Fermenting the blackberry leaves enhances their flavor and therapeutic effect. To ferment, crush slightly wilted blackberry leaves with a rolling pin. Wrap the leaves in a damp cloth and hang them in a warm place. After two or their days, the leaves will exude a rose-like scent. At this point, remove the leaves from the cloth and let them dry before using.

Increasing the Tea's Medicinal Value

Boiling down the leaves to make a decoction releases many more tannins than when the tea is made by infusion. This means that boiling the blackberry leaves produces a much more medicinally effective tea. Drink it to combat diarrhea, decrease heavy menstrual flow and treat inflammations of the mouth and throat.

Chewing fresh blackberry leaves can help canker sores and inflamed gums. The action releases the astringent tannins, which heal and soothe, and vitamin C, which is essential for gum health.

Medicinal Uses for Sore Throat Pain

Blackberry-leaf tea is suitable as a gargle and mouthwash for inflammation of the mouth and throat when you have a cold. When you first notice a sore throat, you can help keep it from worsening by gargling with blackberry tea right away. To supplement the effect, drink 2-3 cups of tea daily.

Medicinal Use for Diarrhea

For gastrointestinal flu with diarrhea and cramping, a decoction of blackberry-leaf tea can prove to be very effective. Drink 2-3 small cups sweetened with a little honey over the course of a day. The astringent tannins in the leaves will reduce both the intestinal inflammation and the excess flow of secretions. For an even more effective tea, blend 2 ounces of blackberry leaves with 1 ounce of peppermint leaves. Caution: Never give children tea that includes peppermint. The menthol in the peppermint can have an adverse reaction in children.

Medicinal Uses for Skin Rashes

To treat inflamed or oozing rashes, make a decoction by gently boiling the blackberry leaves. Soak a cotton cloth in the liquid. Wring out the cloth and place it on the affected area; cover with plastic wrap. Leave on for 30 minutes. Repeat several times a day.
