This tea is made from the leaves of the raspberry plant, also known as Rubus Idaeus. It is somewhat well known for its benefits during pregnancy, but it is beneficial to women at all stages of life.
It is naturally high in magnesium, potassium, iron, and b-vitamins which make it helpful for nausea, leg cramps, and improving sleep during pregnancy. The specific combination of nutrients in Raspberry Leaf makes it extremely beneficial for the female reproductive system. It strengthens the uterus and pelvic muscles which some midwives say leads to shorter and easier labors.
The Tannins in Raspberry Leaf give it astringent properties which make it soothing both internally and externally. A strong raspberry leaf tea or tincture will soothe sunburn, eczema, and rashes when used externally. Swishing with a tincture or infusion of Raspberry Leaf is great for the gums and can help alleviate the symptoms of gingivitis or gum disease.
Serving Suggestion: Add 1-2 teaspoons in a standard size cup or mug and brew in 100ºC water for 3 minute.
Ingredients: Raspberry Leaves.
