Bosom Buddies have been developed especially for the new mum who wants to breastfeed, to soothe and comfort you throughout your journey. Each oil supports a common issue that any breastfeeding mum may experience from heavy, tender breasts and engorgement to low milk supply or sore nipples.

Bosom Buddies Breastfeeding Oils contain three oil blends:

“Ooh!”

A blend of Geranium, Peppermint, Cypress and German Chamomile essential oils to soothe tender, full and heavy breasts, engorged breasts or the symptoms of mastitis. “Ooh” will also calm, relax and uplift any new mummy exhaustion.  

“Aah!”

A blend of Fennel, Lemon Grass and Mandarin essential oils to support with milk production and flow and relieve any anxiety and stress – perfect for any mummies experiencing low milk supply.

“Ouch!”

A blend of Lavender, Neroli, Mandarin, Frankincense and Peppermint essential oils to soothe and calm sore nipples and relax a tired stressed mind.

With the advice and guidance from your Midwife (or other breastfeeding expert) and the support from Bosom Buddies you will feel calm and comfortable in no time - we want you to enjoy breastfeeding and continue this beautiful journey.

How to use

  1. Add 2-3 drops of your chosen blend to a bowl of water and agitate the water to help disperse the blended oil. (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 the use of cold water to ease the discomfort /swelling - choose what feels right for you at the time.)
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
  4. Prior to feeding baby clean the breasts with a clean wet cloth to help to remove any lingering scent from the oils.
