White Oak was for centuries, vital in wooden ship construction, from the English ships made from the English Oaks that brought our forefathers to this continent to the gun deck of the famous frigate Constitution and to the keels of World War II minesweepers and patrol boats.
The North American colonists also used the American Oak for barrel making because the wood when wet, swells up, seals the barrel enabling it to hold liquids, including the all-important rum. Rum at that time, represented our foreign trade and unfortunately the slave trade was tied to Rum.
Medicinally, White Oak Bark is the classic example of an astringent. Due to its high calcium and tannins content, it acts by precipitating the tissue protein to tighten them. For externally use, boil or steam the bark and/or the leaves and apply them over the area needing treatment to relieve bruises, injuries, varicosities, swollen tissues and bleeding. This also helps strengthen capillaries.
