Sedr is a natural remedy with its roots in ancient mediterranean traditions. Sedr is derived from the product the Ziziphus spina-christi, the Christ’s Thorn Jujube, an evergreen tree native to northern and tropical Africa and southern and Western Asia. It grows in Palestine/Israel in valleys up to an elevation of 500m. Ziziphus spina-christi has significance to Jews, Christians and Muslims, and is by some traditions the tree from which Jesus’s Crown of Thorns was made. The ripe fruits are edible and the flowers are an important source of honey in Eritrea and Yemen. Sedr powder has also been used for hundreds of years to cleanse and condition hair, adding thickness and protecting hair from the elements. Some studies even indicate the promotion of hair growth with the use of sedr.
