Makara herbs

Fresh makara herbs

The makara herb was a herb native to Bajor.

Bajoran women used it to increase their progesterone levels during pregnancy. It could also act as a counter agent to various sedatives, including merfadon.

Doctor Julian Bashir prescribed makara herbs for Major Kira Nerys during her pregnancy in 2372 and 2373. The taste was disliked by both Miles O'Brien and Kira, who likened the taste to "something that crawled out of Quark's ear." (DS9: "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places", "The Darkness and the Light")

In 2373, Furel and Lupaza brought Kira fresh makara herbs, picked the previous night on Bajor. Kira's use of makara herbs later on helped her to resist the merfadon given to her by Silaran Prin. (DS9: "The Darkness and the Light")

Makara herbs may have been an ingredient in the Makara fizz.
