Lady’s Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris) is a perennial herb found in North America, Europe, and Asia. Its scientific name Alchemilla is a derivative of the Arab word alchemy, because folklore believed the dew that gathers at the center of its furrowed leaves was a key ingredient in several alchemical formulas. The dew was also collected and used for beauty lotions. Pre-Christianity, Lady’s Mantle was associated with Earth Mother, but like many pagan symbols and rituals as Christianity spread it was absorbed. The cape-like shape of the leaves were then said to look like the Virgin Mary’s cloak, hence Lady’s Mantle.
Lady’s Mantle is a general guardian and supporter for the female constitution. More precisely the tea is used to treat heavy menstruation, menstrual cramps, and fibroids (benign tumors in or around the uterus). It’s astringent and styptic properties make it an helpful herb also for topical bruises and cuts.
We use organic, dried flowers and leaves for my “Goddess” tea blend.
Red Clover (Trifolium pretense) is a perennial plant belonging to the legume family that grows wild in most temperate climates. Tests have shown that red clover contains isoflavones, plant based chemicals that produce estrogen like effects in the body. Red clover has been used for a long time to help with menopause symptoms like hot flashes or night sweats. It also can delay bone loss associated with osteoporosis
We use organic, dried red clover flowers for our “Goddess” tea blend.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a herbaceous perennial plant with almost feathery leaves that are arranged spirally on the stems. It is a long-stemmed member of the sunflower family and can be found in the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.
Among others, yarrow has antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, carminative properties and has been used to help regulate menses and to regulate cramps and bleeding.
