Thank you! I just received my order of herbs -- lightning fast! I placed my order late Monday night and was thrilled to find them already delivered today (Thursday).
I am enjoying a delicious Daily Boost Herba-Smoothie (alongside my 3 kids) as I write to you, and loving the fact that we are all getting something our bodies need for good health.
We are truly excited about the products you offer and the indispensable information your website provides. I can't wait to make our very first Double-E Immune Booster glycerite and homemade VOTFT bug repellent!
God bless you and your work, Angela S.
Did You Know?
After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
