Dry, sore, cracked nipples are common pains associated with breastfeeding, especially those first few weeks. Ouch! Many of the creams on the market aren’t healthy for your skin or your baby. Luckily, our salve is 100% natural and totally safe for baby to ingest.

We use a combination of edible, plant-based oil, wax, and herbs to relieve pain and dryness on sensitive areas. It can even double up as a lip balm, dry skin treatment, diaper rash salve, and more! If you and baby are suffering from thrush, Breast Balm can help because calendula flowers have skin-rejuvenating and anti-fungal properties.

    This helped a lot with sore nipples. It also works for chapped/crafted skin in general and even though I’m done breastfeeding I still use it. The other day I waxed my upper lip and it significantly irritated the skin, and this stuff did the trick!

  2. Kayla (verified owner)

    Love this product! I used it faithfully when I started nursing with my second baby in hopes of improving the sore, cracked and bleeding nipples. It was a completely different experience this time, not one crack and they stayed moisturized the whole time. I didn’t feel stressed about what was in it when my baby went to nurse either which makes it a winner in my book! I have started adding it mama gifts when my friends have babies and they have all loved it as well!

  3. Lena N (verified owner)

    I had bleeding nipples with my last baby and I tried all my other nipple balms I had on hand and nothing worked, I ordered this and was heeled after just a few days. The tube makes it super easy to apply. I definitely recommend this to any nursing mama.

    Unfortunately for me nursing has always been painful and the pain never went away. My nipples throb during and after nursing but Breast Balm Herbal Salve was crucial in my breastfeeding journey for healing and even helped provide comfort with pumping.

  5. Anna (verified owner)

    I’ve tried many different breast balms and this is the one that works! My baby and I had a rough start to breastfeeding and it took 2.5 months to get good treatment. During this time, my nipples felt raw and painful. They would have bled and felt worse without this balm. I like how it’s more oily than other balms, which also helps lubricate for pumping too.
    I ordered the small one for the diaper bag and the large one for house use. I highly recommend the small one in stick form for the diaper bag, it’s so easy to apply!
    We love the safe ingredients and have been recommending this to everyone we know that’s pregnant or breastfeeding.

    I bought this product specifically to fight a yeast infection I believed had begun in my newborn’s mouth. I noticed results within 1-2 days and left such soft skin behind too!

  7. Bethanie

    I LOVED this stuff. I liked how it was in a tube which made it so much easier to apply. I definitely reccomend this to anyone who is breastfeeding.

    Unfortunately this balm made my newborn develop a bad rash all around her lips. It almost looked like a sever burn in some areas. Had to take her to the doctor to get it checked out because of how bad it was.

  9. Hannah Baluch (verified owner)

    When babe cluster feeds or is sick and feeding constantly they get sore! This stuff takes the ache and sensitivity away with just one use. It’s my favorite and a go to product.

  10. Deborah Weil

    Breast balm helped me significantly. During the first few weeks post partum, I had several clogged ducts and mastitis once. I have the stick, so I massaged it onto the lump, towards the nipple. The time I got mastitis, I didn’t use it right away, otherwise I don’t think it would’ve escalated so badly. It has a pleasant smell. Feels good to a sore spot. Very helpful. Highly recommend!

    This has been my life saver this newborn phase. Baby is 8 days old and my nipples are back to normal thanks to this balm. I love not having to remember to wipe off.

  12. Victoriah (verified owner)

    I didn’t have ay issues nursing with my first baby but my nipples were so raw in the beginning with my second. This stuff saved the day and I loved knowing the ingredients were safe for my baby to nurse without me having to wash it off every time.

  13. Jasminy (verified owner)

    I loved this stuff! As a first time mom I took the small stick to the hospital with me and started using right away because I didn’t want to get the bleeding nipples. It worked! I immediately bought the bigger size when I got home because I loved it so much. My nipples still got sore from breast feeding but I never had “Strawberry milk” like my sister did. The only down side to the 2oz vs the stick was ease of application. The stick made application so easy because it could be done one handed while holding babe, but the stick doesn’t last nearly as long as the 2oz. Having another babe soon and I will be ordering some more!

    I used other nipple balms and they never really seemed to help so since I order every other Earthley product, I figured why not… I was amazed! This helped my nipples not get so dry and cracked while I was just pumping! The ease of the use of the stick is amazing and super smart! Love this!

  15. Grace G. (verified owner)

    I love the convenience of the tube so it’s really easy to apply and not messy at all. And it really works!! Great salve!

  16. Brittney (verified owner)

    No more lanolin :} everyone suggested lanolin for my nips in the beginning. I can not count how many tops, bras, blankets… were ruined. Having to wipe sore nipples before latching. Breast balm, you skip all of that. It’s the lightest formula. Goes on easy, absorbs quickly. Doesn’t need to be scrubbed/wiped before latching. 10/10 recommend

  17. Christiana (verified owner)

    I am nine months pregnant about to have the baby soon but have had cracked nipples for most of the pregnancy. I normally get dry skin so i expected it to happen but previous to buying this product i was using coconut oil which i still stand buy but it took a while to rub in and absorb whereas using this earthly salve has done the job much quicker! The first time i used this product it basically worked over night. Now that it’s fall my skin is starting to crack again so I am using it as daily nipple butter and it works and absorbs so well which is surprising because it is on the oily side yet it works quicker than just plain coconut oil does. The best and most important part for me is that it is safe for breastfeeding meaning that it’s “edible” to the baby and i won’t have to wash the area off before feeding.

    I bought this product to have on hand just in case, but never had to use it for its purpose. But I do suffer from eczema and with the colder temps and dry air, my knuckles have been cracking. It’s extremely painful and itchy. I tried this product on my skin and it provided immense relief! I was amazed at how well it worked, healing my skin!! The cracks would heal after applying it just 2-3 times! So grateful!

    Hands down BEST NIPPLE BALM!! currently just had my 25 weekers (baby 3 and 4)! Love the stick, sooo convenient especially on the go but you will need the larger size trust me! Goes on really nice melts right into my skin. So soothing. works wonders for a lubricant for the flanges (elastic nips here)! Wish list Please offer a stick to hold more of this amazing magical balm !

    I used this a lot when my son was a newborn, especially those first couple of weeks. It really helped, and I get good about using it with my baby because the ingredients were all safe for him to touch, unlike other leading brands in my personal opinion. I initially tried the Lansinoh stuff, and it actually caused a mild contact dermatitis for me, and I also found the consistency very difficult to apply and it felt like it never absorbed. This one absorbed well and didn’t cause any issues. I would highly recommend it for new moms who will be breastfeeding. Don’t wait to order it until after baby like me! I would definitely recommend having it before baby arrives! Also I would recommend going ahead and just getting the larger size, you won’t want to worry about running out before you can order more. I got the large size and was glad I did.
