About: Standing tall in the summer sun, this fairy wand is literally covered in bees~ you can hear them dancing about as they pollinate the delicate white flower “puffs” and fly about the garden. White flowers rise above the earth; dark black roots tangle below. It is the roots gathered in the autumn that we prepare as an extract.
Considered a woman’s herb, Black cohosh supports one’s menstrual cycle, including the changes menopause brings; tonifies reproductive Qi; harmonizes and supports labor and delivery. Note: Seek a knowledgeable practitioner for guidance in use.
