Pregnancy Tea

by One of our readers

December 2005

My favorite tea to ensure a healthy pregnancy consists of equal parts of Red Raspberry, Alfalfa, Lemon Balm, and Plantain. I drank this daily when I was carrying my twins, who were born to term.

Since then, several women who previously could not conceive or carry a baby to term have tried this tea blend, and are now proud mothers (though that is not actual proof the herbs were responsible). It is primarily a nutritive formula; the Red Raspberry helps strengthen the uterus, the Lemon Balm eases stress, and the Plantain adds internal soothing.

I love your store! I have been very happy with the prices on your herbs, and books as well as the products themselves. Practical Herbalism is one of my favorites, allowing me to successfully treat my husband (who was a skeptic) and his gout. It is exciting to be able to take a few common herbs (formerly known as weeds!) and be able to do good for others. I like having the resources at my fingertips so we don't have to run to the doctor for every issue. I have also had successes with The Immune Booster tincture recipe, and by following advice in The ABC Herbal and The How to Herb Book. I am currently making a Catnip and Fennel tincture for my 7 week-old for his gassy times. Anyhow, thank you for the book recommendations on your website. I tell people about your site whenever I can!

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
