Shatavari is probably the single most important Ayurvedic herb for mothers. It is nourishing from pre-conception through pregnancy and then through breastfeeding. It is extremely cooling, nurturing, and deeply nourishing. It has shown potent galactogogue qualities in both animals and humans. It works by providing the bod the qualities it needs in order to create abundant mild. (some of the other herbs in this blend work to cleanse the breastmilk or to promote milk flow, but this one in particular helps to actually create the milk).
Moringa is another herb that is revered for supporting the milk supply through it's deeply nourishing qualities. It's been shown to increase milk supply by as much as 100%. It is a potent source of vitamins and minerals and is supremely supporting to health and vitality. Many nursing mamas become depleted and moringa will help to remedy that (on top of helping with the milk supply!)
Gudduchi and Anantamul are both tri-doshic (energetically balanced) and nourishing, but have the special characteristic of being cleansing to the breast milk. This allows better quality milk to pass on to the baby. If breast milk is too heavy or too hot, it can can tummy issues with the baby.
Fenugreek works to increase the secretion of breast milk by opening the channels in the breasts. Some people report that fenugreek doesn't work for them and that is because they are opening the channels in the breasts, yet they don't actually have any milk! This formula ensures that we provide herbs that create milk combined with herbs that stimulate milk flow, so that should not be an issue.
Goat's rue is another potent galactoguge that has been shown in testing to effectively increase the milk supply. It also has shown potential in enlarging the breasts themselves.
Marshmallow is another galactogogue that increases the efficacy of other herbs and also increases hydration within the body.
Black sesame seeds are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. They are very nourishing to the bones and hair and also have shown to increase the milk supply.
Fennel is another galactogogue that also helps increase the flow of milk out of the breasts and opens the channels in the breasts.
Cardamom is a synergizing herb, allowing the other herbs in the formula to work more effectively.
Directions for use;
Pour desired amount into a glass and cover with hot/ boiling water. Let cool to a drinkable temperature. Drink and enjoy! You do NOT need to drink the powder at the bottom to get the full benefits! If you want to, you can pour another cup of hot water over the remnants and make another cup of tea! Some people take as little as 1/4 tsp all the way up to 2 tsp per day! There is a huge variation.
Like all of our blends, our recommendation is to take this intuitively! The amount you need to heal will be totally unique to YOU! It is not a matter of whether or not herbs work, it is a matter of proper dosage and also of taking the proper herb! The amount you need to heal may be HALF or DOUBLE what someone else might need! Trust yourself. If you feel you need more, take more! This is how you will heal! Herbs are VERY often chronically under-dosed. We make our blends VERY energetically-balanced to ensure that you will be safe to play around with dosages.. But ALWAYS pay attention to your body, if something is or isn't making you feel good- PAY ATTENTION TO THAT!
We gladly exchange if you feel that you are not taking the appropriate blend. That being said, please check in with yourself and your body prior to making a purchase because we use very expensive herbs and hate to waste.
