Uva Ursi is a plant that is a part of the vast compendium of European Herbalism and was an asset to the North Native Americans. Throughout the Northern Hemphisphere this plant has been loved by bears for it's easy access to the low laying fruit on a short ground crawling shrub. Indigo Herbs Uva Ursi products consist of Bearberry Powder, Bearberry Tincture and Bearberry Tea giving you the option to choose which is easiest and most effective for you. Read more below on the history and folklore of this plant.

Thought to be used since the 2nd century, Uva Ursi has a reputation in European Herbalism as being a herb with great detoxifying properties. Although the tradition of this plant is strong in Europe it is even more so in North America. The Algonkian, Cree, and Ojibwa Tribes of Native American Indians used the leathery leaves of the Uva Ursi plant for smoking. This was called 'kinnikinnick' which roughly translates as 'smoking mixture' or 'that which is mixed'. They used this as a clarifying mixture in their pipes to induce calm of mind in order to make clear decisions. Another name is 'Sagacomin' coming from the Algonkian Tribe and meaning 'smoking leaf berry'. Even though the popular name for Uva Ursi describes the bears love for the berry, the fruit is in fact not at all appetising. All the properties come exclusively from the leaves.

The botanical name Uva Ursi comes from the Latin which means 'bear'. It is an evergreen shrub that flourishes in alpine forests all over the Northern Hemisphere. It is very hardy managing to grow where other plants find it hard to survive. Taking some time to reach a respectable size Bearberry grows at ground level; it has tough oval leaves with white bell shaped flowers. After the blooms have faded the bright red perfectly round berries start to form.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

Serving:

Take 1-2 teaspoons of the herb per cup of boiling hot water. Do not exceed 2 cups of bearberry tea per day. 

Bearberry Tea is made from the very best examples of Uva Ursi leaves dried and cut for loose leaf tea. This process is generally a simple one where the leaves are harvested and selected for quality before they are dried in shade. When nearly all of the moisture has evaporated from the leaves there is another selection process before they are cut to size for loose leaf tea. The Bearberry Tea is then tested for foreign chemical profiles before being shipped.

Only take Bearberry for short periods of time and no longer than for 5 days at a time. Do not take more than the recommended dose.

Not recommended for children or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People with high blood pressure or people who suffer from Crohn disease, digestive problems, ulcers, kidney or liver disease should avoid Bearberry products.

Bearberry Uva Ursi Powder from Indigo Herbs has a long traditional use. It is recommended to take this herbal powder for no longer than 5 days as Uva Ursi is most effective during short periods. Bearberry or Bear Grape got its name from this low laying shurb being the favourite of foraging bears. 

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herbal powder. We are unable to advise you here on the benefits of our herbal products, however we do recommend you take the opportunity to research the many benefits of this herb.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Our Bearberry Powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult a Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Serving:

Take 1 to 3 grams up to twice a day for no more than 5 days at a time.

This process is generally a simple one where the leaves are harvested and selected for quality before they are dried in shade. When nearly all of the moisture has evaporated from the leaves there is another selection process before they are milled down to a whole leaf powder. This powder is then tested for foreign chemical profiles before being shipped.

Only take Bearberry for short periods of time and no longer than for 5 days at a time. Do not take more than the recommended dose.

Not recommended for children or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People with high blood pressure or people who suffer from Crohn disease, digestive problems, ulcers, kidney or liver disease should avoid Bearberry products.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Add recommended daily amount of Bearberry Tincture tincture drops to water or fruit juice. Can be added to boiling water and left to cool to evaporate alcohol.

Good to do business with you
I am impressed and grateful that my echinacea bottles come wrapped in a corrugated cardboard and no longer bubble wrap which is very bad for the environment. If you can do it Indigo then other companies should be able to follow your example. Well done you. My order arrived very quickly and I placed my order on the phone with a friendly efficient member of staff.
