We laid out 8 pads all unwrapped and drizzled witch hazel over them. You don’t want to completely saturate them because you still want them to function as pads after having a baby. Witch Hazel is known for it’s soothing properties and ability to reduce swelling and slow bleeding so it is a perfect remedy for your nether regions after having a baby.
We then added several drops of lavender essential oil. Many recipes I saw recommended everything from Frankinsense to Helichrysum for their healing properties. We only had lavender on hand so we went with that.
Pop those babies in the freezer and impatiently wait for your baby to be born!!
I have been so happy to see the relief on women’s faces as we apply these after a birth. They are SO refreshing and delightful.
Do you have any essential postpartum treats that you just can’t live without? Comment or message them to me-I’d love to hear about them!!
*UPDATE! One of my good friends offered some awesome advice! She made these and put all of the ingredients in a spray bottle to help distribute the witch hazel and oils more evenly! Brilliant! She also recommended Geranium Essential Oil for it’s healing properties. Also, I keep seeing recommendations for this brand of witch hazel because its a blend with aloe vera! Amazing. Keep the suggestions coming!
