Rubus plicatus
(R. fruticosus) Blackberry has a long history of use as a medicinal herb. The Greek physician Hippocrates soaked the leaves in white wine for difficult childbirth and to apply on wounds. The leaves and roots are strong astringents and are excellent for the treatment of dysentery, diarrhea, hemorrhoids and cystitus. The roots are the more astringent of the two parts used. A gargle made by boiling the leaves makes a good mouthwash and is effective for sore throat, mouth ulcers, gum inflammation and thrush. A poultice of the leaves can be applied to skin for ulcers, fungal infections and abscesses. Studies have shown that the plant is a potent antibacterial, and that the leaves are antidiabetic and can be used for the management of diabetes mellitus.
