General Information about Blessed Thistle: Blessed Thistle works by stimulating the mammary gland to promote and increase breastmilk supply. A popular traditional herbal remedy, it is often used in conjunction with Fenugreek for maximum results. Blessed Thistle can also be used as a digestive tonic and to assist in relieving headaches that are associated with menstruation. The name ‘Cnicus’ is derived from the Greek ‘knekos’ or safflower, a name that was formerly attached to thistles. ‘Benedictus’ is from the Latin meaning ‘blessed’, which was used due to the plant’s curative properties that were considered a gift from God.
