The fenugreek is used in maple syrup. It can make your sweat, milk, urine, smell like vanilla/maple.

I tried mothers milk tea when he was maybe a few weeks old but not since. It helped my milk supply increase a ton but what does that have to do with a sweet vanilla smell?

Oh and I drink mothers milk tea a lot and my Sil always says my son smells amazing. But I also use almond and coconut oils in him.
