  • 1 part Oatstraw
  • 1 part Lemon Balm
  • 1/4 part Spearmint

Mix the herbs by hand in a large bowl until well blended.  Use the moment as a meditation if you like, appreciating the herbs as allies for your health and for your baby’s health.  Place 2 tblsp of the blend in a 1 quart jar.  Cover with boiling water, place the lid on the jar.  Steep 15 mins-4 hours, or even overnight for an extra-potent tea.  Drink up to one quart throughout the day.  Can be consumed hot or cold, as preferred.  Store the remaining herbs in a clean dry jar for future use.

This tea is a nourishing blend containing calcium, magnesium, iron and gentle nervous system and stomach supporting herbs.  It is considered to be safe by many herbalists to use throughout all stages of pregnancy *however* always consult your care provider before use if you are taking other medications or supplements.
