Raspberry Leaf Tea- Check it out!

See also

Raspberry leaf is a safe and supportive herb that can be used throughout pregnancy. It is one of the few herbs that herbalists can agree on when it comes to herbs safe throughout pregnancy. Raspberry leaf is a uterine tonic with a high mineral content, which means it will support uterine health and nourish you. Bridgitte Mars states in her latest book that when used postpartum, raspberry leaf “can decrease uterine swelling and minimize postpartum hemorrhaging as well as increase the colostrum in the mother’s milk.” Raspberry can also be beneficial for women outside of pregnancy to work with menstrual issues, anemia, and diarrhea.

Making raspberry leaf tea is a bit different from your typical 5-minute tea bag steep because we want to draw minerals out and this takes time. So, to make:

  • Boil water
  • Grab a mason quart jar
  • Fill it with 4 tablespoons (1 tablespoon of tea per cup) of raspberry leaf tea
  • Then fill it with hot water
  • Let it steep for 8 hours or overnight (4 hours is a minimum steeping time!)
  • Strain and enjoy the tea all day long!
