RASPBERRY LEAF TINCTURE
Red raspberry leaf is traditionally used during pregnancy to tone the uterus, in preparation for labour and birth.
This tincture is a high-potency concentration, replacing the need to drink copious amounts of the herbal tea to achieve the same therapeutic dose. It can be started at any stage of your third trimester, but most commonly women start taking it between 34-36 weeks.
Also known as “the woman’s herb,” it is naturally high in vitamins and minerals we need for female health specifically: magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, and vitamins B, A, C, and E. The high level of B vitamins in particular makes it useful for relieving nausea, soothing leg cramps, and improving sleep.
Raspberry leaf is great for the skin if used externally to sooth sunburn, eczema, and rashes and, when used internally, to help alleviate PMS, menstrual troubles, heavy bleeding and infertility.
Also, swishing raspberry leaf tincture is great for the gums and can help alleviate the symptoms of gingivitis or gum disease.
Recommended dosage: 1-2ml taken in a small glass of water or juice 2 x daily on an empty stomach for better absorption.
