Verbena hastata, North America
Blue Vervain alcohol tincture has been an incredible ally for the central nervous system: nervine tonic, sedative, antispasmodic. If you've ever had Blue Vervain in tea, you'll know how bitter it is. Bitter is good! Helps us process and digest. Cooling.
BV is a fantastic ally for use in recovering from chronic stress, especially when one effect is spending a lot of times in our head trying to process and worrying/ruminating.
This tincture eases tension, relaxes active/perseverating thought patterns, assists with rest and sleep, all aiding in balancing focus among emotional, mental and physical aspects, helps get out of the restless mind and root in your body. Supportive during PMS and menstruation also: relieves cramping and supports CNS.
