Women’s Ally Tea

An ally appreciated by women, along with lady's mantle's cousins red raspberry leaf and rose petals, this blend of herbs will support menstruation. It will supply needed nutrients through the use of nettle, nurture through linden and collectively help balance hormones and emotions and act as antispasmodic to support the uterus. It is a blend to be used in ritual at this time. 



½ c lady's mantle

½ c nettle

¼ c raspberry leaf

¼ c rose petals

¼ c linden 


Blend herbs in a large bowl, label and store in a jar until needed. 

To make tea, place 4 tablespoons of the herbal blend in a teapot and cover with 4 cups of just boiled water. Cover and steep overnight.  

Strain, add sweetener and drink throughout the day as needed. 


It is safe for most people but not generally recommended during pregnancy until the birthing process starts.
