If you don’t already know this about me I really like to live as “green” as possible. I also have changed my diet, because I am breastfeeding . My son is 17 days old so being new to this venture I am extra careful with what I am putting into my body.
After birth, though, you are usually in a bit of pain. You are swollen, and exhausted. If you are expecting, or know someone who is I have the PERFECT gift. I am so excited Sara from SisterBirth sent me these items to review! I got to test out the Organic Peri-Tea and the Organic Peri-Spray.
The first one I tried out while I was in the hospital. The Organic Peri-Spray was my best friend after having my son. It promotes healing and prevents infection. Let’s just get right down to it. Childbirth is beautiful and amazing, but it does A LOT to your body. Unless you are Super Woman, you are going to be sore. This Peri-Spray helps relieve the soreness, swelling, pain, and itching naturally. It smells like lavender as well, so you get that calming effect every time you use it. There is a note that Sara can take the lavender out if you don’t care for it. I thought the scent was perfect. It wasn’t too strong. It’s made with Organic Aloe, Witch Hazel and Organic Lavender. These can also be used for hemorrhoids as well, which can happen after childbirth.
The second item I got to use was the Peri-Tea.
The Organic Peri-Tea bath tea can be used in many ways.
1. In a sitz bath
2. In a peri-care bottle for use after using the bathroom
3. Poured over pads that are kept in the freezer/refrigerator and used as cold compresses
4. The bag itself can be cooled in the freezer/refrigerator and used as a concentrated cold compress
My favorite way was the sitz bath, and the cold compresses. I loved that these teas came in such a functional package. I enjoy loose leaf tea, but this was so much easier to work with especially when you just had a new baby. The Organic Peri-Tea promotes healing with natural herbs and sea salts. It also helps reduce soreness and itching.
For $21.oo you can get 3 large Organic Peri-Tea bags, (that can we used twice each), and a very nice sized Organic Peri-Spray. This would be a fantastic shower gift. Something for Mom, that people don’t think of. Or if you are expecting, this is definitely something you would like to have! Sara is actually a doula, and gives this package to her clients!
