Red Raspberry Leaf, Rosehips, Lavender
Being pregnant comes with the added weight of your baby, extra blood volume, the placenta, and maybe even more of you! At the same time, our kidneys are working hard, taking care of 2 people. You may want to order my Fertility Tea Blend as well, which has nettle leaf, so very supportive to our liver and kidneys and circulatory and urinary systems. So, very often, our feet swell, and at the very least, are tired and need love, support, and pampering. This herbal blend is a combination that I created about 28 years ago when I would attend showers and blessing ways for pregnant mamas. It became my signature gift, preparing it and offering it, allowing mama to soak her tired, swollen feet in the warm, not hot, herbal foot bath. Sometimes she would want to be left alone, and sometimes she would want to have her feet lovingly massaged with hands or washcloth. And adding your own fresh flowers to enhance the beauty is a way to be creative and feminine!
To make, place herbs in a cloth bag and tie the ends in a knot. Place the bag of herbs in a pot of water that has been brought to a boil, with the stove now turned off. Let steep for several hours, then take the bag of herbs out, pour warm herbal foot soak into a basin, and heal in luxurious comfort and relaxation!
Red Raspberry Leaf contains properties that soften our skin, and provide bioflavonoids to help heal. She also provides vitamins and minerals that pregnant women need, such as readily available calcium, Vitamin C and E, and these are absorbed through the skin, helping mama to relax and feel nourished.
The essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid (omega-3 and omega-6) found in rosehips, are great for skin. They help to fight against the signs of aging, and also help to rehydrate and nourish dry, cracked or itchy skin. Vitamin A helps to improve the tone and texture of the skin. The anti-inflammatory properties in rose hip seed helps to calm dilated and damaged capillaries. It treats chronic dryness and boosts the immune system.
Beautiful lavender has antifungal and antibacterial properties that reduce inflammation, cleanse your skin, lessen redness and irritation, hastens wound healing, smells delightful, calms, soothes, and research suggests it is useful for treating anxiety,insomnia, depression, and restlessness.
All of my products are made with the freshest, highest quality, either organic or sustainable ingredients, wild-crafted from mother earth when possible, and created with intentions of healing, prayers of peace, and blessings of love.
Please use these products within 3 months.
May you feel and receive the care and connection within each sip, touch, sight or smell.
Sweet Blessings, Lori
