The Mountain Mama Postpartum Sitz Bath is a blend of skin soothing and healing herbs to speed perineal healing after birth. Featuring wild mountain yarrow, violet leaf, calendula, chickweed, and comfrey, all harvested, processed, and dried by hand.
Yarrow can increase cell turnover, calendula & comfrey speed healing and minimize scarring, as violet leaf and chickweed soothe and cool inflamed tissues.
The herb blend will come packaged in cotton muslin bags that you can brew like tea to make using them quick and simple. Three large muslin bags per order.
To use, put the muslin bag of herbs in a quart jar and cover with boiling water. Cover and steep like you would a tea or infusion for at least 20 minutes. Transfer the infused water and bag into a shallow bowl or bucket large enough to sit in. Add more warm water so that the water lever just covers the pelvis once submerged. Sit and enjoy the soothing herbal bath for 20-30 minutes as long as you are comfortable.
Alternatively, you can steep the herbs and then transfer the liquid to a peri bottle to wash with regularly. If using in a peri bottle, the infusion should be refrigerated when not in use and discarded after two days.
