The Chinese herb Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) is a very good woman’s tonic. A good herbal blend for menstrual cramps, PMS symptoms, or delayed menstruation is made by mixing powdered herbs. This blend is suitable for all three doshas.
5 parts dong quai (Angelica sinensis)
2 parts musta (Cyperus rotundus)
1 part each: turmeric, cinnamon, and nutmeg
At the onset of symptoms, 1 tsp can be washed down with warm water 1 – 3 times per day.
These herbs can be found at Banyan Botanicals or Starwest Botanicals.
