Safe for Pregnancy?
by Evie on Mar 28, 2014

Thanks!

    Hello,
    Spearmint is generally accepted as safe while pregnant, but may dry up a woman's milk supply a little while nursing. If you have any further doubts it would be best to ask your midwife of OB-GYN as they will know you and your baby best! Thanks!

From our Mailbox

When our family begins to get the sniffles, I prepare a simple concoction of
the following in a small dish:

½ cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 inches of ginger, minced

Drizzle ¾ cup of non-pasturized honey over the mix of fresh herbs and cover
with a lid. In a while, you will notice a runny liquid forming on top; this
is an extraction of the ingredients. Use this liquid as a cough syrup
throughout the day. Our colds do not usually last more than 2 days with this
easy and effective concoction!

This combination can also be used in a tea form. Simply brew a cup of mint
or chamomile tea and add some of the above mentioned liquid along with some
freshly squeezed lemon juice. Non-pasturized honey can also be added to
taste. This tea works just like Neocitran without the use of drugs or
chemicals!
