5 Ways to Use Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs
Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs offer a natural, gentle solution that can be used in a variety of ways.Here are five ways to use Anointment's Postpartum Bath Herbs:
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
