Raspberry (Rubus ideaus): Having a wonderfully pleasant taste, it is also good for toning the uterus. It figures prominently in female remedies, during pregnancy to offset morning sickness and miscarriage, and to facilitate delivery. Strawberry leaf (Fragaria vesca): Having vitamins and minerals, it is gentle and nutritious. Peppermint: (Mentha piperita ): Besides tasting great, it also acts as a cooling diaphoretic. It contains highly assimilable vitamins and minerals. Ginger (Zingiber officinale): (You add to the blend) Ginger acts as a stimulant and warming agent. I find it best to use the fresh root, as the dried root changes its energy from warm to HOT. The taste will be very different.
