A tea blend for menstrual cramps (period pain) which helps relax the blood vessels and ease the contractions while preventing excessive bleeding and providing nourishment with essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients necessary for optimal body function. For best effect, start drinking this tea for cramps a few days before your period arrives.
Add the herbs in an infuser, add boiling water (about 12-14 oz / 375 - 414 ml ) and let steep, covered, for several minutes. Usually 15 minutes should be enough. Covering it helps keep the volatile oils in the herbs from evaporating into the air with the steam.
Keep the leftovers for up to 24 hours, and you can warm it up the next day too. Try to drink 2-4 cups a day, during period cramps.For avoiding the cramps next time, make the tea and drink 2 days in advance (3 cups a day) and if necessary during the menstrual days as well. Or at least until pain subsides.
The efficacy and therapeutic effects of herbs largely depend on their quality, that can vary from batch to batch due origin, processing method and storage. Therefore it's essential to choose organic herbs over conventional.Also buying tea in bulk (loose leaves) assures a superior product.
