Chaste tree is a Mediterranean herb and grows wild in southern European countries.
The specific constituents have not been identified, however, the berries are thought to inhibit the actions of male androgens, which are responsible for causing acne in adolescence for both young men and women. It is these testosterone surges which is thought to cause acne.
Chaste tree gently balances the hormones for a smoother transition.

I have been using “The Blush of Young Love Tea” every morning for over a month now and my skin loves me for it! Beautifully and Lovingly crafted from Calendula, Echinacea, and Chaste tree, this tea looks, smells and tastes lovely. I’ve tried everything for my hormonally related cystic acne and this is the only product that has worked. As advised by my Naturopath, I’ve been having one cup every morning at the same time. My skin broke out in the first week but this is a normal part of the healing process when the body is ridding unwelcome toxins. I did use the tea topically when this happened and found less infections. I also noticed a reduction in my pre-menstrual symptoms, less breast swelling and a smoother transition. I will definitely be ordering more of this plant magic from Medicinal Botanix.
