Postpartum Soothing Spray

Postpartum Soothing Spray

Childbirth is one of the most amazing and taxing efforts the human body can perform. For many women, recovery after labor and delivery involves tender skin, especially for those who experience tearing or receive an episiotomy. Warm water sitz baths and sprays are often recommended to help alleviate some of this discomfort.
This natural postpartum spray includes Lavender oil which can be used to soothe occasional skin irritations. It also includes Frankincense oil which comes from a Boswellia tree and has been used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese health practices. These oils work together to promote a soothing environment.

Ingredients
6 tablespoons witch hazel
4 tablespoons filtered water
5 drops Lavender oil
5 drops Frankincense oil

Instructions

  1. Combine witch hazel and water in a small glass spray bottle. (The bottle pictured here is much larger, to demonstrate a larger portion.)
  2. Add Lavender oil and Frankincense oil.
  3. Shake well and apply to perineum, or spray onto feminine hygiene pads for a cooling effect.
