Larix decidua

Larch Tree is a mountain tree, growing to 45m by 15m. The turpentine obtained from the resin is antiseptic, balsamic, diuretic, haemostatic, rubefacient and vermifuge. It is a valuable remedy in the treatment of kidney, bladder and rheumatic affections, and also in diseases of the mucous membranes and the treatment of respiratory complaints. It has been used as a remedy for blood pressure problems; bronchitis; colds; cough; fever; rheumatism; sore throat; tendency to infection; etc. The bark, stripped of its outer layer, is astringent, balsamic, diuretic, expectorant, stimulant and vulnerary. Its main application is as an expectorant in chronic bronchitis and has also been given internally in the treatment of haemorrhage and cystitis. A cold extract of the bark is used as a laxative. As an external application, it is useful in the treatment of chronic eczema and psoriasis. It is found that the powdered bark can be used on purulent and difficult wounds to promote their healing.

Some of the Larch species contain ‘Arabinogalactan’ which has been reported to stimulate the immune system, to exhibit anti-inflammatory actions, and may enhance vascular permeability. Larchwood possesses astringent and diuretic actions. Its antiseptic actions may be useful in treating cystitis, respiratory problems, and wounds.
