    shepherd's purse is a wild, beautiful herb with little heart shaped seed pouches and a spicy, pungent smell. this plant has a traditional use as an ally for uterine hemorrhage, as well as digestive issues and other excessive bleeding, including nose bleeds.

    it also contains high levels of calcium and constituents said to increase calcium absorption.

    while this remedy is traditionally used by midwives, wise women, and birth keepers for postpartum hemorrhage, it should never be used preventatively or "just in case." the best way to avoid excessive postpartum bleeding is undisturbed, normal, physiological birth. while plant medicine can be nourishing and powerful, nothing beats the physiology of birth. if you choose to add this remedy to your birth kit, i also encourage you to dive into conversation and relationship with a wise woman birth keeper to explore the deep cultural myths and fears around bleeding in birth.

    you can find me for consults here at any time!

    shepherd's purse tincture should also always be made FRESH. the dried plant tincture lacks effectiveness and potency.

    our tinctures are always made with fresh plant when appropriate!

    this tincture was created from fresh shepherd's purse seeded tops at the new moon, capturing the dark moon energy of women's traditional bleeding time. these plants were gathered from well nourished soils in the east bay hills.

    all ingredients are always organically produced or ethically wildcrafted and whenever possible are sourced from our own farm or other local herbalists.
