Ingredients

Healing Properties

Hibiscus: Hibiscus has immune-boosting antioxidants and a mild diuretic effect that reduces swelling. Its gentle laxative properties aid in easing post childbirth bowel movements, while polysaccharides and mucilage soothe inflamed tissues, supporting healing for concerns like tears and sore nipples. It also contains Vitamin C, β-carotene, calcium, and iron. Hibiscus has traditionally been used to support healthy iron levels in people with anemia. 

Red raspberry leaf: Red raspberry leaf is a valuable ally in postpartum health, known for toning the uterus and minimizing postpartum bleeding. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, it aids recovery by replenishing nutrient levels. Its uterine tonic properties may ease afterpains and support overall reproductive health, enhancing a healthy milk supply.

Moringa: Moringa is rich in nutrients vitamins A and C, iron, and calcium. Moringa aids breast milk production with its lactogenic properties, providing essential nutrients for optimal nursing and newborn nourishment. Moringa's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant features aid recovery, while its iron content helps combat postpartum fatigue. As a versatile superfood, moringa can be beneficial for overall postpartum well-being.

Afalfa: Known for its potential to boost energy and support lactation, alfalfa aids in postpartum recovery. Its vitamin K content contributes to blood clotting, addressing potential post-birth concerns. Additionally, alfalfa's anti-inflammatory properties may help alleviate postpartum discomfort.

Nettle stabilizes nerves, regulates mood, and eases stress effects. It nourishes and restores kidneys strained during pregnancy, supports adrenal glands, and aids lactation. Essential post-labor nourishment.

Fenugreek: Fenugreek is widely recognized for its efficacy in supporting lactation. Its galactagogue properties stimulate milk production in breastfeeding mothers, enhancing overall milk supply. Rich in nutrients like iron and magnesium, fenugreek also provides nutritional benefits to both mother and baby.

Fennel: Fennel aids digestion and re-leaves bloating, common concerns after childbirth. It also has galactagogue properties.

Chamomile: Renowned for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties. Its gentle nature aids in alleviating stress and promoting restful sleep, crucial for new mothers. Chamomile's anti-inflammatory effects can also assist in reducing postpartum discomfort. Furthermore, its mild sedative qualities may contribute to overall relaxation.

Calendula: Known for its anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties, may help soothe and support healing after childbirth. Its gentle nature makes it suitable for promoting overall postpartum comfort. Additionally, calendula can provide a calming and emotionally uplifting experience.

Dandelion: Rich in vitamins and minerals, it supports overall well-being and aids in replenishing nutrient stores after childbirth. Its mild diuretic properties may help reduce postpartum swelling. Additionally, dandelion's gentle detoxifying effects support liver function, crucial for hormonal balance.

Oatstraw. Known for its deeply nourishing properties, oat straw aids in restoring nutrient levels depleted during childbirth. Its reputation as a nervine offers potential mood-stabilizing benefits, while its toning properties can assist the uterus in returning to its pre-pregnancy state.

For optimum health and healthy breast milk production, we recommend drinking up to three cups of lactation infusion per day.

Ask the Herbalist

Q: Can I drink the lactation infusion while pregnant?

A: No, this isn't suitable for pregnancy but can be used at full term as a uterine tonic to help tone and assist labour. It's also highly nutritive and rehydrating so great to use as a labour aid if iced or at room temperature.

Q: I don't like fennel and the traditional lactation teas, they make me gag. Will this blend be the same?

A: No! I created this blend specifically with a refreshing and fruity taste and very minimal fennel/fenugreek flavours because personally I couldn't stomach fengreek/fennel heavy lactation teas either. The additional hibiscus/nettle/oatstraw/chamomile adds a beautifully sweet, tangy and grounding profile.

Q: Can I compost my tea bags?

A: Yes! We use bleach free paper tea bags to pack our herbs into individual servings. This is the most eco friendly option we have found so far without keeping it as a loose tea (which we would prefer but realistically what new Momma has time to be brewing and straining a pot of loose tea?!).=

Q: Is this safe for my toddler to drink? She always likes to sip my 'flower' tea when I am drinking it.

A: Yes! The lactation infusion is safe for kids to drink and is a great way to get in some extra nutrients into their beige diet and introduce them to herbs!
