Chaste Tree Berries . . .

13 years ago

Now, I'm not criticizing, but rather I find humor in one of the posts which says (in part) . . . "Vitex is also known as chaste tree (to curb sexual urges) and at the same time as monk's pepper (an aphrodisiac)." (

Am I the only one who sees the humor in what it says about "monk's pepper (an aphrodisiac)?" I mean . . . think about all these horny monks running around the monastery/abbey all because they took an aphrodisiac.

Truth is, it was called monk's pepper because it depleted sexual interests. Wheww! Glad we cleared that one up!!!

Thank you for listening. Hope you all found as much humor in the post as I did.
