We're starting our October special a little early this month! To continue the theme, this month is about postpartum, mom and newborn baby's health.
Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs - a "must have" for every birthing mom! Helps to heal and soothe the perineal area after birth, keeping swelling and pain to a minimum. Due to odd and unusual circumstances (a rare occurrence that never happens to anybody), when I birthed my baby, I ended up with a 3rd degree tear from my vagina to my rectum. Fortunately, I had a supply of Postpartum Sitz Bath frozen pads in my freezer all ready to go, I was able to use them right away and had NO (like zero!) pain or discomfort and my swelling was non-existent! I healed quickly and had no pain throughout the entire healing process! (Complete directions are given on the product label or HERE.) It's easy to see why this product won the Essential Postpartum Products for Mama and Baby 2015 award!
After Pain Relief Tincture - When moms birth their second (or subsequent) babies, they can experience "after pains", which can be as painful (or worse, say some moms!) as their labor pains were. This helps to quell those after pains, while still allowing the uterus to shrink back down to its normal shape and size. These pains tend to get worse after each subsequent birth. It's a good one to have on hand!
Nursing Mother's Liver Tonic - a gentle liver-cleansing and liver-supportive tincture specifically formulated for use by breastfeeding moms. It's especially helpful if medications were given during labor and birth.
Iron Tonic Tincture - this tincture is loaded with readily-available iron, which absorbs much better and doesn't run the risk of overdosing because its in plant (food) form. This tincture will not constipate, unlike pharmaceutical forms of iron supplements. The non-alcohol version can be used for babies, toddlers and kids (see the Children's Dosage Guide, available in our Articles & Information section). This is one of our most popular products!
Hemorrhoid Salve - people find this salve more helpful to them than other popular over-the-counter hemorrhoid creams, even with really bad, bleeding, sore and itchy hemorrhoids, and it is safe for use by pregnant and breastfeeding moms!
Healing Salve - this amazing salve will clear an average diaper rash within hours, and really bad rashes within 24 hours. Its also helpful to use on newborn baby's bum at every diaper change, as it prevents sticky meconium (baby's first poops which are like tar) from sticking to their tender skin, allowing for easy and gentle clean-up. Its helpful for any skin abrasion, rashes or burns! (Helpful hint: Get a large jar for your changing table and a small one for your diaper bag!)
Tummy Tincture - helps alleviate painful gas, colic, reflux, heartburn, indigestion or any sort of digestive or tummy complaint in either mom or baby. This is a great one to keep in one's purse for immediate relief!
Teething Tincture - this is one of our newer products, but has definitely become one of our most popular products! It helps to soothe babies and eliminate the pain and discomfort of teething. As well as being an effective pain-reliever and anti-inflammatory, it will help soothe and calm babies, even when they are in that "inconsolable" place. I actually really love this tincture for myself, as it helps to calm my nerves and stress without making me sleepy. A double-benefit!

OH, one more thing! My assistant and mentee, who is a doula, did some fantastic research and wrote an article on breastmilk, what's in it, how it provides a lifetime of health benefits for babies, and when to know how to introduce solids at THIS LINK. It's fascinating, easy to read and easy to understand! I hope you'll pop over and take a look!
Happy Autumn, much love, and have a fun and happy Halloween!
