What is Eucommia Bark?
Commonly known as the gutta-percha or hardy rubber tree, Eucommmia bark is the grooved, gray bark of the Eucommia ulmoides tree. It is also called Du Zhong, which s the Chinese name of Eucommia bark. This name specifically refers to an old Taoist monk who was believed to be immortal, indicating that Eucommia bark provides good health, long life, and vitality. The Eucommia ulmoides tree is part of the rubber family. It is native to the mountain regions of China. The tree usually grows to around 50 ft in height. Small bark patches are harvested from trees that are at least a decade old from late summer to early autumn.
While the outer bark is carefully peeled away, the smoother, inner bark is moderately dried. The inner bark contains a pure white, elastic latex. It is said to carry the compounds accounting for Eucommia bark’s several healing properties. On the other hand, older and thicker inner bark with notably more latex is considered twice as desirable for herbalists to use compared to younger, thinner bark.
Traditionally, only the Eucommia ulmoides bark was used for healing purposes. However, research in the late 1990s indicated that the leaves had potential healing properties, too. The green leaves are narrow, pointed, and shiny. The flowers are small and aren’t used for healing.
