Looking for a postpartum tea recipe that will help heal your womb after birth? Look no further. This earthy tea has many healing benefits, and consequently has been a staple in the postnatal Ayurvedic pharmacopia since ancient times.
Dashamula is a traditional Ayurvedic formula that specifically removes excess vata from the the pelvic region of the body. Perfect for postpartum healing, it moves energy downward and helps gently release toxins from the body.
Some other important benefits include:
- relieving gas and constipation
- nourishing the tissues of the uterus
- soothing the nervous system
- creating a calming effect on the mind
Drinking this postpartum tea grounds and warms your entire system. My mama clients look forward to it every morning, and I hope you will too!

- Bilva (Aegle marmelos)
- Agnimantha (Premna integrifolia)

- Patala (Stereospermum suaveolens)
- Kashmari (Gmelina arborea)
