The postpartum period can be a time of true bliss for a new mom! At the same time, it’s also a period with a number of physical discomforts. Oftentimes, perineal discomfort can be at the top of that list. 3Girls Holistics’ New Mama Healing Herbal Bath is intended to help heal and sooth a new moms bottom from the swelling and damage that often accompany childbirth.
Intended to be used daily for the first 5 days postpartum, it is a blend of herbs that not only heal, but also relax and calm a new moms emotions due to their pleasant smell. Pampering and healing at the same time! What new mom doesn’t deserve that?!
In addition to being added to a bath, the herb mixture can also be steeped in boiling water for 30 minutes, and then added to a peri bottle to be used as a perineal rinse following bathroom use. In addition, it can also be steeped in the bag provided and then placed in the refrigerator or freezer to be used as a direct healing compress.
