I’ll always do my best to label all my products as clearly as possible but I do trust each individual customer to pay particular attention since all my tea blends comprise at least 5-7 different herbs, of which some are more obscure than others.
So please, do double check before buying or consuming any of my products.
I’ll always be available for any question but ideally contact your GP if unsure.
Also, bear in mind that being a tiny one-woman business operating from home, it is more likely for cross-contamination to occur.
Therefore, if allergic to any ingredient I source the safer choice will always to avoid them all rather than taking an unnecessary risk.
Now, there are some herbs that, if you suffer from allergies, you should probably avoid unless said otherwise by your GP.
If you are allergic to ragweed avoid the following (all in the ragweed plant family):
- Milk Thistle
If you are allergic to latex avoid:
- Dandelion (I know, weird, right? Well, apparently latex can be produced from certain species of dandelion. Best to avoid it altogether).
- Poppy and Poppy seeds
If you are allergic to aspirin, avoid:
- White Willow Bark
- Red Clover
Although, I will say that these herbs contain acetylsalicylic acid and not salicylic acid (which is the allergy-causing component of aspirin), so it’s worth trying these herbs for pain relief or getting tested to see if you’re allergic to both acids.
This is not an extensive list. Again consult your GP if in doubt.
