Lady’s mantle tea has great results in healing the wounds caused by childbirth, inflammations of the internal genital organs and in uterine atony (the uterine musculature is weak after childbirth). Also, it’s an essential remedy in preventing abortion in pregnant women who are at risk. To tone the uterine musculature, expectant mothers can start drinking lady’s mantle tea starting with month 3 of pregnancy.

Moreover, yarrow acts as a uterine tonic. This plant improves the muscular tonus and stimulates the reproductive activity. The improvement of the uterine tonus is also important for controlling and stabilizing the menstrual flow.

Dead nettle tea is good for the gynecological diseases with a higher level of gravity. This tea is obtained by mixing one teaspoon of this plant with one cup of boiled water. Strain the liquid after 30 minutes. It’s recommended to drink two tea cups a day.

If you have a gynecological problem, you should introduce one of these teas in your diet if you want to see an improvement. Besides this, tea is the perfect beverage for a cold day.
