Mothers milk organic herbal tea
Our naturopath formulated Mothers milk organic herbal tea helps maintain healthy breast milk supply. Caraway, fennel, anise and caraway seeds offer therapeutic qualities that have traditionally been used to support healthy lactation and ease digestion for both mother and baby.
Lemon verbena – It has natural galactagogue properties that help to increase the breast milk supply. In addition, Lemon verbena contains soothing and relaxing properties, to make breastfeeding a more harmonious experience.
Nettle leaf – Rich in vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, potassium, folic acid, B vitamins and vitamin K. Nettle will not only nourish mum, but also her growing baby.
Caraway – Traditionally used to stimulate milk production. Caraway seeds have the added benefit of soothing your digestion and can even help to relieve discomfort in breastfeeding babies with colic.
Fennel seed – Another galactagogue from the Mediterranean that has been shown to boost prolactin levels and support milk flow.
Anise – Used in the Ayurvedic tradition for hundreds of years as a galactagogue. Anise contains a compound called anethole that acts as a phytoestrogen, its effects in the body are similar to oestrogen and may help to boost prolactin levels.
Shatavari – Translated as “she who possesses 100 husbands”, implying its ability to increase vitality and support the female reproductive system. Shatavari can help increase breast milk production and can also be used during pregnancy to provide nourishment to both the mother and fetus. It can even help increase libido, fight fatigue and treat PMS.
Blessed thistle – Used by herbalists and naturopaths to enhance milk production in nursing women. It is an excellent appetite and digestive aid and is especially good for breastfeeding women with a low milk supply.

How to brew the perfect cup of tea
Measurements & ratios
The recommended ratio is 1 teaspoon per cup of hot tea. If you like it nice and strong, add an extra teaspoon and brew for the recommended time.
Save your milk for black teas – most green and herbals are best served straight up.
Swill a little hot water in your teapot or cup, then discard. This will keep your teawares from cooling your tea too quickly. Green and herbal teas prefer 80°C, so just combine 20% cold water with 80% boiling water.
- Black tea & Oolong 100°C 2-4 minutes
- Green tea 80°C 1-3 minutes
- Herbal & floral tisanes 80°C 3-5 minutes
- Rooibos & honeybush tisanes 100°C 3-5 minutes
Loose leaf vs. tea bags
One of the main reasons we love loose leaf tea is the flavour. Usually loose leaf tea is higher quality than the tea in tea bags. Sometimes, tea bags are used to disguise lower quality tea leaves, but with loose leaf you can’t get away with that.
Most commercial tea bags are created using plastics, bleaches, glues, staples and other nasty things that are best avoided in your daily cuppa.
Another reason is because we love the environment. We hate to have a compostable material such as organic tea & herbs trapped inside little plastic pouches. Our teas are completely organic, so be sure to empty your loose tea leaves into the compost or the garden.
