Shepherd’s Purse & Yarrow Tincture


Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) known to be a hemostatic (stops bleeding) and an antiseptic for both external and internal wounds and bleeding (including excessive menstrual flow).

Shepherd’s Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris) is a very powerful styptic and one that I use regularly for women who suffer from flooding during their periods. As a postpartum herb, it can be useful for postpartum hemorrhage.

-All herbal extracts are macerated for at least one moon cycle for potency.

Benefits of tinctures: Tinctures can be taken quickly. Just a half teaspoon gives you a ton of the concentrated benefits of whatever herb you’re using. Alcoholic extractions have a long shelf life and a dosage contains very little alcohol for those concerned. You may add tincture dosage to warm water or tea or take direcyly under the tongue.

**If pregnant or nursing, please consult a professional and use with care.

Healing Attributes

Yarrow: According to herbalist Matthew Wood: “It can be called the ‘master of the blood.’ Through numerous devices – clotting, unclotting, neurovascular control, flavonoids, etc. – it regulates the flow of blood to and from the surface, in and out of the capillaries and venules, thickening and thinning. Through this it cures all manner of wounds, bruises, hemorrhaging, and clotting. The same property, combined with its diaphoretic capacity, makes it a ‘master of fever,’ moving blood to or from the surface to release or preserve heat and regulate fluids.”

Shepherd’s Purse: In modern times Shepherd’s Purse is mostly used for women who are experiencing excessively heavy menstruation caused by problems such as fibroids or endometriosis.
