The genus Quercus includes between 200 and 600 species.
Let's move in the spring
Present almost everywhere in France up to 1300 m, it is much less represented in the South East.
Indo-European perk us (Quercus)
According to Lemery :
The leaves and bark of the oak are astringent, resolving, suitable for sciatic gout, for rheumatism, being used in hot fomentation; they arrest the courses of the belly and the haemorrhages, being taken in decoction by the mouth.
The oak acorn, called in Latin glans quercina , is also used in Medicine. It must be chosen large, well nourished: the bark is separated from it, and it is gently dried, taking care that the worms do not get into it, because it is subject to it; it is reduced to a subtle powder to use it.
It is astringent clean to soothe windy colic lac & the trenches of newly delivered women, for all belly courses. The dose is from a scruple to a drage.
The cupule or cap of the glans is astringent: it is used in external remedies to strengthen, we could also take it internally like acorn.
Oak galls or false galls, oak apples & oak grapes are excrescences which are the effects of the bite of certain gnats which deposit their eggs there and which produce worms: these excrescences are astringent.

On herbal medicine in general
Oak trees (Quercus spp.) as a source of extracts with biological activities: A narrative review,
Trends in Food Science & Technology,
Oak trees (Quercus spp.) constitute a relevant source of fractions and ingredients that have been tested regarding their biological activities. The high number of species, varieties and materials that can be found through this genus has led to a great diversity of extracts that can be investigated regarding their potential to improve human health status.
Scope and approach
In this review, several biological activities were revised through the scientific literature (antioxidant, immune-modulatory, antiproliferative, hypoglycaemic, hypocholesterolemic, antihypertensive, antimicrobial, etc.) paying attention to bioactive extracts obtained from different oak trees and parts, describing the selected extraction technology, the used experimental model, the published results and their potential impact on human health. Moreover, the related strengths and weaknesses were listed to elucidate the current state of the related scientific evidence.
Key findings and conclusions
In vitro and in vivo analyzes confirmed the potential of oak extracts particularly for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antitumor and antimicrobial effects. However, some points must be further investigated: additional bioactive molecules and abilities testing, advanced extraction techniques evaluation and more animal studies and clinical trials to validate the mentioned activities when the extracts are included in food matrices.
