Herb of The Month

We’re here to talk about berries, y’all.

Burgundy smears stain our hands and sidewalks as mulberries litter the city-streets of our beloved Burque.
Cherries (not technically a berry, we know, but bear with us) burst with deep magenta and the vibration of joy. Berries are rich in antioxidants and electrolytes to fulfill the body’s needs for nourishment.

They are beneficial for heart health and digestive regulation as well as balancing hormones and preventing cancerous cells from proliferating in the body.
Additionally, increased sun exposure (done in moderation) allows us to absorb higher amounts of nutrients.

Good stuff, eh?

One of our favourite berries, however, hails for more northerly climates – Bilberry (Vaccinium Myrtillus). Commonly found in European, Chinese medicine, and Pacific Northwestern herbalism, Bilberry is used to treat a multitude of ailments. It is, however, found to be most effective for circulation, blood sugar regulation, and inflammatory conditions. It is used as a treatment for many aspects of Diabetes – from blood sugar regulation, to increased circulation, to protecting vision in some more severe cases.
