How it Heals

In Chinese Medicine, Bugleweed is a key herb in activating blood circulation and dispelling stasis to regulate menstruation. It also regulates water circulation and reduces swelling (injuries and edema).

In Western medicine, Bugleweed works to lower inflammation, regulate hormones, and reduce cycle-related breast pain. 

Fun fact: Bugleweed is considered an invasive species in North America, as it can quickly spread and provide ground cover for large areas.

How we use it

It is a great blood moving herb that is traditionally paired with its sister herb, Yi Mu Cao (Motherwort).
