Childbirth can be hard in many ways, particularly on a woman's body, and mamas need all the help they can get to relieve postpartum soreness. This herbal bath tea is a soothing blend of skin-calming herbs & flowers, responsibly wildcrafted & grown in the Sage & Thistle urban garden, each of which promotes healthy skin regeneration and provides relief from swelling & soreness. Brew tea, then add to sitz bath, regular bath, and use to make soothing frozen postpartum pads.
