black raspberry leaf is a timeless female tonic
it's quietly effective.
it tones + reinforces the female system
specifically in the reproductive realms
but i find it's also an excellent choice for strengthening connective tissues
for women who feel rickety, like they're held together with paper clips and rubber bands.
it can help absorb nutrients better.
i like to use it with stinging nettle + yellow dock for ladies that tend towards anemia. (i can blend this for you)
i also invite you to consider brewing it as an herbal tea if these indications speak to you.
i like to think of tinctures as good managers.
they offer the body good guidance, instructions + advice on the path to balance.
sometimes that's just what a person needs. but sometimes we need the more nourishing aspects of plants to come full circle.
black raspberry is a plant that has a lot to offer in both regards. feel free to message me if you're interested in tea.
i try to keep enough wild foraged dried herb in my stock supply for the year.
it's also an abundant + easy to identify plant that i encourage you to seek out for yourself if you live in a conducive area.
dosage is of the essence. it can be astringent in nature. if you take large, strong doses you'll bring out those aspects, especially if you're brewing it as a tea. this could be acutely helpful if you are having loose bowels, or even helpful to use regularly if it's a persistent problem.
this could also be useful if you experience menstrual flooding.
however, if you tend towards anemia or are interested in strengthening your connective tissues, i encourage slow quiet doses.
half a dropper full of tincture twice a day is a good start. you can take it back to 5 drops if you'd like.
you can up it to a full dropper full if you'd like. as you get to know your remedy, you'll start to see what you need.
if you need a bump, have a cup of tea- especially for difficult periods.
also, i consult for free for your safety and benefit. i want you to have the most minimal + effective remedies for your specific needs. everyone deserves a holistic opinion on their situation. please feel free to message me with any questions or for a consultation. be well!
i make products to help you meet yourself where you are,
on your way to where you want to be.
