FAQs

Are there any teas that are safe to drink while pregnant?

Yes – Camomile and Peppermint are safe to drink during pregnancy, plus Raspberry Leaf can be used in the 3rd trimester.

Why do some of your extracts contain alcohol?

Alcohol extracts substances that water alone cannot extract (polar substances) and also acts as a preservative. For example, Swedish Bitters extract contains 40% v/v (per volume) alcohol, also known as ethanol, but when taken as directed, it will not make someone intoxicated.
