A sitz bath is a warm, shallow bath that cleanses the perineum. It can help heal haemorrhoids, bowel issues, and infections and is great after given birth. This recipe really helped heal me after having my first child, I used the baby bath to sit in myself but you can use your bathtub if you have one. I hope it will be useful to another person who has just given birth.
- 1 cup comfrey leaf
- 1 cup lavender flower
- 1 cup raspberry leaf
- 1/2 cup yarrow
- 1 cup calendula
- 1/2 cup sea salt
- 1/2 cup chamomile
- 1/2 cup plantain leaf
I bought all of these in bulk and mixed them in a big glass jar.
Mix 1 cup herbs with 2 litres boiling water, brew for at least 20 minutes, strain and add to bath/sitz bath or use in a peri bottle.
