Raspberry leaf, happens to be one of the most common herbs It is a gentle yet powerful uterine tonic, it is safe in pregnancy, and when brewed as tea or an herbal infusion it's a good source of dissolved minerals.s benefits for digestion, skin, lungs, and gums. In fact, for many of it's benefits you don't even have to drink it, you can use it as a soak or add it to your bath. I'll explain how.
Supports Menstrual & Uterine Health
Raspberry leaf tea is a classic uterine tonic, used to treat menstrual cramps and irregular cycles. It is a mild but effective remedy, and therefore should be used frequently to gain its benefits. While you may only think to drink it during your period, when you're feeling crampy, try drinking it all cycle long and you'll be much more likely to notice a difference.
Improves Symptoms of Pregnancy
Unlike many other herbs, raspberry leaf tea is not just safe for longterm use, it's safe during all phases of pregnancy, and it's also beneficial for each phase.
It helps to stabilize pregnancy in the first trimester and prevent bleeding or hemorrhage. It reduces nausea and improves digestion. It tones the uterus while it grows and preps it for labor. You can use it at any stage of pregnancy, but I find it particularly important in the first and third trimester. I often include it as part of my Pre-birth Protocol.
it's capable of boosting breast milk supply and actually repairing uterine tissue. I always recommend my patients continue to drink the tea for at least a few months postpartum.
This goes for vaginal and surgical births, both can benefit from the effects of Mommy tea. For surgical births, drinking the tea is generally the best option for helping uterine tissue to heal internally.
For vaginal births, if perineal swelling or tearing is involved, I still recommend drinking it but using the tea topically can also be helpful. This can be done with a sitz bath of raspberry leaf tea, as it also reduces swelling and promotes tissue repair topically.

Although it's not used primarily as a digestive tonic, raspberry leaf tea does have this added advantage. It helps to stimulate and harmonize digestion, particularly helpful for nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation.
You don't have to be pregnant or trying to regulate your period or even a woman to gain this benefit from raspberry leaf tea. In fact, making an infusion of this herb is a healthy beverage for just about anyone.
Soothes Irritated Lungs & Throat
Another use for raspberry leaf is for soothing irritated lungs and throat, especially during upper respiratory infections.
If you have a common cold that includes cough, phlegm, sinus congestion, or sore throat, then make sure to add a few cups of raspberry leaf tea into your routine to keep your lungs healthy. You can also use the tea or infusion as a gargle for sore throat or hoarseness of voice.
Treats Inflamed Gums & Mouth
Similar to how raspberry leaf is used as a gargle for sore throat, it is also particularly good for inflammation of the gums and mouth. Once again, the tea or infusion can be used as a mouth wash or rinse for inflamed gums and mouth sores.
Of course, you can also simply drink the tea for it's benefit to the mouth and gums.
Calms Irritated Skin
You thought I was done, didn't you? Nope! Raspberry leaf is also helpful for soothing inflamed skin, which could mean dry or flaky skin, sunburn, eczema, itchiness, rashes, or most common types of skin problems.
