As a mom of three and a serious breastfeeding madwoman, I’d be lost without my herbal tea for enhancing milk production. I’ve shared this tea with many moms on the verge of losing their milk and have had many fabulous stories. All of the organic herbs in Breast is Best Tea has been used for centuries by European women and are often recommended by lactation consultants for their lactogenic properties.
After checking the prices at my local health store, I decided to make my own tea for nursing moms at a fraction of the cost. I have enjoyed this tea with my two youngest children for years and can attribute my milk production to taking it faithfully.
Here are some of the organic herbs in my Breast is Best Tea:
Fennel seed increases milk supply in nursing mothers, improves digestion, and reduces gas in mother and baby.
Nettle leaf is loaded with minerals that help build/replace the blood lost in childbirth. It also contains high levels of chlorophyll which aids in creating a mother’s milk supply after giving birth.
Many women around the world have taken red Raspberry leaf during pregnancy and after to tone the uterus and to prevent excessive bleeding during childbirth. It is responsible for bringing the milk down and enriching the quality of a mother’s milk.
Dandelion leaf is rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, B1, B2, B3, and vitamin C. Dandelion is one of the best blood and liver purifiers around, making it very important for clean milk production.
Blessed thistle improves blood circulation to the breasts and is effective in reducing flatulence in mother and baby.
Fenugreek seed is a prized herb that has been used in Asia for centuries by lactating women to promote milk production. It is also very effective in reducing flatulence, lowering bad cholesterol, and supporting the liver.
Peppermint leaf is used for nausea, stomach upset, headache, sinus congestion, and gas in nursing moms and children.
I enjoyed this tea 3 to 6 times a day after giving birth, and now I take it 1 to 3 times a day since I am still nursing. When I went back to work full-time, I noticed a drop in my milk production, which devastated me. So I came up with a bit of a plan that worked like a charm. I would take a hot shower in the morning, making sure to let the hot water pour down on the chest area.
While I was showering, I had my tea brewing and would come out of the shower and pump while drinking my hot Breast is Best Tea. Then while nursing the baby, I would enjoy another cup of tea and one more while at work. Then right before bed, I made another cup. I love adding in raw organic milk or rice milk and sweetening with raw organic honey.
This tea has helped many women regain their milk supply, but you don’t have to be nursing to enjoy it. It’s a delicious tea that you can enjoy anytime.

Loved the effects of raspberry leaf tea, but never really needed the others – I had over-active let down and probably too much milk! It is so good to find other people who are on the breastfeeding wavelength.
Thanks for your comment. Yes, red rasberry leaf tea is a great tea that I have taken in previous years. That’s why I decided to add it to my Breast is best Tea when I was testing formulations. My son is 14months and still nursing! Mom Power! Its hard but good for both of us.
Good for you. Yes, I’ve found I was (am) more tired (while breastfeeding) the older our children got – and toddlers are not very discreet…but I agree, it’s so good for us both. Why not.
