For New Moms-
The herbs in Healing Sitz Bath recipe mix are:
• 2 oz. of rosemary and Aloe,
• 1 oz. each of Chamomile, chickweed, marshmallow root, plantain, land calendula, golden seal
• 2 oz. of sea salt
As I look at this list of herbs I see some that feel a bit astringent and powerful in their healing ability. These are herbs like yarrow, rosemary, and golden seal, and then there are the soothing, cooling herbs like chamomile, chickweed, marshmallow root, plantain, and calendula.
The soothing quality of the sitz bath is what I think of most – the relief and feeling of gentle herbal healing.
Prepare your sitz bath
To prepare your sitz bath...
• Pour boiling water over four ounces of your herbal sitz bath blend.
• Let it sit and steep for at least four hours.
• Strain it into a bowl and then sit with your vaginal area in the tea for about 15 minutes.
Not only are the herbs healing, but this little bit of time for you can be cherished as well.
So as you can see…it has been non stop…I am exhausted…it is a feeling of accomplishment and a sense of real pride…I gave my staff off till Monday…we have all been working quite hard and deserved it…I will be landing in Durham, NC on the 5th of November…call or e-mail me if you want to catch up while I am there or on my way back down to Florida…Life is good
May you all be blessed,
