The Wilderness Maven Moon Cycle


For many women, the menstruation time each month can be a painful experience. The level of pain varies from woman to woman. This tincture is designed to relieve cramping and back pain associated with menstruation, as well as help the body relax.


Cramp Bark is an antispasmodic herb that helps to soothe and relax uterine cramps associated with the menstrual cycle. The bark contains methyl salicylate which is a precursor to the salicylic acid that is used in aspirin, but much less irritating to the gastric mucosa.


Black Haw is a sister-herb to Cramp Bark. Cramp Bark and Black Haw are considered among the most important uterine antispasmodics, meaning they have the ability to relax smooth muscles, like the intestines and uterus. Each month when the uterine lining sheds during menstruation, the uterus must contract. In women with dysmenorrhea (painful or difficult menstruation) the contractions are very painful. Pain can be localized to the lower abdomen, but it can also be in the lower back, the vulva, as well as radiating down the thighs. Cramp Bark and Black Haw are extremely effective at reducing uterine contractions and uterine muscle spasms.


Black Cohosh has antispasmodic properties that lessen menstrual discomfort. It increases blood flow to the uterus, reducing the intensity of painful cramps. It also helps to stabilize hormone levels which can help alleviate symptoms of PMS.


Wild Yam acts on smooth muscle tissue, reducing muscle spasms of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, relieving painful menstruation and chronic pelvic pain. Wild Yam helps the uterus to work more efficiently during menses.


Chamomile is both anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic. Because this herb is also a nervine and mild sedative it may help to reduce stress, relax the nervous system and induce a restful state in the body. This can be very useful when experiencing menstrual cramping accompanied by anxiety and irritability.
