what else you should know

powdered black haw bark

Black haw is known by many common names, including Guelder Rose, Red Elder, American Sloe, Stagbush and Sweet Viburnum. Note, however, that other species of Viburnum may also be erroneously referred to as black haw.

For centuries, the dried bark of this shrub has been used by Native Americans of the central and eastern U.S. and Canada, including the Iroquois, Ojibwa, Meskwaki and Catawba. The herb was also popular with the 19th century American Eclectic Physicians. One notable graduate of the Eclectic Medical College of New York, W. R. Hayden, combined black haw with cramp bark to produce Hayden’s Viburnum Compound, which was marketed as a women’s uterine tonic from 1860 until the mid-1930s.
