Vitex Agnus-Castus is also know as Chaste Tree or Chasteberry and is native from the Mediterranean region. For thousands of years, it has been used for its beneficial affect on the female hormonal system. Indeed, the seeds are being used for menstrual cycle irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), a more severe form of PMS called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and symptoms of menopause. The leaves, flowers, and berries can be used as a decoction, traditional tincture, syrup or simply eaten straight off the plant as a medicinal food. It grows in warm temperate and subtropical regions. The Chaste Tree needs full sun or partial shade along with well-drained soil.
