Overview

Overview Information

Burning bush is a plant. People use the leaves and roots to make medicine.

Burning bush is used for digestive tract disorders including cramps, stomach problems, and worms in the intestines. It is also used for urinary tract and genital tract disorders.

Women take burning bush to start menstruation, as birth control, and to help force out the placenta after childbirth.

Other uses include treating epilepsy, spasms, fluid retention, and baldness; liver disease (hepatitis); and use as a stimulant or tonic.

Some people apply burning bush directly to the affected area (topically) for treating skin disorders such as wounds, eczema, bacterial infection (impetigo), swelling (inflammation), and an infection (scabies) caused by tiny lice-like insects; as well as for painful conditions such as joint pain caused by arthritis or rheumatism. Other topical uses include treatment of fever; excessive uterine bleeding; use as a sedative for adults and children; and use as a tonic.

Don’t confuse this plant with wahoo, which is also referred to as burning bush. One of the ways to tell the difference is that this burning bush has a distinctive lemon or cinnamon scent, and its oil burns easily.
