Hand blended herbal tea (tisane) designed to support healthy breastmilk production.

    • Alfalfa Leaf is a superfood and phytoestrogen meaning it can mimic estrogen and attach to receptor sites in our body. Estrogen is the most critical hormone for breast milk production and supply.
    • Blessed Thistle is commonly used as an herbal galactagogue {food, herb, or medication that increases the flow of breast milk, usually by increasing prolactin levels}. Boosts prolactin, which boosts the milk supply and oxytocin which enables the release of milk from the nipples.
    • Fennel Seed is believed to be a galactagogue as well and its reputation for enhancing breast milk is related to its phytoestrogens, which as mentioned above is similar to the estrogen hormone that is naturally formed by the human body.
    • Fenugreek Seed is a well-known galactagogue, contains phytoestrogen and has been used by lactating mothers to boost breast milk supply for hundreds of years.  Fenugreek contains several flavonoids and vitamins which are beneficial for lactating mothers and a compound called diosgenin which also increases milk flow in lactating women.
    • Hops are a moderate galactagogue and a powerful phytoestrogen and moderate nervine.  Nervines are herbs that act upon the nervous system that are sedating or calming which may help mothers relax enough for easy lactation.
    • Milk Thistle Seed is a galactagogue. paired with fenugreek as there is evidence that they work best together.
    • Nettle Leaf is not only a galactagogue but is also believed to support lactation by providing essential nutrients. It is one of the most nutritious of the spring greens, containing high levels of vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, potassium, folic acid, B vitamins, vitamin K, and essential amino acids. This herb works well with other galactagogues, such as fenugreek, fennel, and blessed thistle.
    • Raspberry Leaf has nutrient-dense properties and because of the huge demand on a woman’s resources – sometimes breast milk is in short supply.  So raspberry leaf can help boost the nutrients that may be needed for ample supply. It is also considered a galactagogue because like some of the other herbs it stimulates the release of prolactin.
    • Shatavari Root is also a well-known galactagogue and research shows that Shatavari can increase breast milk supply by increasing the production of corticoids and prolactin, which improve the quality and the amount of breast milk produced. Shatavari also stimulates the secretion of steroid hormones that improve milk production and also increases breast weight. It is also an adaptogen providing antioxidant properties that help improve the overall health of the nursing mother.
