Cramp bark + Black Haw Tincture
Female Comfort Tea – contains herbs to balance hormones, regulate prostaglandin metabolism, improve circulation to the pelvic area, and tone and relax the excessive contractions of the uterus. The herbs are combined so that the formula treats both the symptoms and the cause of period pain. I recommend drinking this tea all month long.
Cramp bark & Black Haw tincture – the best antispasmodic herbs to relieve period pain and can be taken a couple of days before the onset of your period and continued throughout to help relieve cramps and pain.
Works well with….
Deep comfort Bath & Body Oil. A deeply relaxing body oil that can be massaged into your abdomen or lower back to provide period pain relief.
Wild Nutrition Magnesium – helps relax smooth muscle tissue and has been shown greatly to reduce menstrual cramping. Magnesium deficiency is a leading cause of menstrual cramps and headaches.

Red raspberry leaf:
Red raspberry leaf contains a compound called Fragarine which is known to help tone and tighten muscles in the pelvic region, thereby assisting with the cramps caused by spasms of these muscles. It is also contains high levels of calcium and magnesium. These two minerals are a key factor in preventing muscle spasms and therefore preventing period cramping.

Cramp Bark & Black Haw Tincture
Cramp bark and Black Haw are both antispasmodic herbs that have a relaxing effect on the smooth muscle and can slow or regulate the rate of contractions, both in the case of the uterus and in peristalsis of the bowel. Antispasmodics help alleviate organ pain cause by excessive muscle contraction. When muscle spasm is severe, the blood flow and oxygen supply to the organ is impaired (ischaemia), resulting in pain. Relaxation to the affected muscle brings relief.
Female Comfort Tea - drink a cup a day throughout your cycle and then up to 3 cups a day leading up to your period and during your period to ease any discomforts.
Cramp Bark + Black Haw Tincture - take 1/2 teaspoon in a little water up to 4 times a day as soon as you feel the onset of pain. Reduce the dosage as symptoms abate. If your menstrual cycles are regular, you can start a day or two before the usual onset of cramps. It's best to start tincture before your cramps begin for optimal results.
CAUTION - do not take if pregnant or breast feeding. Avoid if sensitive to salicylates.
