A sitz bath is often used to bring relief to a sore or irritated bottom, and can be beneficial after childbirth. Fat and the Moon's Mama Sitz is an herbal blend designed to soothe the postpartum perineum.
Packaging: Fat and the Moon uses 100% plant-based "plastic" for their pouches, making them compostable. Can't compost? Toss them in the trash. They will break down quickly in the landfill. These pouches cannot be recycled.
Use:Add three tablespoons of the Mama Sitz herbs and add it to a quart-sized jar. Fill the jar with boiling water and let the herbs steep for a minimum of half an hour. Steeping overnight is ideal. You can gently rewarm the tea before use.
Add the strong tea to a warm, shallow bath (enough water to submerge your bottom). Add a ¼ cup of sea salt to the tub —sitz for 20+ minutes. Continue this practice once a day for a month.
Cold therapy option: Using the same tea (sans salt), saturate a clean cloth folded into a shape that will fit into a menstrual pad. Freeze the saturated tea cloth, then place it on top of a sanitary pad to wear. It’s like a popsicle outta the ice cream truck on a hot summer day ... for your yoni.
Other uses: Add tea to a peri-bottle and use as you would with water.
Care:Lasts 6 months (dried and un-steeped). Store in a cool and dry place. Fat and the Moon products are organic, freshly made, and free of preservatives.
