*Ashoka has been used for centuries, and it is a well-known female tonic. This glabrous tree has the most beautiful looking orange-red flower that blooms in bunches. The bark of this tree has special action on the female reproductive system. The name Ashoka means "free from any sorrow or agony", when taken as a tonic this herb is a boon for all female reproductive imbalances.

For centuries Ayurveda has recommended this herb for discomfort during the cycle and also to prevent excessive flow.
