Dried raspberry leaves are the leaves of the raspberry plant, which have been harvested and then dried in order to preserve them for later use. They have a distinctive, slightly sweet and slightly astringent aroma, and are often used to add flavor to teas, tinctures, and other herbal remedies. They can also be used in potpourris, sachets, and other natural fragrance products.
Despite their popularity as a herbal ingredient, it is important to note that dried raspberry leaves should not be used to treat or diagnose any medical conditions, as they have not been scientifically proven to have any medicinal properties.
