Bursting with powerful galactagogues, these three lactation tea blends are loaded full of nutrient rich and milk promoting herbs. They are incredibly nurturing blends that benefit body, soul and boobies!
With all 3 blends you have an amazing wide assortment of galactagogue herbs. You have the super supply boosting ability of the Fenugreek free Blend 1 and Blend 2 from our Breastfeeding Tea Supply Booster Kit with the added kick of our traditional Fenugreek Blend 3.
Fenugreek is the traditional and original supply boosting herb, recommended by midwives and lactation consultants and used by breastfeeding mums for centuries. It is one of the most well known herbs used for its supply boosting ability (1).
Fenugreek when combined with Blessed Thistle like in our Blend 3, increases both of these herbs supply boosting abilities.
Fenugreek is believed to increase milk supply due to its ability to stimulate sweat production as the breasts have been likened to modified sweat glands.
Blend 3 is a traditional lactation tea recipe, used for centuries, when Fenugreek works, it works extremely well and quickly (24-72 hours). Alternating blends with one cup of each blend (e.g Blend 1 in Morning, Blend 2 in afternoon and Blend 3 in evening) is a great way to ease into it to make sure the increase is gradual. Or you can use Blend 3 for a short period of time to try to rapidly increase supply and then maintain with our other two blends.
You can of course drink one blend at a time to work out which one works best for you, the decision is yours!

Fennel: an essential ingredient in any mothers milk tea recipe, fennel can soothe the tummy of colicky babies and is believe to aid in the flow and production of milk.
Nettle: A favourite galactagogue used to support milk supply, it is also rich in iron, calcium and folic acid.
Alfalfa: A super nutritious powerhouse full of vitamins and minerals, it is said to use with caution if you already have a good supply of breastmilk to not cause oversupply when using alfalfa.
Anise: Is a traditional European herb used to increase milk flow and soothe gassiness and colic in babies.
Marshmallow Root: A demulcent herb that soothes and moisturisers the body making it a beautiful sweet addition to a nursing tea blend.
We use herbs in our daily life to help with the common cold or to keep us healthy and prevent sickness. It makes sense that herbs can also help with milk supply. Just like some herbs can have a negative effect on milk (avoid sage and peppermint! - don't worry we don't use these), other herbs can have a positive impact. Using herbs in culinary quantities also delivers lots of other nutrients in our diet which are important for the breastfeeding mum.
Do I need other products to boost my supply?
We strongly suggest that if you are needing to increase your supply, that you use multiple products to ensure you get the maximum boost. All our products will work in isolation but if you have multiple cups of breastfeeding tea with a few lactation cookies and a delicious sweet and creamy choc malt supply boosting hot chocolate, then you can be confident you are including a full range of lactogenic herbs and foods in your diet that will benefit your breast milk supply.
Our products may help:
- If you're trying to establish your supply and/or increase milk
- When you need to increase your pumping output
- When bub is going through a growth spurt and you need more milk
Cups of tea go cold on the bench?
No problem! We get it! We are busy mums too! You can steep your tea and forget about it! Keep it in the fridge for a ice cold tea with honey or have it on hand to reheat when you want a warming cup of tea.
Not a tea fan or want something sweet, creamy and delicious?
Our lactation chocolate malt mix is the perfect alternative! Drink it hot or cold.
Please always consult a IBCLC if you are worried about milk supply. Lactation support products should be used in addition to correct latch and milk withdrawal methods not in replace of. These are support products, not magical fixes. This information is not medical advice or intended to treat, diagnose or cure disease.
Please always consult your health care provider before beginning any new herb.
Fenugreek is often not advised for women with PCOS and endocrine disorders, however some ladies do still drink it, talk to your health professional if you are unsure if fenugreek is right for you as every person is different.
