Often called the herb for women, Vitex Chaste Berry is used for irregular menstrual cycles, PMS issues, and menopause. On the flip side, men also use this berry as it is reputed to help with frequent urination issues. Note: if you are a man seeking to use this berry internally – the ancient story is that monks would chew the soft bark of this tree to retain their celibate nature, so if you are at all worried about those things ….. do consider that there is a reason why it’s called chaste berry.
Topically — this berry is a great additive for acne treatments, like facial washes. To add this benefit into your recipes, simply steep Vitex Chaste Berry in warm water or oil, to release the constituents into your liquid. Strain off the berries and use the retained juice inside your formulation. If you are using it as an acne compress, you can use it immediately upon the skin. Because of its anti-inflammatory nature, it also works great on insect bites and other mild skin inflammation.
INCI: Vitex agnus-castus (vitex / chaste) berries.
