Blue Cohosh is a powerful women's ally, who's main action is on the uterus. It has a wide variety of uses, dating from when Native American Chippewa wise-women used a strong decoction for contraceptive purposes. Blue Cohosh is often used alone or in combination with other herbs for regulation the menstrual cycle and to ease painful cramps. It is also used in formulas to treat endometriosis, chlamydia and cervical dysplasia. As a uterine tonic, it nourishes and revitalizes the uterine tissue in a variety of circumstances, including after pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion or coming off the Pill. It is commonly used during the last 2-4 weeks of pregnancy to give the uterus a final toning, thus making the birthing process quicker. It can be used during birth to ease labor pains, jump-start a stalled labor. And after birth to deliver a retained placenta and stop bleeding by helping the uterus clamp down without causing the cervix to close as well. For these purposes, midwives usually use a combination of Blue and Black Cohosh, in equal amounts. Tinctures are used, because the herbs active ingredients are not water soluble. Serving size: 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon (25-40 drops) Contradiction: At first sign of side effects or toxicity Blue Cohosh should be discontinued.
