A delicate and floral infusion of nourishing leaves and flowers.
Herbal medicine plays an intrinsic role in female health as historically the art of healing through herbs was gifted to women. Due to their favourable holistic properties, herbs’ response on the reproductive system is unmatched by western medicine for balance, safety and accessibility. They work in harmony with the body, restoring equilibrium and invigorating the entire system. Healing nature with nature, a natural kinship.
Ladys mantle reigns in this blend for its ability to nourish and tone the uterus. It’s a favourite of mine growing low to the ground with soft, round leaves that collect glistening drops of morning dew. Affectionately named “little Alchemist” for its expert management of our waterways- alchillea mollis improves female energy by reinforcing, protecting and connecting.
Red raspberry leaf offers similar qualities as a powerful uterine tonic, rich in flavanoids, vitamins and minerals to help tone and nourish the uterus. It is popular during the third trimester of pregnancy but this “herb supreme” is beneficial for women at all stages of the feminine life cycle.
Nettle is a wonderful source of non-heam iron which is essential for the health of our muscles, blood and energy- vital actions to support the reproductive cycle. High in vitamin C (which improves iron absorption) this cooling herb works as a cleansing alterative, liberating the body of unwanted toxins. This is helpful for hormone regulation by detoxifying any hormone excess.
Elder flowers with their high vitamin C content and abundance of antioxidants is another cooling herb with detoxifying properties. These fragrant blossoms help relieve water retention by eliminating toxins and heat from the urinary system.
You’ll be hard pressed to find shepherds purse on the shelves of wholefood stores these days and what a shame as this is one of my most admired herbs for women. The tiny heart-shaped leaves of this humble weed echo its oxytocin building properties. Not only is “mothers heart” full of the ‘love hormone’- it’s also a uterine contractor and super astringent. This helps stimulate blood flow when there is coagulam and staunches excess bleeding.
Yarrow, considered the “master of blood”, has an anti-inflammatory response on the body by regulating blood flow. The sterols found in the aerial parts of this plant help reduce heavy bleeding.
Sweet rose petals conclude this nourishing blend, relieving uterine congestion by cleansing the kidneys, liver and gall bladder of stagnation and heat. They add a sweet floral taste while restoring the nervous system to balance.
