New moms are beginning the most incredible and joyous adventure when they bring home (or are about to bring home) a new baby. Throughout this adventure, it’s common for any new mom to get so wrapped up in the life they’ve created they forget a bit about their own comfort and self-care. Our Postpartum Sitz Bath Salt is created with new moms in mind.
Who Should Take Epsom Salt Baths Postpartum?
Bringing new life into the world can cause quite a bit of stress on the body. After delivering a baby, it’s common for women to need a little soothing and comfort to get them back to feeling themselves.
Taking an epsom salt bath postpartum using USP grade epsom salt and aromatherapeutic essential oils makes the soothing process much easier. Still, it’s important to always talk to your doctor before relaxing in any postpartum soak.
Your medical team will be able to confidently assess if this type of bath will be safe, beneficial, and effective in soothing and comforting after your unique birth experience. They’ll be able to determine what length of bath is best for you, what temperature of bath you should take, and even how you may be able to enhance your bath experience to provide the most benefit.
What Is The Postpartum Bathing Experience Like?
Taking a postpartum bath with epsom salt should be a comforting and relaxing experience, and depending on the aromatherapy you choose, it can be invigorating, clarifying, and balancing as well. Sitting and soaking in your bath can provide you with that bit of me-time every new mom needs to get the full enjoyment out of her new family.
The soak you choose makes a big impact on your experience. Postpartum Bath Soak is a blend specially formulated with new moms in mind. This soak uses a base of USP grade epsom salt, fractionated MCT coconut oil, Vitamin C crystals, Vitamin E oil, and an aromatic blend of all-natural essential oils.
By opting for all-natural, new moms are less likely to be bothered by the fragrance of synthetic perfumes, and they can enjoy the therapeutic nature of smelling ingredients pulled straight from nature.
The Postpartum Bath Soak uses an essential oil blend comprised of frankincense, lavender, geranium, chamomile, and lemon. Frankincense is a grounding aroma, bringing your bath down to earth and centering you in mind and body. Lavender and chamomile are super-relaxer essential oils, helping to wash away the stresses of the day. Geranium and lemon are bright, refreshing, and calming, bringing clarifying and invigorating notes to your overall bath aroma.
A postpartum epsom salt bath can be taken in two ways – a traditional bath in a standard bathtub, or a sitz bath that focuses primarily on the bottom area. Either type of bath provides soothing and much welcomed me-time, along with the enjoyment of essential oils brought to your bath straight from nature.
