    BLACKBERRY HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    Blackberry (Rubus villosus / Rubus fruticosus) is also known as Rubi Fruticosi Folium, Rubi Fruticosi Radix, Rubs affinis, Rubs Plicatus, Bramble, Black Berry, Brambleberry, Cloudberry, Thimbleberry, Dewberry, and Goutberry.

    The Blackberry is a berry that grows on small bushy vines; each berry is in a cluster of small black fruits. In Britain the same plant is usually called Bramble because of its prickly thorns, or Brambles. The plant is also known as Cloudberry in Northern Europe and known as Dewberry in the American South. Since ancient times, Greek physicians prescribed Blackberry for gout, and since the time of Christ, Blackberry leaves were chewed to treat bleeding gums. The ancient Chinese used the unripe berries to treat kidney problems, urinary incontinence and impotence. The Romans chewed the leaves for bleeding gums and drank a decoction for diarrhea. During the Middle Ages the Blackberry leaves were applied to the skin to soothe burns and scalds. Traditionally though, the most common uses were for treating diarrhea, sore throats, and wounds.

    BLACKBERRY & MAGICKAL LORE

    Blackberries are sweet darkly colored fruits that grow on bushy vines in small clusters known as drupelets. In Britain, the same plant is usually called bramble, because of its prickly thorns. The plant is also known as cloudberry (in northern Europe) and dewberry (in the American South). Blackberry brambles can become quite invasive if left to their own devices.

    The flowers and fruit of the Blackberry have long been with Magickal Powers. Many earth-based and Wiccan religions claim that blackberry leaves can help return evil to enemies that sent it, and may also help remove evil spirits from your home. Blackberry was believed to protect from "evil runes" and was used to cure snakebites. Merely sitting under a Blackberry bush was considered sufficient to cure rheumatism and boils. In parts of England children with hernias were pushed under the arches the vines made for a magical cure.

    Superstition in the UK holds that Blackberries should not be picked after the 15th of September as the Devil has claimed them. The Devil has left a mark on the leaves. Another similar superstition in the United Kingdom holds that blackberries should not be picked after Michaelmass (September 29th) as the devil has claimed them, having left a mark on the leaves by urinating on them. There is some value behind this legend as after this date wetter and cooler weather often allows the fruit to become infected by various molds such as Botryotinia which give the fruit an unpleasant look and possible toxicity.
