Description

Tincture made by a process of hydro-ethanolic percolation, with a ratio of 1 part Holy Thistle to 4 parts liquid. Liquid comprises of 75% water and 25% sugar beet derived ethanol. 

Carbenia benedicta (St. Benedict's thistle, blessed thistle, holy thistle or spotted thistle), is a thistle-like plant in the family Asteraceae, native to the Mediterranean region, from Portugal north to southern France and east to Iran. It is known in other parts of the world, including parts of North America, as an introduced species and often a noxious weed.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Antimicrobial - Two compounds found in blessed thistle, polyacetylene and cnicin, can help your body battle bacterial infections.

Anti-Inflammatory - Blessed thistle has been shown to lessen or totally halt inflammation.

Astringent - Blessed thistle can help prevent or at the very least slow down bleeding due to its astringent-like qualities. Because of these properties it is used to create natural remedies for skin ulcers and boils.

Detoxifying - blessed thistle can stimulate the bile production, which assists with detoxification of the liver.

Digestive - Blessed thistle is often used to help stimulate the body’s secretion of gastric acid and the flow of bile, which can improve digestion. It can also be used to address flatulence and indigestion. In addition, it can stimulate appetite, which makes it helpful in treating anorexia.

Galactagogue - taken to help increase breast milk production.
