A well-matched blend of herbal teas for pregnancy, postpartum, menstruation, and menopause.
The NORA Blend -recommended loose herbs to have on hand:
Nettles (Urtica dioica)
Oatstraw (Avena sativa)
Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus)
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa)
These four herbs combined make a nourishing tea you can safely enjoy throughout your pregnancy, postpartum, menstruation, and menopause (see 2nd page for herb benefits).
*We recommend buying herbs in bulk and storing them in an airtight container.
In pregnancy: Start with one cup per day, increasing to a full quart per day late in your third trimester. Note any side effects and discuss with your midwife.
To make an infusion: place a large handful, about one ounce of herbs to 32 ounces of water, cover with steeping hot water and infuse overnight to extract all the minerals and vitamins needed to support your mind, body, and spirit. **Strain your infusion and store in the refrigerator (up to 3 days). Drink over ice or reheat for warmth, depending on your dosha! Some enjoy adding a touch of mint or honey to lift the earthy essence of this tea.
