About Me

My photo
God has blessed me tremendously with an amazing husband, Doug, and two gorgeous little boys, Gavin and Joey. It has always been a dream of mine to have a large family but God may have other plans. I had a series of 6 consecutive early miscarriages when trying for baby #2. We are currently trying for baby #3 after our 7th miscarriage. I am faithful that God's plan is perfect, even when I am not happy about it. I love comments and meeting new followers so please don't be shy!

Green Christmas Giveaway Hop: Teas and Steeping Mug

Welcome to the first annual Green Christmas Gift Giving Guide giveaway hop hosted by Home Grown Families and Just My Everyday Life.

Life, Loss, and Other Things Worth Mentioning is happy to be participating with over 60 other awesome sites to show you many ways that you can have an Eco-Friendly Holiday season!

Each blog participating is offering a prize package to a (in some cases, multiple) winner worth $25 or more consisting of Eco-Friendly, sustainable, up-cycled, and recycled items, as well as items from independent consultants, authors and Etsy!

For those of you who may be new to my blog, I had a rough journey with recurrent miscarriages while trying to have my second child.  After trying every medical intervention suggested and having each and every one of them fail, I was hanging onto my sanity by a thread.  My last ditch effort to save my most recent pregnancy was by using herbs.  By the grace of God, after 6 consecutive miscarriages, I gave birth to my second son, Joseph.  

In the last few weeks, my husband and I have started our own business and blog called Chapter One Herbs.  We are selling the same herbal tincture, Welcome Womb, that I believe helped me to stay pregnant along with a variety of other herbal tinctures and teas for starting and growing families.

For this Green Christmas Blog Hop, one lucky reader will get to choose 3 teas (approximately a one month supply of each) from our store, and you will also get this awesome The Tea Spot Steeping Mug perfect for out loose teas!

Now that you will have the perfect tea cup, now comes the tough decision on what teas you think will best fit your mood, your desires, and your taste buds!

If you are trying to conceive or plan to soon, TTC Tea is an excellent blend of 7 herbs that help promote fertility and hormonal balance for the female reproductive system.  Drink this tea 1-3 times daily until pregnant!

Green Tea has a number of health benefits that range from possibly lowering your risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer, as well as potentially aiding in weight loss.  But, what you may not know is that it also has been used to promote fertility.  Green Tea can improve the quality of cervical mucus making it more hospitable for sperm!  If you aren't trying to conceive, it is okay to drink it just because it tastes refreshing!

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea (commonly abbreviated as RRL Tea) is a fantastic way to strengthen and tone the uterus.  It is often credited with helping labor by making contractions more efficient.  Some midwives encourage its use throughout pregnancy, while some prefer it be drunk only in the last trimester.  I started drinking RRL Tea daily at 32 weeks of pregnancy.  I increased the frequency to 2-3 times a day as I got closer to my due date.  I don't know if it was the RRL Tea, but I gave birth to a 10 pound 3 ounce baby boy with only one push in the stirrups!  This is also a great gift idea for anyone who is expecting and/or planning a natural childbirth! 

Peppermint Tea is a favorite for so many because of the menthol aroma and flavor.  Peppermint has been used for years to treat stomach upset, nausea, diarrhea and even headaches!   This is also a great way to end an evening meal.  After all, who hasn't heard of an after dinner mint?

Most people have heard of drinking Chamomile Tea to improve sleep, but it may also ease menstrual cramps, sooth your stomach due to flu or other digestive upset, and help with anxiety.  Also, if you are one of the unlucky people who suffer from migraine headaches, you may find that drinking a cup of Chamomile Tea at the first sign of a headache may be of benefit!  For those who are trying to conceive, this may be your answer to those people who tell you to, "Just relax.  It will happen."

Also, if you order anything from our store, you can use the promo code LLAOT20 to save 20% off of your order!  Best of luck to you and most of all Merry Christmas! After you enter here, be sure to look at the linky below and enter all of the other awesome Green Giveaways!
