Mastitis is a breast infection occurring in women who are breast-feeding. Mastitis causes the breast to become red, swollen, and very painful. Symptoms of mastitis include breast tenderness, fever, general lack of well-being, skin redness, and a breast that feels warm to the touch. Mastitis generally occurs in just one breast, not in both.

Recommendation:

Lavender, Invigorating Blend (combine with Lavender), Patchouli

Dilute as recommended, and apply 1–2 drops on breasts.
