Healing Salve - This salve is remarkable and will heal ANYTHING! I have folks use it on everything from bug bites to diaper rash to winter-cracked fingers. I want to share with you my experience. I grabbed a plastic spatula that was too close to the stove and it literally stuck to my little finger and burned it really badly. I immediately put the hand and spatula under cold running water as the spatula was adhered to my hand. I was in so much pain I cannot even describe it. I cleaned the wound and saturated it with Healing Salve. Within minutes, the pain dissipated. I kept a dressing on it with the Healing Salve for several days. I had second degree burns, no doubt, and they healed within about a week. The scars are not noticeable. It was remarkable. Everyone should keep Herb Lore's Healing Salve in their medicine chest. J.W.
Best Herbs to Increase Breastmilk Production
There are several herbs that work well to increase milk production. You may be wondering which one is best for you! Here is a brief summary - there is MUCH more information under Articles & Information and a more detailed and comprehensive one in the Premium Article section. Here is a brief summary though:
Nursing Tea Moringa Blend or Tincture - its the same combination of herbs, just two different ways of taking it. (What is a tincture, and how do you take it?) This is a good product to choose as a first course of action, as its very easy to use, and very easy on baby's young tummy. It will help increase milk production while helping to alleviate gas, colic, reflux or indigestion.
Goat's Rue - works to stimulate the mammary glands themselves, so it is a fantastic herb for women who have trouble with their milk supply right from the beginning.
Blessed Thistle - this digestive bitter is also a fantastic herb for increasing milk supply. We've had a few women who Fenugreek has not worked for, and Blessed Thistle has done a fantastic job for them!
Fenugreek - one of the strongest herbs to increase milk production. It must be used with consistency though, otherwise it can drop the supply if a dose is forgotten or the herb discontinued suddenly. Much more information on this herb and how to use it correctly, and how to wean down off of it once your supply is where you want it to be can be seen here. It works great and is one of the most popular herbs for increasing breastmilk production!
All of these herbs can be used together if needed and desired. Please take a little time to read more about these herbs and other ways that are helpful in increasing breastmilk production!
