There are many nourishing and tasty teas that serve as general tonics for the reproductive system and the endocrine glands. When using these teas as a tonic for the reproductive system, it is necessary to drink two to four cups daily for an extended period of time (two to three months).
Herbs work surely and steadily, but not overnight. To make it easier to prepare and drink your tonic teas, make at least a quart at a time. I suggest making your tea in the evening and letting it infuse overnight in a quart canning jar. The next morning, warm it, strain, and pour it into a thermos. It will be hot and ready to drink whenever you wish.
