Celebration Herbals Billberry Leaf Tea
Various species of Bilberry grow throughout cooler areas of North America and eastern Europe in acidic, open areas. This hearty plant loves barren terrain and looks and tastes much like common low-bush blueberries. Bilberry is a low deciduous bush with small, bright green, shortly-stalked oval leaves with serrated edges.
Bilberry has been recognized for its medicinal effects since the 12th century when women used the berries to promote good health. The leaves of non-flowering plants are used medicinally.
