buddhiBump tea contains the following:

Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus): A rich nutritive herb high in antioxidant protection; great for post-partum care as well as any stage of the pregnancy to strengthen the uterus and give nutrition. Raspberry Leaf naturally contains Magnesium, a critical mineral for muscle relaxation, sleep and alkalinity.

Nettle leaf (Urtica dioica): A rich and tasty leaf vegetable; contains valuable iron, Vitamin K, Calcium and folic acid. This herb is safe for any stage of pregnancy, childbirth and nursing. Because of its diuretic and hypotensive actions, nettle leaf may lower blood pressure. If you are taking diuretics or other drugs meant to lower blood pressure, consult your doctor before using nettle leaf. Its long term, extended use is not recommended (over 1 year everyday is considered long-term).

Rose Petals (Rosa centifolia): A fragrant blood tonic, rose petals are known as ‘nature’s bandage’ for leaning up the wound site and increasing the healing potential. Roses are also known for increasing heart energy.

Spearmint: A mentally uplifting and digestive herb. Mints are an effective anti-nauseant, great for morning sickness or anytime tummy troubles. Most mints offer a boost of energy, spearmint being the lightest and sweetest flavor.

Milky Oat Tops: The milky stage of the unripe oat seed offers medicine for the nervous system, mood balance and hormones. The milky sap is also packed with trace minerals. “Oatstraw” is from the same plant and offers different nutrition, like silica for example.

Ginger: A gentle catalyst for digestion, circulation and soothes nausea. Ginger offers diverse healing properties and is considered safe for pregnancy and nursing. As a slight precaution: Ginger does increase circulation to the uterus and is not to be used post-partum for risk of hemorrhage; wait at least 1 hour after birth for this reason. Another precaution is that some sensitive individuals may react to ginger in the first trimester; if one is not used to the circulating effects of ginger root, it is best to wait until the second trimester to be safe.

 

The herbal tea blend, Pregnancy Tea is hand crafted by Herbal Mama, an Edmonton local herbalist using plant spirit medicine and clinical experience as a guide. Being that this blend is very nutritive and toning to several body parts; it is recommended for many other stages of womanhood. I have served this tea blend to my children too! Consult a certified health practitioner for your own health care needs.
