Our new pregnancy tea, Baby Bump, is now mixed and available for purchase. This mix features Red Raspberry leaf (Rubus spp.), Stinging Nettles (Urtica Dioica), and Oat Straw (Avena Sativa), all tonic herbs which are meant for regular use and high in vitamins and minerals like calcium, magnesium, selenium, and manganese. A tonic herb is one whose nutrients and chemical constituents are said to fortify and strengthen body tissue and organs. Red Raspberry leaf is a tonic herb targeting the reproductive system making it ideal for labor preparation. This mix also features a variety of Mints (Mentha spp.), a tried and true herb, said to ease digestive upset.
This year we will also be donating $1 for every bag of Baby Bump tea sold to the Fistula Foundation to help bring relief to women living with obstetric fistula. We are blessed to have many of the modern medical amenities here to help women deal with the pain of childbirth and speed up the process if medically necessary. Women in countries without these medical amenities can labor for days on end. This can lead to a condition called fistula which leaves them incontinent, often causing them to be ostracized.
