Goats Rue – Traditionally Goats Rue was considered to be a potent galactagogue (increases milk production) and Goats Rue has a long history of use for this purpose. It has been shown to increase milk output by up to 50% in some cases (Hoffman, The New Holistic Herbal).
Blessed Thistle - Traditionally Blessed or Holy Thistle was seen as a cure-all for anything – it was highly valued. Today, Blessed Thistle is primarily used for lactating mothers to improve milk supply and is considered to be one of the best herbs to do this. Its other properties include a long history of use for gas, constipation and stomach pain and in a 2015 study, as a member of the Asteraceae family of plants, it was found to also possess some anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Nettle – Traditionally used as a galactagogue for nursing mothers, Nettle also has a strengthening and supporting role in the body. It does contain some iron and is often used by herbalists as a tonic herb to both nourish and balance energy after childbirth. It combines well with Goats Rue and Blessed Thistle to promote the flow of breast milk for lactating mothers.
Vervain – A nervous system tonic that supports milk flow, it also strengthens the nervous system and at the same time relaxes tension. It has properties that help the digestive system when you’re stressed or under pressure. The gut is very affected by stress or depression, making Vervain a perfect herb to choose
Lemongrass - Supports milk flow and digestion. It also promotes lymph flow (very important in the removal of wastes and toxins) is anti-inflammatory and calming.
Hibiscus - contains vitamin C, minerals and anthocyanins (antioxidants), and has been shown to help reduce inflammation and stress.
Rose - Helps anxiety (calming), skin conditions and great for viral infections. Its calming properties work well in this formula.
Rosehip - Essentially a calming tonic rich in vitamins and antioxidants. It is an excellent spleen/stomach and adrenal tonic – organs which tend to be affected by childbirth, lack of sleep and breastfeeding.

“Changed my life! I went from only being able to express 30 ml a day- took me 2 weeks to get enough to leave bubs for 2 hours for a yoga class. Less than a week of having tea every day, and in 10 mins I expressed over 70ml in one go. Also highly recommend the mothers love tea, really helped to settle my babies wind.
Thank you thank you thank you! ” Lisa P, Facebook review
I’m just writing to say thank you! My mum first ordered the colic tea for me, after my 1 week old baby girl would spend hours and hours of screaming in pain.
I’ve had a rough journey with breastfeeding. Because of the colic, lacking issues and nipple pain, I now express and bottle feed my Bub.
I wrote a completely honest review and was lucky enough to win the $200 store credit from you. Thank you very much. With this credit I was able to get myself the Colic Tea and Lactation Tea. As well as a mother day box for my mother who put me on to your tea in the first place.
Because I was pumping and bottling, my supply dropped and I began to panic. That’s why I brought the lactation tea! Oh boy, it has been wonderful. Not only can I pump fresh milk, but I have so much, I have had to freeze 9 litres!
With your tea, I am able to pump over 1L a day and that’s only 4 sessions a day.
So from one very very grateful mother, thank you!" Taylor
“I’m currently breastfeeding twins (11 months) and was worried about my supply as I pump 3 days a week. After 3 days of drinking lactation tea my milk supply is up and it’s so much creamier! I’m so happy with the tea and will be buying more when this bag is nearly finished. I highly recommend this product as it doesn’t contain fenugreek!! Thanks so much a Clean Tea!!” Mandi A
