Harvest the buds, the pinkwhite flowers and the leaves in July and August. An infusion of blackberry or bramble leaves taken internally is a general tonic and blood cleanser, and will help with anaemia, general debility and diarrhoea. This same mixture can be used externally on wounds, sores, burns and scalds. Chewing fresh blackberry leaves has long been used to relieve bleeding gums and general sores in the mouth. A decoction of the leaves or root applied externally will help clear up skin problems such as blemishes, blackheads and itchy scalps. Other species of Rubus like raspberries and loganberries have the same properties. Blackberries are a good source of vitamin C. In the past the bramble was a popular charm herb, used for binding spells, and for containing energy. If drunk as a herbal tea it will enhance the qualities of persistence and patience, both in love and spiritual discipline, bringing sweetness as an end result its symbolic role in the Sleeping Beauty story.
