Birch leaf is the common name for the leaves of the tree Betula pendula Roth and/or Betula pubescens Ehrh. or hybrids of both species.
The leaves for medicinal use are obtained either from trees that have been cultivated or found in the wild.
Birch has a white, papery bark and the leaves are simply, alternate, and wedge shaped with a pleasant aroma but a bitter taste.
Birch leaf has a history of use for its healthful qualities in traditional herbal practices.
Birch trees have a strong connection with the celebration of Beltane. This may be due to the fact that birch trees are among the first to come into leaf, and therefore would have made an obvious choice as a representation of spring.
