Organic Raspberry Leaf
herb has connections to motherhood back to antiquity. In ancient
Greek mythology, the nursemaid to Zeus pricked hr finger on
the thorns of the raspberry, and her blood dyed the berries
red. Logically enough, raspberry leaf is a good component for
fertility charms. In Hoodoo, a woman can make a bath of raspberry
leaf to keep her man at home and to solidify her marriage. A
Venus herb, raspberry leaf has a tradition of use with pregnancy, in particular,
with aiding delivery and with increasing the production of milk.
Some also use it to ease menstruation. A tea is made from 1
teaspoon leaves to 1 cup boiling water; infuse for 15 minutes.
Usually 1 cup is drunk three times a day, but you can also make
this a spiritual aid by drinking a cup while meditating on the
Empress from the Tarot.
