For those who do not have a standard bathtub, the bath for toilet makes sitz baths possible. For those who do, it provides the kind of comfort and convenience your traditional bathtub may not offer.
How Does A Toilet Sitz Bath Work?
A toilet sitz bath works simply and it can be used with any standard toilet. The bath looks like a small basin with a hole located in the back, and it’s attached to the back of the toilet so that the basin sits right in the upper part of the bowl. Once attached to the toilet, simply fill the bath with warm clean water, taking care not to make the water too hot or too cool. This is the water you’ll be soaking in, so you’ll want to make sure the temperature is just right for complete comfort and relaxation.
To soak, simply sit on the toilet with your bottom area submerged in the sitz bath water. This gives you a comfortable, accessible, and safe place to take a sitz bath whether you have a standard bathtub or not. The soak should last for around 20 minutes and may include your favorite sitz epsom salt soak. 20 minutes allows you to experience the full benefits of the sitz soak without soaking for too long.
Once you’re finished with your sitz bath, cleaning up is simplest with a toilet sitz bath basin. Raise yourself up from the bath slowly, remembering that the bath may cause deep relaxation. Pat your skin dry with a clean, soft towel to avoid irritating the soft skin that has been soaking in the water, and once you’re dry you’re ready to clean up the tub itself. The small hole in the back of the soaking bath is for draining the water, which can be done right into the toilet bowl. The water may then be flushed and the sitz bath is ready to clean.
To clean the sitz bath, simply wash with a gentle soapy water, dry with a clean towel, and store until you’re ready for your next soak. Sitz baths can store easily under a sink or in a bathroom closet, and often come with their own storage bags for keeping your tub safe and discreet.
For those who have never used a sitz toilet tub before, the Sitz Tub Bundle has everything you need to get started. The medical grade sitz tub is made to suit any standard toilet, and the bundle comes complete with a bag of Sitz Soak featuring USP grade epsom salts and all-natural essential oils. With the bundle, you’re ready to take a sitz bath straight away with spa-like pampering at home.
How To Make A Sitz Bath Into A Home Spa Experience
Sitz baths do more than just relieve the discomfort associated with hemorrhoids. They’re soothing, relaxing, and a great way to participate in a bit of self-care using your own at-home spa. The addition of epsom salt blends is an excellent way to make your sitz bath feel more like a personal spa, as you enjoy the all-natural aromatherapy and calming feeling of the soak. Some sitz bath blends that bring the spa-like atmosphere to your bath are:
- Sitz Bath Soak – The classic Sitz Bath Soak is perfect for those who are just trying a sitz bath for the first time, or those who already love the soothing experience a sitz bath provides. This soak uses USP grade epsom salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin C crystals, Vitamin E oil, and essential oils of lavender, frankincense, geranium, niaouli, and juniper. A refreshing and relaxing blend, the all-natural aromatherapy gives the same feelings one would experience taking a breath of fresh air outdoors.
- Lilliuma Sitz Bath Salt – Lilliuma’s Sitz Bath Salt uses Mediterranean Sea salt for a mineral rich soothing soak. Alongside the salt, you’ll find nourishing fractionated MCT coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, and Vitamin E oil to provide comfort to the skin, while essential oils of lavender, chamomile, and frankincense create a relaxing aromatherapy experience.
- Postpartum Sitz Bath Soak – For new moms, a little self-care in an at-home spa is always appreciated. The Postpartum Sitz Bath Soak uses USP grade epsom salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin C crystals, Vitamin E oil, and essential oils of frankincense, lavender, geranium, chamomile, and lemon.
To use your sitz bath blend, start with around 1 tablespoon of your chosen soak per gallon of water used, and go up to 2 tablespoons per gallon as you see fit. Some may find their ideal level of comfort on the lower end of the scale, while others prefer to add a bit more soak to their sitz bath.
A Better Sitz Bath Experience
As you sit in your toilet sitz tub, you can simply rest with your own thoughts, or you can bring in some entertainment to better tailor your experience. Some calming music played low can further enhance your relaxation, or you can use this time to catch up on the hobbies or pastimes you love.
Sitting on your sitz tub, you can also catch up on your favorite shows on a tablet or smartphone device, you can take this time to learn a new language with a language app, you can watch funny videos, or you can sink yourself into a puzzle or word search. Your sitz bath is your relaxing experience, and you can make of it whatever it is you wish.
With a sitz bath basin, your favorite salts, and your toilet, you can begin looking at your bathroom as your home’s personal spa.
