Black Cohosh is a perennial flowering herb, growing from around 10 inches to 2 feet high, native to forests in eastern North America. Its root was used by Native Americans and Eclectic physicians to relieve PMS symptoms.

Black Cohosh contains phytoprogesterone compounds, and herbalists prescribe it for hormone-related conditions including hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms, anxiety, polycystic ovary syndrome (not to be used for endometriosis), sleeping issues, and night sweats.

Black Cohosh is also a popular remedy among midwives to help prepare the cervix for labor. This herb should only be taken during the last few weeks of a full-term pregnancy, and only under the supervision of a qualified health care practitioner. It is an important ingredient in a traditional tonic used to help prepare for labor and child birth.

This herb is commonly used as a tincture, in low doses.
