The Giveaway

I have decided on my giveaway!  I am going to be giving away some herbs, namely red raspberry leaf, nettle and roses.  These herbs are toning to the female reproductive system and the raspberry leaf and nettles are very nutritious!  I may dry some of my stevia leaf from the garden and throw that in there too so you make some naturally sweetened herbal teas (roses are sweet too BTW).

This giveaway is only for customers who make a purchase from me (any of my stores) between now and August 1st.

Red raspberry leaf is high in iron and calcium is a great treatment for chronic anemia.  It's also safe to use during pregnancy, though it's best to wait until the second trimester before using any herbal supplements.  You may want to avoid all herbs if you have a history of miscarriage, though most herbalists regard this one as safe.  The flavor is similar to black tea.

Nettles are the best land based source of nutrients that I know of.  High in iron, calcium and minerals.  Regular use also helps to fight allergies especially paired with elder flowers to tone the mucous membranes in your respiratory system.

Roses have a beautiful aroma and a sweet flavor, and I like to add it (along with some loose leaf red roiboos tea) to nettles to make a sweeter tea.  They can also be used in skin care-one of my favorites.

I will choose the winner on August 1st and notify you by email, which I will have from the receipt for your purchase.

I have some elderflower syrup from IKEA. I know, I know, not the same thing, but still.

I should have your package in the mail this week. I can't wait until you get the scarves :)
