    • in a peri bottle to squirt onto perineal area, especially after bathroom use
    • soak sanitary pads to freeze as a cool, pain relieving "ice pack" to wear after the birth. (One bag will make one supply of frozen pads.)  This is the most popular way of using the Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs.  
    • All ideas can be used together.

    Herbs under our Articles & Information section. Clients swear by this product!  Pam had a third degree tear (to the rectum, which rarely ever happens!), and she used the frozen pads and peri bottle.  She had NO pain whatsoever from her many stitches - she said she couldn't feel any discomfort at all, ever - and her midwife was amazed at the lack of swelling and speed of healing.  All of this was directly due to the Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs!  Her experience with the herbs is common - it has become one of Herb Lore's most popular items!  It is a "must have" for any birthing mom!

    There are several ways to use the herb, all of which will provide relief and healing of your sensitive tissues.

    • Make Frozen Pads: 

      How To Make Them: Make the tea as directed on the bag (Use 1 bag of herbs to 1 gallon of water). Fold sanitary napkins in half (hold top and bottom ends together with adhesive in the middle and pad surface on the outside). Dip the pad into tea, soaking the middle of the pad. Lay the dipped pads into container side by side, in a slight “C” shape to fit your body once they're frozen and separate the pads with saran wrap or wax paper to prevent them from freezing together. Make and freeze the pads before you give birth so you have them ready when you need them most.

      How To Use Them: Wrap one frozen pad in a soft, white (no colors or designs) paper towel (to prevent freezer burn on the skin). Place in a waterproof pair of underwear. Kotex Personal or Depends have waterproof underwear available at the grocery store or drug store. The frozen pad will keep the swelling down and the herbs that you soaked the pad in will help the area to heal. Use a new pad each time you use the bathroom or as you like. One bag of herbs will make a good supply of frozen pads.
    • Peri Bottle: 

      Make the tea as directed. Pour cooled tea into peri bottle and have available for rinsing the vaginal/perineal area during and after urination. This idea is recommended for use along with any of the other ways you choose to use your sitz bath herbs.
    • Sitz Bath:
