Honoring Your Postpartum Body: 2 Must-Have Ingredients to Care for the Body That Served You (and Baby!) So Well
When the work is over and that precious baby is in your arms, it is easy to shift all your focus onto that miraculous bundle of joy. And, while that certainly makes sense, it is equally important to carve out time to care for your amazing body. She’s basically finished a 24/7, seven-days-a-week-for-40-ish-weeks job—growing, nurturing, carrying, and delivering that wee babe.
She is a warrior…and she deserves to be nurtured for all the work she put in. And yet, although we spend months preparing for baby’s arrival, it is all too common for new moms to overlook those things needed to care for the amazing vessel that brought their newborn into the world.
Today, we’d like to remedy that by shining a light on two ingredients that are all-natural and incredibly healing for postpartum moms. We’d also like to introduce you to a product that just might be a game changer for your postpartum self-care.
This healing plant has been used for centuries for its’ medicinal properties. The smell of lavender is incredibly calming, and the dried flowers can be used to reduce swelling and inflammation while promoting tissue regeneration.
Witch hazel is a plant whose bark can be soaked in water to create the witch hazel liquid we often see at markets and pharmacies. While witch hazel has been used for thousands of years for everything from toning skin to reducing dandruff, postpartum moms fall in love with it for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing properties.
Two Powerhouse Ingredients in One Amazing Product
One of the most delicious postpartum experiences is relaxing in a warm sitz bath. The warm water increases blood flow and promotes healing.
But we decided to kick the sitz benefits up a few notches and created our Healing Herbal Sitz Bath. In it, we combined these deeply healing and restorative ingredients along with other all-natural herbs and dead sea salt. When added to warm water the ingredients blend to create an herbal soak that reduces swelling and irritation while calming sore skin.
Whether you’re healing from an episiotomy or natural tearing, dealing with itchy sutures, or suffering from hemorrhoids, our custom blend will kickstart the healing process while delivering much-needed moisture to your most sensitive areas.
Our sitz bath also happens to smell lovely! As you soak, you’ll enjoy the heady scent of lavender, which promotes a sense of calmness and wellbeing.
If you are preparing for baby’s arrival, be sure to prepare for your own nurturing once delivery takes place. Stock up on all of the must-have mommy essentials by visiting our online store. We have everything you need to care for the body that has served you and baby so well.
Congratulations, mama. You did an amazing job…as did that amazing body of yours. Remember to treat her well…
She’s certainly earned it.
