Native to southern Canada and southeastern USA; it now grows also in Russia and parts of Eastern Europe.

Aromatic Scent: Birch Sweet has a sweet, sharp, camphoraceous scent that is very fresh and similar to Wintergreen.

Common Uses: The chemical constituents in Sweet Birch are credited with being analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-pryetic, anti-rheumatic, antiseptic, astringent, depurative, diuretic and tonic.
