Soothe and Recover with Organic Ingredients

Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs are a specially crafted blend of sea salt and certified organic herbs that offer relief and comfort to new moms during their postpartum recovery.

These bleach-free bags are perfect for sitz baths to encourage recovery from childbirth. The blend of herbs in these single-use pouches have been traditionally used to soothe discomfort associated with perineal swelling, hemorrhoids, episiotomy, and tearing. Simply steep in warm water for a calming sitz bath or apply directly to the perineum with cool water or witch hazel lotion after childbirth. 

5 Ways to Use Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs

Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herboffer a natural, gentle solution that can be used in a variety of ways.Here are five ways to use Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs:

  1. Frozen Padsicles

Make a tea with one herbal pouch in about 1 L of water and allow it to cool. Dip the absorbent side of a postpartum, overnight, or other maxi pad into the tea until soaked. Wrap your pad(s) in waxed paper, place in a bag or container, and into the freezer. Once frozen, you can use them to soothe swelling by placing a frozen pad in your underpants. If it's too cold directly on your skin, try an underpant-pad-underpant sandwich to add a layer between your skin and the pad.

  1. Add to a Peri Bottle

Add one herbal pouch to 1 L boiling water and steep until cooled. Pour the cooled tea into a peri bottle for rinsing during and after urination. Be sure to use the tea within 24 hours or keep it refrigerated, and discard any unused portions after 48 hours.

  1. Soothe Itchy Skin Conditions

If you are experiencing poison ivy or Hand Foot and Mouth Disease, soaking in the bath with an herbal pouch can help relieve itching.

  1. Facial Steam

Steep an herbal pouch in a shallow bowl of boiling water and carefully steam your face. You can place a towel over your head to help keep the steam in, but be careful not to burn your skin.

  1. Add to Baby's Bath

Adding an herbal pouch to your baby's bath can help heal their umbilical site. However, be sure not to get the salty water in their eyes!

Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs are made with certified organic, fair trade herbs and are gentle on delicate skin. They are also free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, and preservatives, making them safe for you and your baby. Try them out and see how they can help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your postpartum journey
