i have been drinking a blend that a local person makes loose, it has raspberry, oats, ginger, a few others. it is good. i wanted to add more nettles so this week i started brewing up a strong nettle and bit of peppermint and putting it in the fridge. yesterday i could not figure out why i had horrible heartburn as i don't usually, even in pregnancy. i kept going over all the foods i ate to figure it out and then realized it was the peppermint! duh, i know that, it relaxes the top sphincter of the stomach and aggravates heartburn. so pay attention to peppermint in formulas! i will add something else to it today. raspberry leaf is esp important in the last month of pregnancy to help tone the uterine muscles.
