Herbal immune boost tea

I'm a tea drinker!! Love it! Especially making it myself and knowing exactly what's in it! It makes me happy to sit down to a nice warm cup of tea and read a good book! Since fall is coming and tea is (so to speak) is 'season', plus the cold and flu season is coming what could be better then an immune boosting tea?? ;-) So here ya go, one of my favorites! ;-)

Immune boost tea:
1 1/2 cups red raspberry leaf
1/2 cup alfalfa leaf
1/2 cup nettle leaf
1/2 cup peppermint leaf
1/8 cup yarrow flower
1/8 cup Lemon grass

Mix and store!
 Use 1 teaspoon-1 tablespoon per cup of water depending on how stronge you like your tea to be! Brew as normal and strain off the herbs!

Other tasty herbs you could add: red clover, rose hips, lavender, chamomile, spearmint...

Use dried herbs so the tea will store. 

Life these days!!

Hello beautiful blog readers out there!! I miss you! How has the blogging world be lately?? Have I missed much? Hmm what kind of question is that huh?? There is always new wonderful bloggy things going on!!

I have been so busy with my 3 beautiful little girls lately that blogging has thus fallen off my list of top to do's... But alas I do miss you!! 

Life is busy and full!! Do I have advice on raising toddlers? Do I know how to keep the littles busy and occupied? Have I learned how to be the best mom? Um well I am definitely learning a lot and do have some advice but I am no where near perfect and a typical day has me running around fixing everything in my path but getting nothing done! I'm just like you... I get stressed, I get tired, I get busy! But life is good and full and fun!! I have some fun ideas for posts coming up on health, parenting, and homeschool!! I will try and start posting about once a week so keep watching for posts!! Possible giveaway coming up too!!! :-)

Redeeming Childbirth Giveaway

Now for another fun giveaway!! :-)

Redeeming Childbirth has been such an encouragement and blessing to me! It contains a message in it that isn't talked about much. I think this message needs to be spread. Right now my copy of this book is in the hands of my sister! And I received this book as a gift from a sister in Christ! I have even mentioned to my husband that I would like to give this book to the new mothers at baby showers!

This book is about giving God complete control over your heart, soul, and mind! Through pain in morning sickness or contractions! Learning to lean on Him in all the hard times as well as the good! It's so beautifully written it'll have you in tears at times!

Angie Tolpin has kindly offered to giveaway a signed copy of Redeeming Childbirth to one of my lovely readers!! Thank you Angie! :D

Making Babies Book Review and Giveaway

I now have another exciting giveaway for you lovely "Beautiful Babies" followers and anyone else just now jumping in! I hope you all have enjoyed this series as much as I have!! :-)

Great selection of bulk herbs, books, and remedies. Articles, Research Aids and much more.

Have you read my review on the Making Babies DVD set? Let me just say... If you liked the DVDs you will LOVE the book!!! I think the book is a must for any pregnant woman, pregnant or not!!! It is packed full of recipes and tips!! The recipes include everything from delicious healthy deserts to nutritional fiber!! I have already tried some of the recipes from this book and I look forward to trying more! There is a section in the book for Conception through the first trimester, second & third trimesters, birth through six months, and she also includes her pregnancy cookbook! Which I love! She has amazingly yummy and healthy recipes from Zucchini muffins and chocolate milk, to curry-mango Chicken Salad!! Mmm mmm good! :D

Currently I am making a After Birth Cramping Tincture that I'm excited to try (Yes I did just say excited)!! Only 3 more weeks till the due date people!!

This book is so colorful and packed full of beautiful pictures of Shoshanna throughout her pregnancy and after with her new baby! The recipes are so much fun to look through and so easy to follow! Sometimes I just enjoy sitting down and looking through the book, just to see which recipe I would like to try next!!

In the back of the book there is a section of Did you know? Everything from fertility, cal-mag, energy, colicky baby, heartburn, morning sickness, postpartum depression... ect. Such good information in this book!! I love it!

And then there is this darling Baby Diary that you can fill out while your progressing through your pregnancy!! I haven't touched it yet, because I was so far along in my pregnancy, but it looks like it would be a great memory keeper to do during a pregnancy!! :D
