Over the years, I have tried a variety of natural and organic products, because I care about what I am putting on and into my body. While some were okay, many just smelled or tasted…weird. I always had high expectations and was subsequently disappointed when I actually tried the product. Why did I have to sacrifice flavor or aroma just to keep harsh chemicals away?
Then I found Anna Naturals! I was skeptical at first, thinking “oh just another company producing natural products” – but wow, was I wrong! From their herbal teas, to their lotions and soaps – these products may be missing the harsh chemicals and additives but they are certainly NOT missing taste or scent. What’s great is that they have developed products specifically for women, and even have a portion of their line dedicated to pregnant, nursing and new moms. I think it’s always important to try to use natural and organic products, and especially so when you’re expecting or breastfeeding, so it’s great they offer these products.
The Anna Naturals line of herbal teas is nothing like I’ve seen before. They have four categories of teas:
- Everyday Blends – for any woman, anytime. These teas help with things like painful menstrual cycles, getting more energy and stamina throughout the day, and helping to get a better night’s sleep.
- Pregnancy Blends – for, well, when you’re preggers. Each blend is safe to use during pregnancy and helps to provide additional vitamins and minerals to your body, and can help to fight nausea and morning sickness.
- Postpartum Blends – for after your little bundle of joy is born. With a blend to help with the recovery after delivery, to one for helping produce more milk for nursing mothers, and even a blend to help stop milk production for weaning moms – Anna Naturals has your needs after having a baby covered.
- Menopause Blends – for dealing with the symptoms of menopause. There are blends to help combat hot flashes, aide in getting a good night’s sleep, and even one to balance out mood swings and promote hormonal balance.
So I said before that I was very surprised at the taste of Anna Naturals’ herbal teas, and that is because most herbal teas just simply taste gross. Have you ever tried red raspberry leaf tea? Or any of the lactation teas out there? If not, I’ll save you the trouble – don’t. It tastes like you are drinking herbs, and who want’s that? With Anna Naturals’ teas, though, they are infused with flowers, citrus and fruit to create amazing tasting blends that are wonderful to drink. Breastfeeding moms – you HAVE to taste their Nursing Mama tea. It’s delicious!
I’ll quickly touch on their bath and body products, so you can get a sense of their full line of products. Anna Naturals offers traditional bar soap, in both all natural and organic scents, which contain no harsh chemicals and are naturally scented. While definitely not as strong as an artificially scented soap, the scents are marvelous and do actually last on your hands. Their lotions also are free of harsh chemicals, including sulfates, parabens, and GMO’s, and they are scented using essential oils. As with the teas, there is a set of bath and body products just for pregnant and nursing moms called Smooth Mama and Clean Mama. These are also more lightly scented than their regular, Just Right line, keeping in mind a sensitive pregnant nose!
