Foraging for raspberry leaves is easy and fun. Find a raspberry bush away from a road that hasn’t been sprayed with chemicals. Raspberry bushes have hollow bright green stems with tiny green thorns and bright green leaves with three to five serrated leaflets radiating from a central stem. There are free plant identification apps, like Plant ID, that can help you make sure it’s raspberry.
Pick about 2 cups of leaves per bath. Either use the leaves fresh or dry for later use. I spread the leaves out on a cookie tray in bright sun to dry. Make sure they are completely dry and crisp before storing them in mason glass jars. You can also buy high quality, organic raspberry leaves.
Hormone Balancing Bath Instructions
Bring about 1/2 gallon of filtered water to a simmer in a small pot and add raspberry leaves. Gently simmer for 1/2 hour. Either strain the mixture with a sieve and add the herbal water to your bath water, or put the leaf mixture in your bath directly and remove the leaves after bathing.
Enjoy a nourishing cup of raspberry leaf 🍃 tea with your bath. Raspberry leaf tea removes excess toxic hormones from the body and is packed with minerals including natural magnesium and iron. Compost the raspberry leaves after your bath!
Eat some organic raspberries during your bath too. Raspberries balance the endocrine and reproductive systems. According to Anthony William, the Medical Medium, “raspberries are one of the top antioxidant foods and they’re high in ellagic acid which is a medicinal compound that helps to prevent cancer.”

Benefits of Bath Herbs
Raspberry leaves balance hormones and reduce swelling by promoting tissue repair topically. Raspberry leaves soothe inflamed skin, such as dry skin, sunburn, eczema, itchiness, or rashes. When a uterine tonic herb like raspberry leaf is absorbed through the skin directly to the vaginal area, it can help relieve period pain and cramps.
Frankincense essential oil is derived from the gum oleoresin found on the underside of the Boswellia tree’s bark. I’s the perfect addition to your hormone balancing bath because it regulates stress/cortisol levels and may help regulate estrogen production. In a research study, this oil improved fertility and prevented cancer growth.
