Blue Vervain, Wildcrafted 1oz.
Blue vervain has both sedative and antispasmodic properties. It can be useful to treat insomnia, especially for those who awaken in the middle of the night. Take 20-100 drops of the liquid extract in the evening and / or before bed. Blue vervain helps to reduce menstrual cramping and to stimulate suppressed menses which result from stress. It also reduces intestinal cramping. Additionally, it is a strong digestive bitter. It stimulates hydrochloric acid and bile secretion, which improves the digestion of proteins and fats. It also acts as a diaphoretic, which induces sweating and helps to break a fever. Blue vervain is specific for children or individuals whose nervous systems become aggravated from illness.
**Contraindications: do not consume blue vervain during pregnancy.**
