Herb Spotlight : Red Raspberry Leaf

High in magnesium, potassium, iron and vitamins A, B, C and E, Raspberry Leaf Tea is a nourishing mineral-rich tonic. 

I recommend it to all of my pregnant patients during their second and third trimesters for its remarkable ability to both relax and tone the uterus in preparation for birth. It can also be used effectively for menstrual issues, morning sickness and fertility support. Use it as a strong tea or tincture on canker sores or inflamed gums. Externally, it can also east the symptoms of eczema, sunburn or other skin rash. 

The taste is similar to a fruity black tea but without the caffeine (making it a perfect substitute for those trying to cut down on coffee). I love mixing it with nettles and rose hips to boost my energy and immunity.
