Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora): Skullcap is a premier nervine. It has a wonderful way of calming and centering the nervous system.

Raspberry Leaf (Achillea millefolium): Raspberry leaf tea has been used for centuries by midwives to help women at various points during their fertility cycle. Also called the Woman’s Herb, Red Raspberry leaf tea cleanses the blood of excess hormones and corrects estrogen-progesterone hormonal imbalances. Rich in tannins and fragarine, this tea combats nausea, cramps and diarrhea. In cases of heavy bleeding, the tea helps tighten the pelvic region muscles to reduce cramps caused by intermittent spasms.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium): Yarrow has been used traditionally for painful menstrual cramps. It is antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory in action. This means it aids the muscles of the uterus to work efficiently without spasm and/or cramping up. Uterine cramping and inflammation are the cause of the pain associated with menstrual cramps. Yarrow relieves inflammation and congestion of the uterus, which aids in pain reduction, as well as proper circulation to the reproductive organs.
Lady's Mantle (Achillea millefolium): Lady's mantle is an astringent and helps to reduce heavy blood flow.
Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla): The antioxidants present in chamomile tea calm abdominal discomfort, ease menstrual cramps and controls negative mood fluctuations.

Chamomile is a hormone balancer and works to sort out dysfunctional hormones that could be causing irregular cycles.
