When the immune system is responding to disease, as white blood cells kill pathogens they are taken to the lymph system for disposal.
If the lymph system clears out dead material rapidly, the healing process is enhanced. If the lymph system is lagging, fluid can build up causing swelling, pressure, and pain.
Red Root & Cleavers have both long been used to help facilitate the clearing of fluid and dead cellular tissue from the lymph system.
It is likely not a good match for those who:
- Are pregnant or nursing
- Take blood thinners or have blood clotting issues
- Have low blood pressure
- Rely on iron supplements
- Have recently had breast surgery (check with your Dr.)
For breast massage:
- After your shower, while skin is still damp, place 1-2 droppers of Demeter serum in one hand
- Using gentle pressure and very light strokes, begin your massage at your armpit
- Continue the massage by moving upward and inward toward your breastbone. This mimics the direction of the lymphatic system.
- Move the entire way around your breast, back to your underarm.
- After the circle is complete, you may pump the breast inward several times
- Repeat on your other side.
- If you’ve had recent surgeries or other issues, it may be best to leave this type of massage to professionals.

History & Use
Native to eastern North America, Red Root is named after the color of the root bark as well as the red shade it imparts on infusions. It has been used by indigenous peoples for a wide range of applications, from arthritis to influenza. It was used as a substitute for tea during the American Revolutionary War, so is often called Jersey tea.
Red root is a powerful lymphatic stimulant, and has a high concentration of tannins and alkaloids, making it highly astringent and toning as well. It has many other purported benefits when used internally as a respiratory expectorant, blood coagulant, antimicrobial, and for spleen, liver, and immune support.
Cleavers has been used for centuries, dating back to ancient Greece, for a variety of physical complaints. The extract is considered one of the best herbal lymphatic and kidney tonics, relieving swollen, enlarged lymph glands. It has also been used as a topical herbal remedy for skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and insect bites, as it soothes itchy skin.
Improvement in lymphatic function has been shown to improve general detoxification and can help to resolve such skin disorders as seborrhoea, psoriasis, eczema, and for the treatment of external ulcers and abnormal growths
