Sweet Water Lactation Tea

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

Directions:

  1. Mix the seeds in this proportion in a glass jar to store for easy access.
  2. Boil water and add 1 tsp of the mixed seeds. Remove from heat, cover and steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Strain the seeds. (The seeds can be used in soups or with cooked vegetables.)
  4. Refrigerate half of the unused tea for later in the day. Drink warm or at room temperature. Make fresh daily.
