The ingredients in Anya’s Calming Tea nutritionally replenish your body's ability to manage the stress of new motherhood, and the practice of drinking tea for postpartum recovery is longstanding among doulas, midwives, and cultures around the world.
To develop our Calming Tea, we worked with an herbalist to prioritize the most effective ingredients and blends to support mood, emotional well-being, sleep, and mild stress relief.
Steep in boiling water for 5-10 minutes and enjoy. Drink hot or cold.
Our herbalist-formulated blend of 100% organic herbs includes chamomile and lemon balm to promote relaxation and nettle leaf to deliver key nutrients that are often depleted in women after childbirth.
As one of the oldest traditional healing supplements, Chamomile has been used by women in the postpartum period for centuries. Its calming and soothing effects have also been linked to helping with inflammation, muscle spasms, wounds, gastrointestinal disorders, and hemorrhoids.
This herb has been used since the middle ages to reduce stress and anxiety, promote sleep, and ease pain and discomfort from indigestion. Lemon balm has been shown to significantly increase calmness and alertness in clinical studies.
A favorite among midwives and herbalists for use with pregnant and new mothers, nettle leaf offers nutritive benefits that support organ and hormone function with essential micro-nutrients, minerals and vitamins that contribute to the nervous system’s overall function and ability to regulate. In our blend, nettle works with the other ingredients to support a reduction in anxiety, soothing and calm.
Our 100% organic certified blends adhere to strict production processes. We take it a step further and test each finished batch again for heavy metals, pesticides and gluten.
Our custom tea blends were developed by herbalists to determine the most efficacious herbs and dosages. We work with a family-owned tea blender in Highland, New York to produce our 100% organic blends, who makes it their mission to develop deep source connections and personal relationships with artisan tea growers and single-family estates throughout the world that use only organic sustainable agricultural practices.
Our teabags are made from certified biodegradable mesh that comes from sugar cane. Our tea pouches are made with recyclable plastic. Our shipper box was designed purposefully for minimal waste. We will continue to make it a priority to find ways to reduce our ecological footprint when it comes to our packaging, supply chain and manufacturing processes.
Yes, all of our products are designed to be taken together or at the same time. We have worked with nutritionists and doctors to ensure that all of our products can be taken together, and combined dosages (particularly with the vitamins, tonics and teas) are appropriate for postpartum and breastfeeding women.
We know time is the last thing you have, our Anya subscription was designed to deliver what you need when you need it. Our products were designed to work together, so at this time, we are not selling products individually. However, our Postpartum Recovery Plan is completely flexible. You can edit the 3 products you receive each month, anytime.
Here's what we did to ensure product safety. First, we verified every single ingredient, dosage and product form we used in each product with a toxicologist. Then, we reviewed our product formulas with OB-GYN's, dermatologists and nutritionists for sign-off on safety for breastfeeding mothers. Next, we did 3rd party safety testing on each product to determine the products are pesticide free, non-GMO and gluten-free. As with taking any supplement or using any product while breastfeeding, if you have any questions, it's always a good idea to consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
Our tonics are a liquid dietary supplement containing a proprietary blend of vitamins and herbs.
Yes, all of our products are 100% vegan. We take pride in the fact that we worked to find animal-free alternatives to so many products that are commonly found in the market - from bovine gelatin capsules, to lanolin-derived vitamin D, every single ingredient in our products is 100% vegan.
All of our products are made in the U.S. in cGMP certified manufacturing facilities.
We encourage everyone, especially if you have allergies, to review our supplements facts panels for a list of all ingredients included in each product. Anya products are major allergen free, with the exception of tree nuts from coconuts (highly refined coconut is used in our multivitamin and coconut oil is used in our nipple balm).
We recommend not to use Anya products during pregnancy. All of our products are tested and approved for safety while breastfeeding, however we have not completed testing to ensure safety during pregnancy. While all of our ingredients are clean and non-toxic, we use several herbs in our teas and tonics that are not recommended for pregnant women.
