BUGLE HERBAL DESCRIPTION
Bugle (Ajuga reptans) is also known as Carpenter's Herb, Common Bugle, and Middle Comfrey. Bugle is a perennial herb that grows up to 12 inches tall. It has creeping runners that produce rosettes of leaves and small blue to purple flowers. It is thought that the tannin content in this plant helps stop bleeding and heals cuts. It has also been used to stop lung and internal hemorrhaging and herbalists have long prescribed Bugle for treating coughs, ulcers, rheumatism, and liver disorders. This herb is thought to have mildly narcotic, sedative, bitter, analgesic, astringent, laxative and aromatic properties. It also slows the heart rate the same way digitalis does.

Bugle is still used occasionally as a wound healer but is specifically used for over-active thyroid glands with symptoms of tightness of breath, palpitations and shaking. This herb can help steady a weak heart rate when there is a build-up of water in the body. Bugle can be used to ease coughs, especially when caused by nervousness. This herbs works well in conjunction with Skullcap or Valerian.

Drink 3 times a day. For a tincture, take 1 to 2 ml, 3 times a day. For other formulations read and follow product label directions.
