I am considering making a tincture for the 1st time from Sweet Gum balls but I would like to ask a couple questions. Ive searched the forum but havent found the answers to my questions.

1. Ive heard from a friend it is a good pain formula as well as cold and flu formula. Is this true?

2. Is it better to chop the green sweet gum balls or to crush them? Or does it even make a difference?

3. Are the bark and/or leaves of the Sweet Gum medicinal?

Thanks!
Paula

Happy Herbing!

Could you post a picture of what you're calling "sweet gum balls"?
