*CHASTE TREE BERRY ($.82 / oz.)

Chaste Tree Berry or Vitex agnus-castus, sometimes called “the woman’s herb”, is native to central Asia and the region bordering the Mediterranean Sea. It has been used for over 2000 years to help alleviate women’s health concerns such as infertility, menstrual irregularities and other gynecological concerns. The vitex berry was used by both men and women in ancient Greece and Rome, and by monks during the Middle Ages in order to suppress sexual desire. Pliny the Elder noted that Athenian maidens would put the leaves under their beds during the festival of Thesmophoria to help preserve their chastity.
