about the herb*


This herb should not be confused with False Unicorn Root (Chamaelirium luteum). It is an excellent remedy for sluggish digestion, which may give rise to dyspepsia, flatulence and debility. Its bitter nature will stimulate the digestive process and so it often relieves anorexia (appetite loss). Another name for True Unicorn Root is Colic Root, which shows its value in the treatment of digestive colic. As all these conditions often have a nervous involvement, this herb has been called a nervine. However, its benefit in anxiety is based on an easing of the physical aspects rather than on a direct relaxation of the nerves. It is reported to be of value in threatened miscarriage, but most herbalists prefer to use False Unicorn Root.

Actions: Bitter, anti-spasmodic, sedative, emmenagogue.

Herbie's Herbs' tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
