Cascara is a plant originating from the American Pacific Ocean region, found from the northern United States to Colombia.¹ The use of this plant began with the Indians of America and was introduced to Europe in the late 19th century. The bark, with its excellent medicinal properties, is removed from the thick trunks and branches between April and August, and then they are dried.², ³
