Working mothers with the added stresses of returning to work find this a life saver. You will know if you are taking enough when you notice you have the aroma of maple syrup. 5-10 drops twice a day is equivalent to the recommended 2 capsules three times a day.

Fenugreek is an annual herb used for centuries to increase the production of breast milk. Fenugreek is a natural product containing disogenin, a plant-based estrogen, which has been shown to increase milk flow in lactating women to help support breast milk production.* Unlike other available Fenugreek supplements which can require taking up to 8 capsules per day, Fairhaven's Fenugreek contains a unique blend of organic Fenugreek Seed Powder, along with a concentrated Fenugreek Seed Powder extract (8:1), delivering a dose equivalent to 2000 mg of standard fenugreek seed powder in just 2 capsules a day.
This tincture is a nice mix of the most common four herbs used for milk production:
Bitter Fennel (seed)
They also use some fennel essential oil.
You can add a dropper full (about 30 drops) to water 1-3 times a day.
