The Power of Parsley

Has anybody ever tried drinking parsley tea to induce menstruation?

My eldest daughter did recently, for the first time in her life, based on advice from a friend and guess what? Within 2 hours she was bleeding. That seemed surprisingly fast. *Esmerelda said she wasn’t due until Friday and here it was, Sunday night at 8.

Is this a little bit of magic or is is mere coincidence? Do you know? Do you have any experience with this, either first person on through the sisterhood?

I hadn’t heard this particular old wive’s tale until *Esmerelda asked me if I had, figuring if anybody would know about the miracle of parsley as it relates to a woman’s period, it would be me; a woman who’s business revolves around menstruation.

Nope. I had not an inkling of the power within this herb from the Mediterranean region. Right now thanks to the capricious and sometimes bitchy nature of Mother Nature, I can’t even experiment with it personally. How will I know if it works when I don’t know when my next period will come, or even if it will. Menopause is having a moment in my life.

So, I’m just sharing the very tiny anecdote and hope that should you find cause to try it, remember me, and share your findings.

Just get some dried parsley, place in a meshy tea infuser and let sit in boiled water for 3 to 5 minutes. *Esmerelda added a hit of lemon juice but disclaimer, she adds a hit of lemon juice to a LOT of stuff. Even so, she said it tasted pretty putrid but then again, this isn’t a tea one makes for enjoyment but rather for the benefits therein.

To reiterate, less than 120 minutes after drinking this foul concoction *Esmerelda’s period arrived. For once, it was welcomed with a smile of satisfaction.

Tried or heard about a different means of inducing menstruation? Please do tell.

* My daughter’s name is NOT Esmerelda. Her name has been changed at her request.

Peace, Love & Parsley
