As salam walakum,
Good Morning, Evening, and Afternoon. I hope you and your families are doing well.
Here today is a beautiful day. Blessed with clean air and the sound of the sea in the wind.
Today is the start of Herb of the day. Herbs are such a blessing from our creator. Today I would like to share about Agnus Castus.
The Agnus Castus has many names.
- Chaste tree
- Abraham’s balm
- Lilac chaste tree
- Monk’s pepper
The dried, ripe fruit has been used in traditional medicine. Its been known and recognized in the works of Hippocrates (460 AD, Dioscorides (Ad 40) and Theophrastus (Ad 372).
It has pretty little purple flowers. There are other colors, like lavender. Grows in the meditation areas.
Its a tree or shrub about 6-7 meters (18-22 ft). Blooms in summer. Dark brown fruits are the size of peppercorns. They have a peperish aroma and the flavor is collected in autumn.
- Menstrual issues
- Premenstrual symptoms
- Irreguralatry of menses.
- (any time taking a herb. Seek assistance from your local herbalist or doctor) As there may be drug interactions.
- Cancer ( Refrence )
Side Effects and Toxicity
- Inter~mentrual bleeding
- urticaria (red rash)
- All side effects seemed to be mild and resolved without discontinuation of treatment. A study was done for 170 women with 20mg daily, and others had a placebo for three menstrual cycles. The side effects were similar in the herb and to those with the placebo.
For Oral (adults)
Fruit: 0.5-1.0g 3x a day (dried crushed fruit). Better to take in smaller dosages
For those taking tablets 20 – 40 mg
Tincture 1:5(g/ml) 50-70% ethanol
People who have an allergy to or are hypersensitive to V. Agnus-Castus
People preg. or breastfeeding.
So where do you find it?
You would be able to find the berries, pill form supplements, The Tincture, and essential oil at Mountain Rose Herbs. They have excellent customer service. They have been in business since 1987. You will see me suggest them often as they are a great company.
