Bayberry – Myrica cerifera

This plant originates from North America is also known as wax myrtle, waxberry, candleberry and Southern bayberry.

It is an astringent, emetic and anti-catarrhal herb, which can causes vomiting when taken internally in large doses but a special bayberry extract fight cellulite effectively - and this molecule has now been patented.


Bayberry is a small shrub or tree, with oblanceolate, shiny or resinous leaves, that are dotted on both sides. The leaves give off a strong fragrance when rubbed. The herb bears unisex green to yellow flowers, without a calyx or corolla and the fruit appears in groups of round berries with black grains, encrusted with green or white green wax.

History of bayberry bayberry removes cellulite myriciline prevents cellulite fat cells in skin

The Choctaw Indians used Bayberry, making an infusion of the leaves, which they drank to relieve fever. As the herb is indigenous to America, the early colonists also discovered the herb, but they didn't use it medicinally. They rather boiled the fruit, which caused the wax on the berries to separate from the skin. The wax then rose to the surface of the boiling water and was scooped off to make fragrant candles that do not smoke after snuffing (giving rise to the name wax myrtle and candleberry). The wax differs from beeswax and is more brittle.

Colonists in Louisiana later found that drinking bayberry wax mixed with hot water helped to treat violent cases of dysentery.

The root bark is dried and powdered and is most commonly used in a tincture or infusion to treat fevers, colds, flu, excessive mucus and heavy menstruation. It is reported to help clear up female discharge, diarrhea, jaundice and scrofula (a form of tuberculosis affecting the lymph nodes).

Bayberry contains myricitrin, which has an anti-biotic effect, giving support to the belief that it helps with fevers, diarrhea and dysentery.

The wax, when boiled in water and taken as a tea, is considered to be a cure for severe dysentery and to help heal internal ulceration.

An infusion of bayberry root bark in water is suggested as an excellent wash and gargle for sore or inflamed gums and throat. This decoction is also considered to be great to use as a douche.


Decoction: Boil 0.6 – 2.0 grams of powdered root bark in a pint of water for 10 to 15 minutes. Let it stand and cool. Drink up to 2 cups a day, or use as a wash or gargle.

The taste of the decoction is terribly bitter and dries out the mouth; for this reason it may be more palatable to use a tincture, which should be available from any good health shop.

The root powder is peppery and is sternutatory (causes sneezing) and also encourages coughing, but the root powder is normally used as a poultice to help heal ulcers and is traditionally recommended as a treatment for varicose veins.

The wax makes a fragrant soothing shaving lather and is used as sealing wax and to make candles.

Herbal extracts have become very hi-tech – and bayberry is a shining example of this fact.
