And welcome also to BLISSFUL HERBS, the home of beautiful herbal teas and bath herbs to support wellness through every season of life.

The Carys Blend

This is a special herbal blend made with a lot of love, in the memory of a precious baby girl who was born still. "Carys' is the Welsh word for love and this tea is named in her memory. May it bring some small comfort to other parents who have lost a little one too soon. It contains herbs to nourish the nervous system, balance the hormones after a miscarriage or stillbirth, and provide nourishment to support grief and the healing process of body, mind and spirit.

I contacted Julie after 2 miscarriages, her kindness and knoweledge was amazing. I took her advice and drank Pregnancy Loss Solace religiously. I am so happy to report that I am 18 weeks pregnant and just ordered Pregnancy Bliss tea :) Thank you from the bottom of my heart Julie!!!

I want to thank you for the Carys Blend tea, it has brought me great comfort and I feel much more settled and nurtured after drinking it. I have yet to try the Rest and Heal Bath sachets but I know it will bring me as much comfort as the tea has.
Devastating though this loss is for me and my family, I am infinitely touched and grateful to people like you for reaching out with such caring gestures. It has made me feel supported and less alone through this incredible heartbreak. Thank you.

I heard about your teas as a friend sent me some Pregnancy Loss Solace tea when I had a miscarriage. I just wanted to let you know how lovely and helpful it was to receive something that directly acknowledged and supported my grief.
