Clogged Milk Ducts | Mastitis Relief with Essential oils

A clogged milk duct feels like a knot in the breast – and can be quite painful – sometimes not. Recently a doula client of mine recognized these symptoms in herself and she called me in for some postnatal support. Being open to natural measures to remedy the situation, I offered her the following protocols. All oils recommended are from the dōTERRA line, as they are the Highest, Therapeutic Grade oil you can find on the market, and the only ones I use.

Clogged Milk Duct / Mastitis Relief:

– Lavender 2-3 drops on hot wash cloth or inside of diaper, which withstands the heat for longer, hold for 10-15 mins
– Massage all around the breast with (Fractionated Coconut Oil) FCO, Lavender (2), Wild orange (2) and Tea Tree (2) OR Lavender (2) & Citrus Bliss (2)
– Dry brush with 3-5 drops of Smart and Sassy to help stimulate The lymphatic system
– Table top position on forearms and let the boob drop into babies mouth (gravity)

I hope this helps and you find success using these methods.
