Geranium contains gentle diuretic properties meaning it helps to reduce swelling. This helps to soothe tender, full and heavy breasts, engorged breasts and symptoms of mastitis. Geranium is also a very uplifting ingredient which will help with new mummy exhaustion.
Lemongrass is a galactagogue meaning it helps to promote lactation and the flow of milk. This is an essential ingredient for women who are experiencing low milk supply. Lemongrass also helps to uplift the mind and increase self esteem.
Mandarin contains antiseptic properties which help to prevent infection. Mandarin also promotes healing which helps to calm and treat sore nipples, whilst also relieving stress (which can be associated with low milk production).

Directions for Use
Always dilute Bosom Buddies in water and apply to a compress, and always ensure you are using Bosom Buddies postpartum and not during pregnancy. To help ease full, heavy tender breasts, engorgement or symptoms of mastitis you will benefit from applying the “Ooh” compresses just prior to each feed so that the baby can then help to empty the breast after the oils have helped to reduce the inflammation and encouraged the breast tissue to contract. For low milk supply it is beneficial to apply the “Aah” compresses before each feed to help reduce any anxiety and encourage hormones involved in milk production and flow in readiness for the next feed. You may prefer to apply the “Ouch” compresses after each feed to help with any pain or discomfort experienced during the feed and ease sore nipples before the next feed comes around. But don’t worry if you forget because you can use the oils as often and whenever you feel the need and in the early days it is often impossible to predict or pre-empt the next feed and some women will prefer to use compresses just at a time when have a moment to themselves!
