Monk's pepper, the "plant for women", belongs to the labiates family, just like many other medicinal plants, e.g. basil, lavender or sage. 


It is often used for menstrual problems and to relieve premenstrual syndrome (PMS). In particular, monk's pepper proves effective for irregular and painful periods (dysmenorrhea) and painfully swollen breasts (mastodynia).


The positive effect on endometriosis has not yet been sufficiently researched, but there is reason to believe so due to the good effect on primary menstrual pain and its anti-inflammatory attributes.
