Product Description

Squawvine Herb (c/s or powder, Wildharvest)

 

Also Known As – Mitchella repens L., Rubiaceae, Madder family

Origin - USA

Overview -  The plant grows in dry woods, among hemlock timber, and in swampy places; in flower in June and July. The leaves resemble those of clover and remain green throughout the winter. The fruit or berry also remains bright scarlet, is edible, and nearly tasteless, dry, and full of stony seeds. The use of the drug is peculiarly American.

Medicinal Uses - People take squawvine for anxiety, diarrhea, water retention (edema), low urine output, varicose veins, sleep problems (insomnia), congestive heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, severe diarrhea (chronic dysentery), and colitis.

  • Women take it for treating menstrual disorders, “lumpy breasts” (fibrocystic breast disease), and vaginal discharges. They also use it to ease childbirth, treat depression after childbirth, and improve the flow of breast milk.

Herbs to Combine/Supplement – Squawvine is often used in combination with Raspberry.

Parts Used – Leaves

Precautions - There are no known side-effects from using squawvine.  Little research has been done, however, on its safety. Pregnant women should not take squawvine during the first two trimesters of pregnancy.

Preparation and Dosage - Squawvine tea, which is also known as an infusion, is made by pouring 1 cup (240ml) of boiling water over 1 tsp (1.5gm) of the dried herb.  The mixture is steeped for 10 to 15 minutes and then strained.  Squawvine tea may be taken up to three times a day.  Women seeking relief for difficult or painful menstruation can combine squawvine with cramp bark and pasque flower.

  • Infusion: steep 1 tsp. leaves in 1 cup water for 30 minutes. Take 1 to 3 cups a day.
  • Decoction: use 2 oz. herb in 1 pint of water and take in wineglass doses.
  • Tincture: as a tonic, take 5-15 drops, 3 times a day.
