Painting of black cohosh plant in the style of a botanical illustration, with eye and mouth, on pink background.

Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa)

Black cohosh relaxes the heart and balances hormones. Helpful if you feel stuck, unwilling to swallow injustice, or sick of listening to nonsense. It reduces anger, irritability, night sweats, mood swings and dependence on the opinion of others.

It also improves cyclical skin problems. Take it if you are forced to spend time with wart-like people.
