Pregnancy Support Organic Herbal Tea, 50gm
Nettle leaf Urtica dioica
Raspberry leaf Rubus idaeus
Chamomile flower Matricaria recutita
Ginger root Zingiber officinale
THE MEDICINE WOMAN Pregnancy Support tea blend honours the rite of passage of pregnancy. Gentle, wholesome nourishment for mother and developing baby during this extraordinary time of growth. An affectionate folk name for nettle is 'milk of the earth' due to its high nourishing qualities. It is also a classic herb for the breast feeding phase to heighten milk quality. Raspberry leaf is a tonic for the uterus to strengthen the uterine walls to hold the growing baby and can assist the efficiency of the labour process. I love handling dried raspberry leaf as it has a lovely soft springy texture that conjures up images of lying in a soothing bed of the herb! Chamomile is well considered as an aid for digestion, is calming to the nervous system, can be useful with cramps and restless legs. Ginger also can aid digestion, minimise nausea, and is an anti-inflammatory.
A wonderful natural source of vitamins and minerals including magnesium, calcium, iron, iodine, potassium, zinc and vitamins A, C and E. An excellent tea for energy levels.
This is a pleasant tasting tea with a hint of raspberry and ginger.
Caffeine free. No added flavours.
