Red Raspberry - The Righteous Babe
Red Raspberry is a righteous babe. She just gets me. She knows when I'm having a rough day, when my hormones are raging, when I'm joyful, when I'm sensitive, when I need a warm embrace.
My experience with Red Raspberry has been especially transformative in terms of my relationship to my menstrual cycle. I used to suffer from debilitating cramps every month, but with the support of red raspberry infusions, teas and tinctures in the days leading up to and during my period, the pain has evaporated.
Raspberry is the queen uterine tonic. She supports fertility and helps strengthen, tone and support the uterus before, during and after pregnancy. She is high in calcium, which supports the nervous system and provides pain relief (which historically has been used to shorten labor).
This high calcium content also supports bone healing as well as hair, teeth and nail health. But it's not just calcium. She is a nutrient-dense herb, containing Vitamins B, C, A & E as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, selenium, phosphorus and potassium. Wow-za.
Raspberry has a high fragine content, which strengthens the entire pelvic area, including the ovaries. Fragine is also supportive of prostate glands.
Raspberry tea is also used for mouth troubles such as sore throats, canker sores and bleeding gums.
Her astrigent properties support diarrhea and other loose conditions. She also helps control excessive menstrual bleeding. She can also ease rheumatism pains, tummy troubles and cool fevers.
Red Raspberry is a rock'n'roll queen that makes me proud of my beautiful body and all the crazy cool things she does. I love spending time with her.
She will be happy to hang with you too, all you gotta do is ask.
