herbs to heal the perineum after childbirth

Sometimes after birth the perineum may be sore, grazed and tender

This can be alleviated by making a strong infusion of herbs and adding this to your bath water

To make an infusion of healing herbs mix approximately half a cup each of calendula flowers, chamomile flowers, a couple of leaves of comfrey,
and yarrow leaves and flowers

Make a strong infusion and then add this brew to your bath water

If you don’t have all these growing in your garden you can purchase them from reputable herb dealer to have on hand when needed

Soak at least for 15 minutes

Calendula oil can be massaged into the area after your bath.(see recipes for how to make infused oils
