Blessed Thistle Organic
Blessed Thistle Organic, or organic Cnicus benedictus, has been one of the most revered of herbal perennial bitters, one of the oldest folk remedies and once cultivated in monasteries as a cure-all. The leathery, hairy leaves and spiny yellow flowers have given it a reputation as a noxious weed, but it is one of the most classically useful of organic herbs.
Blessed Thistle Organic is a fine overall bitter tonic, long used as a digestive aid taken before meals. It is known to stimulate the production of bile by the liver and is often used by healers to treat gall bladder and liver disorders, such as jaundice and hepatitis. The cut and sifted organic blessed thistle herb makes a distinctive tea for promoting overall good health. The herb is said to strengthen the heart and lungs.
The properties of Blessed Thistle Organic have also long given it a reputation as a natural hormone balancer for female health. Herbalists use it in baths and poultices for alleviating menstrual symptoms and help regulate menstrual cycles. Bulk supplies of the organic blessed thistle herb also make ready teas and infusions for helping with menopause symptoms and headaches. Blessed Thistle Organic has also been used to stimulate lactation and increase milk flow in nursing mothers, but a little bit of organic blessed thistle herb goes a long way. Nursing mothers should consult a physician and pregnant women should avoid blessed thistle herb altogether. In large doses, Blessed Thistle acts as a strong emetic, producing vomiting with little pain and inconvenience.
