

Recommended Dosage
◉ 1 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
◉ When herbs are used for an extended period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example:
– If you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause.
– If it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause.
That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.

Notes
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry place- to preserve the flavor, texture, and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
