WARNING: Talk to your Doctor/Medical Professional before

adding any Supplements, herbal teas, Infusions, etc. ​

Part of the reason that we list Medical Jargin is because many plants can interfere with or even counteract medications we already take or it can exacerbate ailments we already have. 

When talking to your Medical Professional, we suggest asking what "actions" an herb might do to interfere with your health, either positive of negative. For example, if you suffer from heartburn, a Cholagogue which creates more bile may not be advantagous. Too much of a good thing, eh?

Warning: Pregnancy + Medication Interaction + Blood Thinner

Red clover is a blood thinner. While this is a warning for those on blood thinners, it is also important for ANYONE on medications. Blood thinners can change the way that you process your medications and therefore alter your responses to them. Lilith consulted her psychiatrist for her anti-depressants and was warned that red clover could interfere. 

We overall do not suggest it's use outside of ceremonial purposes and tools for your craft. The Bat & Raven only uses red clover in our candle blends.
