Q: Are there any teas that are safe to drink while pregnant?
A: Yes - Camomile and Peppermint are safe to drink during pregnancy, plus Raspberry Leaf can be used in the 3rd trimester.
Q: Why do some of your extracts contain alcohol?
A: 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.
