There is so much controversy over which herbs a pregnant women should drink AND, at what stage of the pregnancy are the herbs safe, that I have done more research using the most modern and up to date info that I can find. So, the best I could come up with and the best info that I feel I can live with came from the Natural Medicines Database. From what I have been reading, it might be just as well for those of you who are pregnant, to wait until after the first trimester to drink herb teas and even at that only drink no more than 2 cups of tea per day.
So, these are the herbs that I am using in this formula:
Red Raspberry Leaf has always been the foundation for herb tea for pregnancy. It is rich in iron, helps promote uterine health during pregnancy, increases milk production, decreases nausea, and eases labor pains
Peppermint Leaf - Is helpful in relieving nausea/morning sickness and flatulence.
Lemon Balm - Has a calming effect and helps relieve irritability, insomnia, and anxiety.
orange zest loaded with vitamin C, which helps to support the immune system of mothers-to-be, research shows that higher intakes of vitamin C during pregnancy can reduce the risk of infant allergic disease and wheeze, and keep your baby's brain healthy.
This is available loose and in tea bags
All herbs used in this formula are grown organically without the use of pesticides, herbicides, etc and are hand harvested with no machinery involved. Buy cheap herbs, get cheap quality.
Come and visit my store for good old fashion, high quality, fresh teas, bath herbs,and just herbs!
For the most part unless mentioned otherwise, each tea bag will make 2 to 3 cups of tea; If loose herb tea, two ounces will make about 23 cups of tea . One ounce of just an herb is about a sandwich bag, and sometimes a little more. If it is a root herb such as burdock root it is heavier, thus an ounce would be about a quarter of a sandwich bag. Comfrey, plantain and nettle leaves would be in a quart size bag.
