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 exclusively breastfeed my 3 1/2-month-old baby and have had a dip in milk supply several times. This can lead to feelings of panic about milk drying up!

I tried the Fennel essential oil (2-3 drops per side), applying it topically to each area above the breast and also on my spine at the breast level. Even just one application gets me back on track!

I also noticed the consistency of my milk changed from more of a skim texture to a fattier and creamier texture. I am now able to pump out more while away from my baby, and I no longer worry so much about not being able to provide breast milk for my son.

Anytime I notice a dip in milk supply, I now use the Young Living Fennel essential oil, applying for one or two days.
