Sitz Bath Bag
In Scarlet Sage's postpartum sitz bath, we use soothing herbs to speed the healing of the perineum after childbirth. Especially good if a laceration or episiotomy has occurred, or if there are hemorrhoids. Women report that the herbs are "nearly miraculous" in decreasing pain and swelling.* Organic Ingredients: Calendula (Calendula officinalis) Plantain (Plantago major) Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Thorough directions are included with each sitz bath package in which you will make a strong tea with the herbs to sit in, use in a spray, or on maternity pads. One of of our favorite things to recommend to post-labored mothers is to get 12 maternity pads (large maxi pad) and pour a 1/8 cup of brewed sitz bath on each pad, put in a large plastic baggie and freeze them. Take one out each time you need relief from the swelling, place on your perineum and let thaw. It's amazing. * *Information given is the historical use of medicinal herbs.
