We chose this fine mix and trust you as a woman to use it responsibly. The delicious mix can provide you with tremendous support when used properly.
Raspberry leaf tea is known to strengthen uterine muscles during pregnancy. This makes the contractions go better and bleeding during labor will be less. Raspberry leaf also stimulates the production of milk and can suppress morning sickness in early pregnancy.
Nettle tea is packed with vitamins and minerals, including a lot of iron. When you are pregnant, it is extra important to get enough iron. The iron ensures good oxygen transport in your own body and that of your unborn baby.
Calendula (Marigold) is a strong remedy against bacteria, fungi, yeasts and has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect. Furthermore, it has been used for centuries for the most diverse ailments. It helps support your skin during pregnancy, ease digestion and relieve muscle cramps. Especially supportive in the last trimester.
Lavender is relaxing in all forms of cramps and strengthens the immune system.
Rose is good for digestion, appetite, breathing, bruises, headaches, to improve memory and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Chamomile has a mild calming and soothing effect. A good night’s sleep is extra important during your pregnancy. In addition, it has a strengthening effect on your immune system because of the antioxidants. It is soothing for rising stomach acid, especially in combination with Calendula.
Use the herbs to make a tea. Prefer not to drink more than 1 or 2 cups per day, spread over the period of your pregnancy as needed. During all trimesters, but not daily. The tea can also be drunk during contractions for extra support. Do not overdo in use.
There may be several reasons why the use of raspberry leaf or other herbs are not recommended. For example, in the case of various physical disorders, use of medication and people who are hypersensitive to certain components of plants. Always discuss the use with your midwife and / or doctor if you are unsure.
