Whether you're unsure of your supply, struggling with production, or just overwhelmed, breastfeeding can be challenging—and it’s been that way for hundreds of years. Our Lactation Tea uses herbs cultures across the globe have relied on for centuries and proven effective for promoting breast milk production.
Hydration promotes a steady supply (breast milk is 90% water!), which is why we designed our lactation support formula as a tea. Knowing the pitfalls of lactation teas firsthand, we worked with herbalists to create a blend of galactagogues that’s incredibly effective and off-the-charts delicious.
Steep for 5-10 minutes. Drink one cup per day or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
Our herbalist-formulated blend of 100% organic herbs is loaded with 8 milk-boosting herbs including moringa, fenugreek, fennel, caraway seed and blessed thistle plus ginger for a fresh flavor and digestive relief.
Moringa, or nature's "miracle tree" has traditionally been used to supplement the necessary minerals, vitamins and protein in pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Moringa is widely cultivated all over the world where its young seed pods and leaves are used as vegetables, and mothers have used it for generations to support healthy lactation. Moringa delivers anti-inflammatory support, promotes healthy digestion and increased energy, and helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and circulation.
Women have been using fennel to promote breastmilk production for centuries. Fennel, a known galactagogue, is believed to have natural estrogen-like properties and some small studies suggest that fennel may increase levels of prolactin, the main hormone responsible for stimulating milk production.
"A 2018 review of studies Trusted Source of 122 mothers who took fenugreek showed that the herb really did increase — significantly increased, in the words of analysts — the amount of milk they produced. And a 2018 study Trusted Source compared 25 mothers who took a super-mix of fenugreek, ginger, and turmeric with 25 mothers who took a placebo."
Caraway is loaded with fiber and several important minerals, including iron, magnesium, copper, and calcium and in many cultures has traditionally been used to increase milk production. It is also a source of antioxidants and may reduce inflammation and promote digestive health.
Many Asian and Middle Eastern cultures have considered ginger to be a cure-all for thousands of years, and have used ginger to promote breastmilk production. In some areas of the world, women are given ginger right after the delivery of a child to help a mother heal from childbirth.
Our 100% organic certified blends adhere to strict production processes. We take it a step further and test each finished batch again for heavy metals, pesticides and gluten.
Our custom tea blends were developed by herbalists to determine the most efficacious herbs and dosages. We work with a family-owned tea blender in Highland, New York to produce our 100% organic blends, who makes it their mission to develop deep source connections and personal relationships with artisan tea growers and single-family estates throughout the world that use only organic sustainable agricultural practices.
Our teabags are made from certified biodegradable mesh that comes from sugar cane. Our tea pouches are made with recyclable plastic. Our shipper box was designed purposefully for minimal waste. We will continue to make it a priority to find ways to reduce our ecological footprint when it comes to our packaging, supply chain and manufacturing processes.

Here's what we did to ensure product safety. First, we verified every single ingredient, dosage and product form we used in each product with a toxicologist. Then, we reviewed our product formulas with OB-GYN's, dermatologists and nutritionists for sign-off on safety for breastfeeding mothers. Next, we did 3rd party safety testing on each product to determine the products are pesticide free, non-GMO and gluten-free. As with taking any supplement or using any product while breastfeeding, if you have any questions, it's always a good idea to consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
Our tonics are a liquid dietary supplement containing a proprietary blend of vitamins and herbs.
