Sitz or hip baths are a bath where one sits in water up to the hips.

They have traditionally been used to relieve discomfort and pain in the lower region of the body; including the vulva and rectum. It is believed to work by keeping the affected area free of infection, increasing blood circulation and tightening and healing this tender tissue.

*includes a muslin bag for steeping


Calendula Flower, Plantain Leaf, Comfrey Leaf, Witch Hazel Leaf, Lavender Flower, Yarrow Flower, Strawberry Leaf, Lady's Mantle Leaf, Sea Salt


Soak in soothing sitzbath 1-3 times a day after delivery for up to 2 weeks. Place a handful (approx. 1 cup) into a quart of boiling water. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain out herbs and add remaining liquid to warm water in Sitztub, or in your home tub filled slightly to just cover the affected area. Less conveniently, in large bowl or small tub may be used instead. Do not over-dilute in a full bathtub.
