Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I was introduced to essential oils by a friend when my third baby was six months old. She had a baby a little younger than my son, and she was struggling with making enough milk for him.

She read in her essential oils reference book that Fennel oil rubbed on the breasts could help the milk supply increase. She had been rubbing Fennel oil on her breasts for a week and not much had happened.

I jokingly took four drops of Fennel in a glass of water and the next morning woke up SPRAYING milk! I thought "Surely this is a fluke!" I tried the experiment two weeks later with the same result.

Fennel oil is great for nursing mothers! Now I give a bottle to all of my pregnant friends to have on hand if they need help making more milk!
