This recipe is from Ysha Oakes, Ayurvedic cook and doula. This Ayurvedic lactation tea helps promote digestion, hydration, lactation and rejuvenation. I drank it throughout the day for the first two months after childbirth for lactation support.
2/3 tsp fennel seeds
1/3 tsp fenugreek seeds (I found mind at Banyan Botanicals.)
2 quarts water
- Mix the seeds in this proportion in a glass jar to store for easy access.
- Boil water and add 1 tsp of the mixed seeds. Remove from heat, cover and steep for 5 minutes.
- Strain the seeds. (The seeds can be used in soups or with cooked vegetables.)
- Refrigerate half of the unused tea for later in the day. Drink warm or at room temperature. Make fresh daily.
