New today in the shop is another blend by our local vendor, Smarty Plants Healing Herb Farm. I am excited to have this in the shop, as we have received many requests for this! We will continue to carry the MotherLove Brand Sitz sprays and herbs, but this blend definitely takes the win for verstility and we love that is locally made. This blend can help with sore muscles, swelling, itching, hemorrhoids, perineal discomfort, fissures and tears.
Our new bath blend contains proven herbs such as lavender, plantain, red raspberry leaf and more and can be used in a variety of ways. Each $18 package contains 7 sachets, enough for 7 sitz baths or 3-7 full baths. The preparation is easy, simply add 1 tea bag to a 32 oz jar and steep for 30 minutes before use. Check with your provider, but in most cases the bath can be given an hour after vaginal birth if no sign of fever and everything looks ok.
This blend can be used in a variety of ways. You can make a compress by soaking a wash cloth in the solution and applying warm or cold to the perine
um to decrease swelling and reduce tenderness. This can also be used in a sitz bath basin if you are unable to fully submerse in a full tub. For a full tub bath, one or two satchets can be used and baby can take the bath with you with their provider ok. This blend can help heal and dry out the umbilical cord.
As you can see there are many uses for this new blend and we would love to tell you more about it and all of our wonderful wellness items for mom, baby and the entire family. Stop by Tuesday-Saturday 11-4 or shoot us an email anytime. We are here to serve you!
