Cleavers- with a special affinity for the breasts and lymphatic system- It is especially useful for breast cysts and promotes lymph drainage. It strengthens lymphatic circulation, eases breast congestion and has the ability to work fibrosities out of the tissues.

Evening primrose oil has been shown in double-blind studies to reduce the symptoms of breast pain. It contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are important to breast health
