Strawberry leaf is obtained from the common garden strawberry plant grown for its fruit. Many people don’t realize that the leaf of the plant can also be harvested and, like the fruit, is also an excellent source of vitamin C, tannins, minerals and antioxidants.

Strawberry leaf, fresh or dried, lends a mild, slightly fruity flavor to tea blends. The leaf can also be used to prepare infused oils, salves and ointments for the skin.

strawberry leaf

Wild strawberry, also known as woodland strawberry and Alpine strawberry, is a perennial plant in the rose family that is native to Europe and Asia. In addition to producing edible fruit, the fresh or dried leaf is an excellent tea herb.

Because strawberry leaves contain astringent compounds, strong infusions also have topical applications. They may be used as a facial wash or final hair rinse. Both water and oil infusions may be used to make soaps, salves, ointments and lotions.
