  • Yeah I tried it and it didnt work. You have to get the tonic/liquid form if you are going to try it. Some people suggest using black & blue and alternating them for 24 hours. However there is some risk in doing this. It can cause you to hemorage during labor.

  • you really need to use both black and blue, but make sure you understand the risks. your midwife or an herbalist should speak to you about these.
