Astringent Herbs

Definition

Astringent herbs are those herbs which contract body tissues. These herbs should be used when tissues are weak. Such Herbs tighten up and tone the loose or saggy tissues.
Steptics or Hemostatics that acts on the skin and stops bleeding. It typically contracts the cells of the skin. It dries the tissues whereas Astringents constrict the outer surface of the tissues, thereby restoring their resilience.
Eat an unripe fruit, mostly sour in taste, like green banana. Your mouth will pucker and feel dry. That is astringent action. The same thing will happen with Green Tea.
Astringents are locally drying but help the metabolism to retain water in the body on the whole.
Locally, they are Anti inflammatory and Anti microbial.
