Black Cohosh Root

Organically grown and sustainably harvested.

Botanical Name: Cimicifuga racemosa

Black Cohosh is an herbaceous perennial in the buttercup family. It was a favorite herbal remedy for Native Americans. The name cohosh is from the Algonquian tribe, and means rough, referring to the feel of the rhizome. It was given the name "bugbane" because the flowers have such a strong odor and have been used to effectively repel insects. Other common names include black snakeroot and rheumatism weed.

Today, black cohosh is most commonly used for menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and night sweats (together known as vasomotor symptoms), vaginal dryness, heart palpitations, tinnitus, vertigo, sleep disturbances, nervousness, and irritability.
