This magnificent looking plant has mysterious origins and often thought to have many different and opposing qualities. Indigo Herbs brings you Agnus Castus Tincture so that you might discover for yourself whether the legends are true regarding the herbal qualities of this small tree.

There are many historical references regarding Agnus Castus and its mythical effects with most regarding it to be a suppressant of the libido for both men and women. These concepts have mostly derived from the different names for this plant such as; Chasteberry, monkspepper and Chaste Lamb Tree. In ancient Greece Agnus Castus was used during the period of Thesmophoria when the Goddess was worshipped by women when their husbands would be out in the fields bringing in the harvest. During this period Greek women would line their bedding with the leaves and flowers of this small tree. It is often thought that the women practised this ritual to suppress their sexual desires while the men were away. It is more likely that Agnus Castus was thought to increase fertility and invite the powers of the Goddess into the bodies of women. The misconception might be because Dioscorides, author of De Materia Medica, noted that the smell of the plant was so pungent no man would be willing to sleep in a bed lined with Agnus Castus. Also the Classical Greek term for the plant is 'ágnos' which sounds like 'hagnós' which translates as 'chaste'. The Latin word 'agnus' which means 'lamb' also has been used to replace 'ágnos' and so it is quite conceivable that the early Christians associated this tree with innocence and chastity. Modern research suggests that because of the complex chemical make up of this plant then it might act as a suppressant and an enhancer of the libido in differing quantities.

Growing to a height of 1-5 meters and a member of the Vervain family, Agnus Castus grows in warm temperate climates and flowers in late summer. The fronds of flowers are purple and the hue of Lavender and having a pungent odour.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Agnus Castus Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Manufacture Process

Made here in the UK, this Agnus Castus Tincture has been produced with the utmost quality in mind.    The part of the plant that is used to make this Tincture is the berry which develops after flowering. After harvest the fruits are all checked to insure that they pass for quality and are mature enough to be used in the tincture process. After careful selection and cleaning the berries undergo a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added. 

 

Agnus castus has never been linked to any significant side effects, but minor problems are possible. Stomach upsets, itching and rashes have been noted. Agnus Castus must not be given to pre-pubesant girls.

Excellently packaged but not yet tried - more later.
If the packaging is anything to go by then the products would be excellent. Since I'm travelling I stored the packets of the various items in my suitcase and will use them in India.
