Many women struggle with inflammation, increased stress, fatigue, bladder issues, nausea and irritable bowels with their menstrual cycles. Most women are too embarrassed to talk about it. Truthfully, this includes me and my three daughters. Post-menopausal women are known to struggle with these symptoms as well. These five herbs that have been put together for this tea to support your digestive, feminine, and immune health.
Herbal tea remedies are what I turn to for most of my family's ailments. Learning to blend teas is rewarding, because you are actually participating in supporting your immune system, solving a problem, easing symptoms, providing nourishment through beneficial herbs and plants. By doing your own research and educating yourself with plant knowledge, you get to know each ingredient that you are putting into your tea blends. I always encourage women to learn about herbs and plants, and how to use them appropriately for health benefits. Many ingredients can be grown in your own garden, yard, or bought at a health food store or online. For this tea, I used my own homegrown raspberry leaves, rose hips, and peppermint. I dried orange peel (from store bought oranges) and bought fennel seed online. So, if you are looking for a tea that supports a woman's health, eases stress, inflammation, digestion and boosts the immune system, then this is the tea blend for you.
All you need is dried raspberry leaves, dried peppermint leaves, dried rose hips, fennel seeds and dried orange peel. You can get these ingredients at Mountain Rose Herbs.
