( Quercus alba )
blood regulating, haemostatic, antibacterial, vulnerary.
The bark of the white and other
oaks is high in calcium and tannis which make it useful for any condition of
flaccidity and flux, such as diarrhoea, worms, leucorrhoea, bleeding. It
tightens and strengthens any tissue, especially bone, and promotes healing
of wounds. Acorns - gathered, roasted and ground - make and excellent coffee
substitute. Walnut leaves have like properties.
