          Vitex Is also known as “Chaste Tree” or “Monk’s Pepper”. The Leaves and Berries have a long history in traditional medicine around the Mediterranean region but the essential oil only recently becoming popular in aroma therapy. Vitex is an emotionally balancing herb particularly for women. It is used by women suffering from PMS and is being researched as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders. Vitex can be diffused into the air or applied to the skin. It is a strong oil so it should be diluted in a carrier oil to less than 1% if applying to small areas of the skin.
          Vitex has not been used much in perfumery but it has a fresh herbal grassy aroma that might work well in some therapeutic blends.
