These 3 breastfeeding oils from the Natural Birthing Company are going to help you along your journey of breastfeeding. They will help with various elements that you might get along the way, they will help soothe and calm, also helping to lift your mood - helping with the anxiety and stress that you might sometimes feel.
Midwives always encourage you to seek support and help with positioning and attachment, whilst the Bosom Buddies oils soothe the body, relax the mind, bringing comfort and relief to those early days.
- Pack of 3 x10ml oils
- All three blends also help with any low mood or anxiety, tension, stress
- Essential oils used in Bosom Buddies have been chosen as they are shown to be both safe and helpful during breastfeeding
- The oils can help balance the body’s systems and they help keep the body’s immune system strong
The 3 Oils:
- Aah: Suitable for low milk supply
- Ouch: Suitable for sore and painful nipples
- Ohh: Suitable for full heavy tender breasts, engorgement and Mastitis.
Mastitis is an infection of the breast that can be extremely painful and can make you feel unwell. It is important that you keep breastfeeding baby during this time and also seek medical advice as you may need antibiotics.
How to use the oils:
- Add 2-3 drops of your chosen blend to a bowl of water. Hot water is best used for low milk supply, cold water on sore nipples. Whereas heavy, full tender breasts would benefit from hot water to ease the flow. Or use cold water to ease the discomfort/swelling. So choose what feels right for you at the time.
- Submerge a couple of flannels or muslin cloths into the water solution. Squeeze them out and place the wet cloths over both breasts directly onto the skin.
- Cover with a dry towel to keep warm and relax for up to 30 minutes. (During this time the cloths can be renewed in the water to maintain their temperature)
- Prior to feeding baby clean the breasts with a clean wet cloth to help to remove any lingering scent from the oils.
