Centaury (Centaurium erythraea) is a shrubby annual plant that offers many health benefits. It is a bitter tonic that helps reduce fevers and has deworming properties. Stimulating to the digestive tract, it is useful for treating heartburn, indigestion, and weakness of the stomach after prolonged illness.

Centaury stimulates the flow of gall and cleanses the liver and kidneys. Use the tea to relieve gall stones and free a congested liver.

Taken over time, centaury tea will mitigate anemia and irregular menstruation. Also, because it has a soothing effect on the nervous system, this herb works well for treating depression, psychosomatic conditions, and eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa. Steep the plant in cold water for 2-4 hours, as heating destroys some of the medicinal properties.
