The occasional plugged duct happens. We hope to catch these problems when they are small, to avoid progressing to full-blown Mastitis (breast infection). But either way, this blend can help by boosting your immune system, helping to clear your lymph, and addresses brewing infections head on. It is CRITICAL that you address your need to attend to this problem early. Nothing is more potent than rest, when it comes to healing a breast issue such as this. Most of the time, women find that when a plugged duct happens, or mastitis is knocking on the door, its a call to rest more, to stay better hydrated, and to focus more on nourishment. Many of the blends listed on this page may be appropriate to use in conjunction with this remedy, such as Mamma Mia, Zen Mamma, and Ease Up Tea (or even better, to use preventively). But nothing will help as much as going to bed with your baby and staying that way, skin-to-skin, for 24 hours. Do nothing else but nurse (a lot!), drink and eat well. This is a time to call for help and support with older children, if at all possible. Other adjunct therapies such as laying on hot compresses, and hand-expressing milk while massaging the plugged duct toward the nipple, are also very helpful. Remember: In the presence of a plugged duct, or the development of mastitis, be sure to alert your care provider early.
