This herb is native to eastern and central United States.  It has been traditionally and historically used as an anticonvulsant, sedative, but mostly as a gynecologic aid.  Blue Cohosh is known for labor induction, endometritis, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, and menorrhagil.  Other usages are for pelvic discomfort associated with menopause. This herb is not to be used during pregnancy.  Recommended dosage is 5-20 drops.


Blue Cohosh can be found growing in eastern North America from Manitoba to Alabama. It has been used by various Native tribes and is still used for women’s health.
