Menopause and Black Cohosh: Menopause Tincture

The herbs in this formula have been shown to reduce hot flashes and cravings for sweets, as well as restore emotional balance. Vitex berry stimulates the production of progesterone (progesterone levels decrease during menopause, contributing to hot flashes, dizziness, and vaginal dryness). Ginseng reduces fatigue, and licorice contains compounds that apparently help reduce estrogen levels when they’re too high and increase them when they’re too low. Herbalists use dong quai to fortify female organs. Motherwort is traditionally used to remove stagnation and reduce pain, and orange peel provides flavor.

Like many herbal formulas, the Menopause Tincture won’t have an immediate effect. It may take several weeks before the first effects are felt, and up to two months before the full effects are realized.

One fluid ounce is the amount a standard herbal tincture bottle holds; it’s approximately equal to 30 droppersful or 30 milliliters.

• 1 fluid ounce black cohosh root tincture
• 1 fluid ounce vitex berry tincture
• 1 fluid ounce orange peel tincture
• 1/2 fluid ounce ginseng root tincture
• 1/2 fluid ounce licorice root tincture
• 1/2 fluid ounce dong quai root tincture
• 1/2 fluid ounce motherwort leaves tincture

1. In a clean glass jar, blend the black cohosh, vitex berry, and orange peel tinctures. Add the ginseng root, licorice root, dong quai root, and motherwort leaves tinctures.

2. Take 1 teaspoon in a little water or in nettle leaf or ginger tea in the morning and evening for six months, if needed, with three-day breaks every month during the week before ovulation. Store away from heat and direct sunlight.
