Ask a Brit and they’ll tell you a cup of tea solves any problem in life. Though there is actual scientific basis on this–particularly when it comes to period pains. A cup of raspberry leaf tea, for instance, is known for acting as a uterine tonic. These raspberry teas are delicious and you can drink them whenever you want, but keep it handy during your time of the month. This herbal tea reduces the pain around the uterine area and helps you relax after a long, stressful day.
Aside from herbal tea, any hot drink will help you feel comfortable and happy (as long as it doesn’t have caffeine in it). Hot chocolate or even a big mug of milky English breakfast tea (decaf of course) will make you feel all warm inside and relaxed. It might not directly cure the pain of your period, but it certainly makes it easier to bear.
