Our wild agnus castus berries are handpicked 500m above sea level from the southern area of Meghri, one of the lowest areas in Armenia (near the border of Iran). Compared to standard agnus castus berries, our agnus castus is more pungent due to altitude, the fact it is wild grown and purer growing conditions.
Historically, agnus castus has been used in traditional medicine to treat hangovers, fevers and digestive issues, and was recognised to bring on menstruation and relieve cramps.
At present, agnus castus berries are used in traditional medicine as a herbal remedy primarily for conditions of the female reproductive system which may stem from a luteal phase defect. This includes premenstrual syndrome (PMS), by treating hormone imbalances, namely acting on the pituitary gland to increase the luteinizing hormone, which in turn stimulates progesterone production, and also decreasing prolactin levels. Agnus castus is also important during menopause.

Earthy, nutty and sweet notes.
The majority of our wildcrafted herbal infusions from Armenia grow in the pristine alpine meadows of the Lori region at an altitude of 1,200 – 2,100m above sea level. Castus Agnus are handpicked 500m above sea level from the southern area of Meghri, one of the lowest areas in Armenia.
I tried this to help me sleep better. What I discovered that two cups of this would completely alleviate my night sweats. Now I sleep like I did before my hormones decided to 'take over'... Most of the time I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep and of course the next day I was so tired. It has a bit of spicy taste, but now I am used to the taste and actually look forward to my cup of tea before bedtime.
Thank you for an amazing infusion and lovely samples sent with my order <3
I was looking for a natural way to maintain my PMS, and found this product on my social media. This tea definitely balanced my hormones, I'm drinking Agnus Castus every day during my luteal and menstrual phases for 3 months now.
