Aniseed, Caraway, Nettle and Fennel
Aniseed - The actions of this herb are carminative and anti-spasmodic and a galactagogue that supports normal lactation. It is used to ease griping, intestinal colic and flatulence (wind). Its major indications for use are for colic, especially in children, indigestion and lack of appetite. It has other health benefits, containing a range of minerals, including iron. It is high in antioxidants and so can reduce inflammation.
Caraway- Caraway’s actions are carminative, anti-spasmodic and galactagogue. It is a calming herb that is used to ease flatulence and colic, especially in children. Like Aniseed, it can also stimulate the appetite. Great for an irritable bowel. It also has beneficial flavonoid antioxidants and a wide range of minerals. The seeds are a storehouse for Vitamins A, E, C and B vitamins.
Nettle- nettle is often included in a herbal blend because of its long history of use as a ‘tonic’ or strengthening herb, especially after childbirth, and for its iron content. Nettles are a widely applicable plant to use for strengthening and support. It also has traditional use as a galactagogue.
Fennel- Fennel’s actions are carminative, anti-spasmodic and galactagogue. Its major indications for use are for relieving colic and flatulence, especially in infants, with the added benefit of stimulating digestion and appetite.
