Herb of the Month: Blue Cohosh

Herb of the Month: Blue Cohosh

Posted by TriLight Health on May 2nd 2023

Mother's Day is right around the corner. Today we look at an herb widely used for mother's health, Blue Cohosh. This herb has documented use for pregnancy and childbirth for centuries around the world. It's one midwives often turn to during childbirth, especially when labor seems to be stalling. It is also called squaw root or papoose root. Commonly found in the eastern forest of the US,  it can be found in many parts of North America. Herbalists most often use this herb as a tincture or in homeopathic dilutions.
