To get the most out of this package of healing herbs follow these instructions. Use the provided stocking to create a giant, loosely filled "tea bag". Dump the herbs into a glass, fit the stocking over the mouth of the glass and dump it in. Tie the top off with the ribbon or in a knot. I got some laughter at the following picture, but this is how it looks. I can't help what it looks like, lol.
Brew this in a pot over low heat for several hours or in a crock pot. The good thing about a crock pot is you can leave it on, and even add more water as needed. Take some of the hot liquid and put it in the kind of plastic sitz bath that fits over the toilet or put a chux underpad on the bed and apply hot, soaking compresses to the afflicted area. Swap out for another when cool. Either way, do this for about a half hour twice a day. If the perineum is really sore and swollen, follow with an ice pack.
Birth is amazing, but sometimes it does some damage. These herbs are soothing for every postpartum woman, but can really speed the healing* and ease the discomfort* for those who experience tearing and stitches. Brew it strong and long using the provided stocking to create a giant teabag. You can add the brewed liquid to a bath, or use a sitz bath or some steaming hot compresses (best choice) directly on the area. Contains a blend of organic herbs: comfrey, shepherds purse, witch hazel, calendula flowers, sage and sea salt. 2oz herbs and 1 oz salt.
