Blue Cohosh Root – Uses and Benefits

Blue cohosh was once used extensively as a medicinal herb by several native American tribes, and many of the herb’s uses were soon adopted by the European settlers.

It was primarily used for ailments related to women’s health, especially during labor and birth.
The herb was used to reinforce contractions and restore or speed up slow labor due to lack of muscle strength in the womb.

It was also considered to have relaxing effect during labor and to relieve anxiety and pain during pregnancy.

Current application of blue cohosh as herbal medicine does not differ significantly from the traditional use.

The herb is still considered by some herbalists and midwives as a tonic for the womb and a remedy that can relieve pain in the uterus and fallopian tubes.
