A special postpartum tea bath! Take 3 tablespoons of the Mama Sitz herbs and add to a quart mason jar. Fill the jar with boiling water and let the herbs steep for a minimum of a half hour. Steeping overnight is ideal, you can gently rewarm the tea before use. Add the strong tea to a warm shallow bath (just enough water to submerge your lower half). Add a ¼ cup of sea salt to the bath for a greater healing effect. Use for 20 minutes or more, once a day for a month.
• Using the same tea, saturate a clean cloth folded into a shape that will fit into a menstrual pad. Freeze the tea saturated cloth, then place on top of a clean pad to wear.
• Add tea to a peri-bottle and use as you would with water.
• Continue to use after postpartum repair for yeast or bacterial invasions.
