This bark is often used as a main component in natural insecticidal products for either humans or animals. It is purported to have anti-inflammatory and astringent benefits, making it a good choice for healing salve recipes. It can also be used as a natural soap colorant, by adding at trace to cold process soaps, or directly into melt & pour soaps - it will lend a rose-y tan color. Another benefit to adding this to bar soap formulations is that bayberry is suppose to be highly cleansing, thanks to its astringent properties.
In herbalism, bayberry root and bark has been used for many purposes. New World settlers learned how to boil the bark to make infusions to address minor skin irritations from the native Choctaw of the American southeast.
The root bark is used like cedar to deter pests in drawers and closets. The bark can also be burned outdoors to deter mosquitoes.
