Awhile back, Giselle, the owner of Granola Babies natural parenting store went to place an order for dried Chamomile and while shopping for other herbs online, thought, “wouldn’t it be great to have a place where you could go learn about herbs, smell them, try them, and learn more about their medicinal uses?” And thus was the beginning of Granola Babies’ Herbal Bar!
Their organic herbs are available per ounce and are stocked with medicinal herbs commonly used during pregnancy and motherhood. Some of their herbs they offer and uses include:
Chamomile Flowers: Chamomile is known to relax nerves, reduce inflammation, clear toxins and promote tissue repair. Chamomile is relaxing for both children and adults, and can also be used for pink eye (do not take if you are allergic to ragweed.)
Blessed Thistle: Blessed Thistle infusions have been used for centuries to increase milk supply in nursing mothers. Blessed Thistle is also used to treat digestive ailments.
Nettles: Nettle leaf boosts immune system and can be used as well for skin irritations. It’s also used for hair and the scalp to promote hair growth, hair thickness and can prevent dandruff.
Raspberry Leaf: Raspberry Leaf tea is used to treat canker sores, cold sores and gingivitis in people of all ages, and anemia, leg cramps, diarrhea, and morning sickness in pregnant women, and as a uterine relaxant.
These are just a few of their herbs, click here for the entire list and their uses.
The herbs are $2 each per ounce. You can learn more and try them in store as well as purchase them through Granola Babies online.
