Postnatal Soothing Spray

Childbirth is one of the most amazing and taxing efforts the human body can make. For many women, postpartum recovery means sensitive skin, especially for those who have cracks or have had an episiotomy. Warm water sitz baths and sprays are often recommended to relieve this discomfort.

This natural postnatal soothing spray contains Lavender oil that can be used to soothe skin irritations. It also includes Frankincense oil that comes from a Boswellia tree and is used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese health practices. These oils work together to promote a soothing effect.
