Healthy Woman Tea Blends

It’s a fact of life, that every woman between the ages of 13 and 51, give or take a few years, has to endure menstruation every month.

Most women breeze through this time with little problems.  But, like me, there are women who are not that lucky.  I’m almost 53, and according to my gynecologist, I’m a little overdue to ending menstruation.  Just my luck!

In the past five years, my periods tend to be heavy and more cramping than normal.  My physician assures me that this is normal and everything is okay, but being an herbalist, I created several tea blends that have helped me and other women with their different issues.

These blends are in no way a replacement for your physician’s care.

Irregular Periods

Irregelar Periods

Amenorrhea, the medical term for the loss of periods in women who should be having regular periods, is a sign that something in the body has gone wrong.

Sometimes overlooked for more “flashy” herbs in this current day, mugwort is still a favorite of wise women. Mugwort has an affinity for the female reproductive system and is used as a uterine stimulant that can bring on delayed menstruation and help restore a woman’s natural monthly cycle.

This special tea blend helps:
  • regulate periods
  • provide needed nutrition such as iron and other depleted vitamins
Ingredients:
  • 1 oz. Mugwort herb, dried
  • 1 oz. Nettle leaves, dried
  • Stevia leaves, dried (not the white stuff), Honey, Lemon, Etc. (opt.)
Directions:

Mix all herbs together, and store in a lidded glass jar.  Use as needed.

Boil 1 cup water, pour over herbs, cover and steep 1-2 teaspoons for 10 minutes. Remove herbs, and enjoy with stevia, honey, or lemon every morning.  Can be taken everyday,  1-3 times daily.
