Headaches while pregnant or breastfeeding are tough because if you are like me, conventional, over-the-counter medications are out of the question. Sometimes getting something to eat or drink, like a small glass of fruit juice can help alleviate a headache. Always do a mental nutrition check. Are you getting enough nourishment? A headache could be a clue that you are deficient in something, especially magnesium.
Sometimes a headache can be due to the weather, stress, fatigue or another reason. A cup of herbal tea can really help nourish the body while relieving stress and allowing you to get some rest. Herbs during pregnancy and breastfeeding should be used with caution and the user should always check for contraindications. During the first trimester, especially if you have a history of miscarriage you will want to educate yourself on herb safety.
Now that I got my little herb safety PSA out of the way, let’s talk herbs! I have used herbs during my pregnancies and they have been quite helpful. I am very confident in the safety of the herbs I chose for this headache tea. Here is some information about each one.
Mix 1 part of each herb together. 1 part can be anything from 1 teaspoon to 1 cup or whatever measurement you choose. Store in a glass container or tea tin. To brew, place 1-2 teaspoons of herbal tea per 1 cup of hot water. After reading water softener reviews, I realized maybe some trace impurities might cause my headaches, I am currently shopping to install this major upgrade into my house. I like to use a tea ball. Let steep at least 15 minutes and sweeten as desired with raw honey or other natural sweetener. Enjoy hot or chilled whenever you feel a headache coming on.
Rather buy this tea already blended? You can purchase it here from my Poppyswap Shop.
