Blessed Thistle Herb Powder
Botanical Name - Cnicus benedictus
Other Names - Holy Thistle, Saint Benedict thistle, spotted thistle, bitter thistle, blessed cardus
Origin - Poland
A component in Bitters formulas; not considered edible due to bitterness of leaves. Historically, herbalists and healers believed that ingesting bitter herbs provided strength that could be used to combat illness. We now understand that physiologically, bitter herbs stimulate certain organs of the body into a reflex action that triggers the glands into action and this seems to be especially noticeable in the liver and female reproductive organs.
Packaging - We package all of our herbal, fruit powders and spices in a heat sealed mylar bag which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria. The bag can be resealed with any household iron or curling iron.
Precautions - People who are allergic to artichokes may react to blessed thistle and should avoid it. Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family (such as feverfew, chamomile, or Echinacea species) should exercise caution with Blessed Thistle as allergic cross-reactivity to Asteraceae plants is common.
