Prickly Ash Bark Tea Bag
Botanical Name: Xanthoxylum fraxineum
Pirckly ash is an aromatic shrub or small tree native to central and eastern portions of the United States and Canada.
The bark possesses a moderate quantity of relaxing power, and acts rather promptly and diffusively; and leaves behind a warm impression, with an acceleration of the capillaries and smaller arterial circulation.
The circulation, skin, salivary glands, and lymphatic system feel most of its influence; the serous and mucous tissues, and the kidneys, also being acted on. It is much more pungent and heating than zingiber, and much less so than capsicum; yet it is suited only to languid conditions, and should not be employed when the stomach is irritable.
It increases the flow of saliva quite actively, and is excellent in dryness of the mouth and throat.
