2. Self Massage
Self-massaging the breasts will help reduce inflammation as well as improve blood circulation. This will help maintain healthy breast tissues and more nutrients will reach the breasts to prevent pain and tenderness.
- When you are in the shower, soap your breasts and then gently massage them for a few minutes from the center of your chest out to your armpits. If breastfeeding, do not apply soap to the nipples.
- Alternatively, add a few drops of camphor oil to 2 tablespoons of warm olive oil and use it to massage the breasts 1 or 2 times a day.
- Another option is to mix together equal amounts of apricot oil and wheat germ oil and then use it as massage oil for your tender breasts.
Massage your breasts on a regular basis to keep them healthy and pain free.
