Cyperus (Cyperus rotundus aka Nutgrass, Java Grass, Musta, Nut Sedge) herb is used widely in Ayurvedic, Chinese and other traditional Eastern, Western, Arabic and Asian folk medicine, a fragrant aromatic plant that aids digestion, containing antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory and anti-infective aromatic oils that relax muscles, strengthen gynecological systems, immunity and improve circulation - a good energising herb to bring mental and physical balance and ease.
