Raspberry Tea
Raspberry Tea
In addition to being beautiful and delicious, Raspberries have been known for their healing properties for centuries. Red Raspberries and their leaves are packed with vitamin C, and contain vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, folate, iron, and all kinds of other good stuff! They are known to help reduce inflammation and relieve pain associated with gout, arthritis and other inflammatory joint conditions. The tannins in raspberry leaf give it astringent properties which is helpful in the treatment of sore throat, swollen gums, upset stomach, canker sores etc... Raspberry leaf tea has been hailed by herbalists as THE woman’s health herb, as it helps alleviate menstruation cramps, heavy bleeding, mood swings and hot flashes. It is often recommended by doctors, doulas and midwives to improve labour, increase lactation, and ease some symptoms of postpartum depression. This tea is so perfectly pure and simple. And also, I love it.
