Indigo Herbs offers two high quality Blessed Thistle products in the form of Blessed thistle Tincture and Blessed Thistle Cut Tea. Make this a part of your Indigo Herbs herbal range feel the health benefits that this prickly plant can impart.

Many wonder why this thistle has the title of ‘Blessed’ as a prefix to its common name. In one of the legends of King Charlemagne, the king of the Franks in the 1st century, it is said that his army was dying of the plague when campaigning for control of Western Europe. Fearing that he would lose the war an angel appeared in his dreams and told him to shoot an arrow into the air and whichever plant the arrow landed he should feed to his troops. Charlemagne did as the heavenly message instructed and his arrow landed in a big patch of thistle. Having given his army the thistle to eat all were saved from the plague and continued to fight the war. This particular thistle became known as Blessed from this moment on. This theme of Blessed Thistle being able to cure plague carried on through the Middle Ages and is written as such in Jacobus Theodorus’s exhaustive work on herbs in the 16th century. Around the same time the Christian religious reformer Martin Luther used Blessed Thistle for aches and pains in the sides of his body. Maybe because of the name, Blessed Thistle was also used to ward off evil but at the same time was thought to show the seed of an evil soul if the plant grew upon someone’s grave.

The stem of the Blessed Thistle grows about two feet high, is reddish, slender, very much branched and scarcely able to keep upright under the weight of its leaves and flowers. The leaves are long, narrow, clasping the dull green stem, with prominent pale veins, the irregular teeth of the wavy margin ending in spines. The flowers are pale yellow, in green prickly heads, each scale of the involucre, or covering of the head, ending also in a long, brown bristle. The whole plant, leaves, stalks and also the flower heads, are covered with a thin coat of fine hairs.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. Blessed Thistle Cut can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes, relax and enjoy.

Serving:

1 teaspoon dried herb per 1 cup of boiling water, 3 times a day.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Blessed Thistle Cut Tea hails from Hungry and is grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves are separated from the root and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

People who are allergic to the daisy plant family may experience allergic symptoms.

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.

Blessed Thistle Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Blessed Thistle Tincture:
Traditionally Taken: 1-2 ml tincture up to 3 times a day.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner. 

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Gluten free.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

 Manufacture Process

When the Blessed Thistle reaches peek maturity the leaves are separated from the root and dried in shade before undergoing 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.  

People who are allergic to the daisy plant family may experience averse symptoms.
