Words by Anny Schneider

This plant, sometimes called simply Vitex or " Chaste Lamb ", like its essential oil, is calming and a hormonal harmonizer used to treat irregularities in the menstrual cycle but also the throes of menopause.

It is used diluted in an absorbent oil such as hemp or jojoba, in compress or in localized friction of the abdomen, to relieve premenstrual cramps and breast pain which are often associated with it.

Origin of this essential oil

This essential oil of Chaste tree from Slovenia is distilled from the seeds of the plant.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.

More information

Chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus) is a one to two meter high shrub that grows naturally in Greece and Italy, where it can reach up to five meters in height.

The medicinal virtues of chaste tree berry have been known for over 2,000 years.

Dioscorides, an illustrious ancient Greek physician, mentions that the seeds present in the berry were made into a drink intended to calm the libido.

It is said that in the Middle Ages, monks in southern Europe consumed the berries so that they could better endure the pangs of celibacy.

Hence its popular name of "pepper of the monks".

This property, which incidentally has not been scientifically proven, seems to have determined the name of the shrub: agnus castis means "chaste lamb".

It entered into the composition of the "Essence of chastity of Michael".

In herbal medicine, its dried and crushed berries are used in traditional use and under the supervision of a health professional to produce standardized extracts which are used in irregular or absent periods, breast pain linked to the menstrual cycle as well as the syndrome premenstrual (fatigue, abdominal bloating, breast tension, irritability, headaches, etc.).
