Starwest Botanicals, Bayberry Root, Bark, 1 lb Powder
Botanical Name: Myrica cerifera
Origin: United States
Common Names: Bayberry, American bayberry, bayberry wax tree, myrtle, wax myrtle
The shrub from which we obtain bayberry root bark, which grows along the Atlantic coast of North America from the Maritime Provinces of Canada to the Florida Keys as well as swampland throughout the Southeast, is known by numerous aliases. In addition to its scientific name, myrica cerifera, it also goes by wax myrtle, candleberry, and arbre á suif, or "tallow tree." The name fits, as the berries provide a form of wax that is actually used in candlemaking.
Of greater interest to those who buy organic bulk herbs however is the bark itself. Gathered in November and early December, bayberry root bark is removed from the trunk and branches by heating the roots, which is then used to make bulk dried herbs for sale.

About Starwest Botanicals
Starwest Botanicals started as a small retail herb shop in 1975 in Sacramento, California. The company grew rapidly on the strength of our commitment to provide value through a combination of quality products, excellent customer service, and fair prices. In 1979, Starwest built its first herb mill to have better control over the processing of herbs. In 1980, the company began importing herbs from several different countries and supplying manufacturers and wholesalers, while also supporting the fledgling organic herb industry. Today, Starwest Botanicals is one of the largest suppliers of organic herbs in the United States, with 85,000 sq. ft. of modern warehouse and production space and over one million pounds of herbs and spices in stock.
