I was thinking about making some for preggo sil and packaging it in a cute tin.
Anyone have recipes?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

There is an excellent book for herbal teas and tonics for pregnant and postpartum woman called Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year. You could probably find it at the library. They have a postpartum depression brew and a nursing formula tea. I'll give you the nursing one - 1 ounce dried Blessed Thistle or Borage leaves, 1 ounce dried Red Raspberry or Nettle leaves, 1 teaspoon fennel seeds.
