Femininity Herbal Infusion - Caddy (30g)
We have designed a limited blend specifically for the menstruation phase of the menstrual cycle. Yarrow and agnus castus have traditionally been used to regulate hormones, which in turn relieve heavy bleeding and cramps, whilst chamomile relaxes the muscles associated with menstrual cramps. Our yarrow and agnus castus leaf is from Cyherbia, Cyprus, and our chamomile is comb picked from Naxos, Greece. Floral, herbaceous with hemp-esque notes.
We have designed a limited blend specifically for the menstruation phase of the menstrual cycle, using chamomile, yarrow and agnus castus leaf.
Throughout the ages chamomile has been used by physicians and herbalists for feminine health, in fact the botanical name of the most widely cultivated plant, Matricaria, is derived from the Latin word for womb. Chamomile has antispasmodic properties – i.e. it relaxes the muscles associated with menstrual cramps, so is the perfect homeopathic remedy. Naturally grown amongst the olive trees across the Cycladic island of Naxos, Greece (co-sourced by our friends at Cycladi Farm). Our chamomile is comb picked and dried by villagers using traditional methods during late spring. Warming and soothing, with a gentle floral sweetness, our chamomile flowers are lighter than standard chamomile due to the micro-climate of Naxos, altitude and purer growing conditions.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) has been used for thousands of years for its potential health benefits. Its genus name, Achillea, refers to the Trojan warrior Achilles, in Greek mythology, as he used yarrow to treat the wounds of his soldiers during the siege of Troy, due to its purported wound healing benefits. As a result of the application of yarrow on the battlefields it became known as Herba Militaris (the military herb). Whilst Achilles has been credited largely for yarrow’s discovery and use there is some evidence to suggest that it was used possibly as part of Neanderthal culture. Yarrow has traditionally been used to regulate hormones, which in turn relieves heavy bleeding and cramps. Our organic handpicked yarrow is from Cyherbia, in Avgorou, Cyprus, grown in fertile terra rossa soil, with no chemicals or pesticides.
Historically, agnus castus has been used in traditional medicine to treat hangovers, fevers and digestive issues, and was recognised to bring on menstruation and relieve cramps. At present, agnus castus is used in traditional medicine as a herbal remedy primarily for conditions of the female reproductive system which may stem from a luteal phase defect. This includes premenstrual syndrome (PMS), by treating hormone imbalances, namely acting on the pituitary gland to increase the luteinizing hormone, which in turn stimulates progesterone production, and also decreasing prolactin levels. Agnus castus is also important during menopause. Our organic handpicked agnus castus leaves are from Cyherbia, in Avgorou, Cyprus, grown in fertile terra rossa soil, with no chemicals or pesticides.
