I wanted to thank you for the amazing service - I placed the order on Wednesday, 2 days after my due date. Our daughter was born on Thursday morning, and my Post Natal Bliss herbs were delivered the same morning - perfectly on time, so I could start using them straight away. I loved the Babymoon Bliss tea, the Post Natal bath mix, and the peri bottle was super-handy for the hospital to speed up the healing of the grazes. It is not very often that you see service providers going an extra step for their customers, and I wanted to thank you again for taking that extra step and sending my order to me so quickly -probably before you even received the money transfer! I am definitely going to recommend you to all my pregnant friends/family, and will be happy to be your customer again. - Anastasia

Mamas everywhere are lucky to have you - I reckon that for quite a few, your teas and bath herbs are their "treats", an oasis in the desert some days lol. And for those women you support in their journeys, I hope they realize how lucky they are to have the support of such a dedicated, knowledgeable and wise presence. You are "with woman" and that is something that is becoming rare, and something you should be truly proud of. - Jen

Blissful Herbs provides a truly wonderful service for women. During my fourth pregnancy I learnt about the Pregnancy Bliss tea and decided to try it out. Although I was taking iron supplements, these have negative side effects with only moderate results so I was really keen to also try a natural approach to supporting iron absorption as well as other vital nutrients.
I was approaching the third trimester when I ordered the tea, studying full-time at university, raising three children and still breastfeeding my youngest child. I was tired, my house was a mess, I struggled to study at night and the couch seemed like my best friend! However, within a week of drinking the Pregnancy Bliss tea it felt like the fog of exhaustion began to lift. I started to feel really good physically but just as important was the mental clarity that returned, helping me to retain information as I prepared for university exams.
I continued to drink the tea daily, enjoying both the taste and the knowledge that it was providing health benefits as well. Now 13 weeks post-partum and I am still drinking this tea. I also love the Babymoon Bliss tea and should mention the 'peri bottle' is fantastic for after birth as well. Thank you for your time and care in preparing your teas and products Julie, I am a very happy customer and recommend your website to other mothers whenever I can. - Kate Emerson - doula, nursing student, mother of four

I started arranging / organising / sorting out my birthing stuff today and am in love all over again with the smells of those Post Natal Bliss bath herbs - such a sweet sweet smell and so many lovely memories from bathing in the beautiful herbal water with a very teeny baby girl. The room in which I had stored all the birth and baby things in (closed most of the time - spare room / guest room / storage room lol) smelled divine on walking in there, the herbs had left their gorgeous scent all through the entire room! - Amy xxx

I feel a bit like a tea junkie (Ive started first with your Pregnancy Loss Solace tea over a year ago. I really feel good during this pregnancy and our little baby is growing well and I honestly believe your teas and advice have been a big part of this. Thank you! - Megan.

Thank you again for my beautiful package which arrived in the mail today. I woke up so excited today hoping I would get it today as I ran out of my Pregnancy Bliss tea yesterday. Open the package and it smells divine (as always).
And thank you very much for including a little extra something in there for me which I didn't order. Very generous indeed. I love your products so much and the fact you used recycled goods to package and also for your information. I recommend your services and products to anyone interested. Thank you again. Jade.

A massive thank you for the beautiful package that arrived today! I can't wait to use it and finally clear up my infection that has been lingering for 20 months. I wish I had known more about your products back then! I will definitely use them next time. Regards, Jo

I would like to vouch for the effectiveness of the Brain Power tea. I'm a businesswoman in the IT industry and a mother of young children. For the past couple of years, I've noticed my thinking was often foggy and I had problems with memory, creative thinking and just felt plain tired. My mind was ltting me down in several areas of my life.
Julie mixed me a special brain power blend without Ginko (since it gives me a headache) and with schisandra berries.
I have been taking the tea daily for a week and have noticed:
- increased speed in creative thought and problem solving
- improved concentration and focus
- better conversational skills
- better mental stamina
- vivid, memorable dreams (an added bonus, as previously I could never remember my dreams).
I have been absolutely amazed at the effectiveness of thie blend. To be honest, I didn't think it would make much difference but I was a bit desperate as my work was struggling. But my partner has commmented on the difference and I have noticed significant differences already. I have already recommended this tea to my best friend. I would say, to anyone who's suffering from foggy brain, definitely give it a try as you have nothing to lose.

I have been purchasing your herbal teas and peri care kits for a few months now for my business. WOW the feedback especially on the peri care kits has been wonderful and all 100% positive! My clients are astounded just how this product has helped them after delivering their baby. Your work and products is amazing. Thank you so much

I absolutely love your teas. I have been drinking the pregnancy loss solace tea and have found it really helping my womb. I'm enjoying blessing new mums with your mastitis teas and the feedback has been positive so far. My sister didn't need more antibiotics as she was drinking the tea and using the blitz soak. Thank you Julie. I'm so greatful.

So grateful for these post natal herbs and teas from Julie Bell. When I was pregnant with my first Aqeel and was pretty upset by the hospital system and how unsupported it felt, I had a dream about Warburton and one day I just typed in Melbourne doula in Facebook and what to do you know, this birthing angel lived in Warburton a place I had never even been to. I knew I was being guided and so I rang her still nervous cuz I was a first time mother not even sure what questions to ask. She talked to me for 40 minutes even though she didn't know me from a bar of soap and here I was a mamma letting her know the reason I was ringing her was cuz I had a dream about Warburton and I was exploring my options for birthing naturally at home. Her passion for natural birth and her kindness and generosity of spirit was just so refreshing. My 1st baby chose her as my doula and I am so so grateful for her services and amazing grassroots business that's got raving fans because people come first and her customer service is just excellent. When I told Julie I could have baby #2 any day now she had my pack express posted with some goodies thrown in too. With Aqeel i did tear slightly and was able to avoid having to have stitches - all I had was these Blissful herbs and tea and Manuka honey and healed naturally within a few days. Feeling so grateful xx do yourself a favour and check out http://melbournedoula.blogspot.com.au/ and get your hands on these herbs x I love the written descriptions of what each herb assists with and feel so much more ready for baby #2. Thank you Julie for your work in the world. Nadhira

Just a quick one to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Received my order today, and everything is just wonderful! Have taken a photo of all the products together to share with my followers and I will do a thank you post on your page.

The umbilical cord tie is PERFECT by the way, and made me quite emotional to think of using it on my baby boy soon. Thank you for the gorgeous soap, too!

I last reviewed Blissful Herbs while pregnant in 2013 when I purchased a tea to try and help calm my vomiting. 4 years on and I am still very happy with the blends Julie creates. Julie is very professional and always happy to answer any questions. Even tweak her blends to suit my tastes or needs. My only criticism is she lives so far away from me but thankfully she posts! Crystal.

Beautiful products & lovely service. I have used the teas and baths in both pregnancies and absolutely love them, such a great product and support. I have now got some other teas to drink following the birth of my baby to support me during that time and am looking forward to trying them. Julie is lovely and very helpful with any questions or decisions on what is the best product for you and your family. Thank you so much xx
