Episode 033: Herbal Contraception: Wild Carrot Seed
Eons ago our grandmothers knew which plants to take to discourage implantation and encourage menstruation. Most of that knowledge was lost to time yet there are tantalizing clues, rumors and stories of plants that allowed women more control over their fertility.
In this fascinating conversation between my special guest Robin Rose Bennett and I, you’ll discover a modern day plant that is used by some as a form of contraception. While this method of contraception isn’t for everyone, Robin shares who can use it safely, who should avoid it and how to use it to increase or decrease fertility as desired. Join us for this surprising conversation on how to use a common weed as a method of birth control.
