3. Evening Primrose Oil
One of the best treatments for breast pain is evening primrose oil. This oil contains the active ingredient gamolenic acid (GLA), a kind of fatty acid that helps the body respond well to hormonal changes. This in turn eases breast tenderness and pain.
- Apply evening primrose oil externally on your breasts and massage gently for a few minutes.
- Another option is to take 240 to 500 mg of evening primrose oil standardized extract daily for about 3 months, but only after consulting your doctor.
Note: If you are trying to get pregnant or if you have epilepsy, do not use evening primrose oil remedies.
