Lavender

A well-loved calming and relaxing herb, lavender is also a potent anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and skin healing herb with pain-relieving properties.  We included it in our new mother’s bath herbs because it is particularly useful in alleviating tension, spasms and pain, as well as in supporting the healing process after childbirth. 

Raspberry leaf 

Raspberry leaf is a powerful astringent with specific affinity for the female reproductive system. It gently tones the pelvic floor muscles and has a powerful vulnerary action, meaning that it can help heal wounds internally and externally. It is also rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. 

Calendula

Calendula is a great ally for new mums recovering from childbirth. It is a gentle but powerful wound healer: it heals and soothes the skin by promoting cell repair. It also acts as an antiseptic, so it can help prevent or treat any infections, wounds or rashes. This well-loved bright orange flower is often included in herbal skincare recipes. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from damage caused by stress or pollutants. 

Yarrow

One of the most widely used medicinal plants in the world, yarrow is a fantastic healer, and very often used to support mothers through childbirth and postpartum. It has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, making it ideal to support the healing process for any wounds or swelling. It is antispasmodic, meaning that it relieves cramps and spasms. Yarrow also supports healthy circulation and alleviates pelvic congestion. It eases and relaxes uterine tension and helps to stanch any excessive bleeding.  

Ribwort plantain

A wonderfully soothing and nourishing herb, plantain contains a wide array of vitamins and minerals, including  silica – one of the building blocks for the skin –, potassium and calcium.  It is wound healing, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, working to soothe and nourish the skin and clear bacterial, fungal and viral infections. As an astringent herb, it helps to stop any excessive bleeding and to gently heal any infections, wounds, boils or abscesses. 

Rose petals

Aromatically, the delicate smell of rose alone is enough to calm and fill a busy mind with a loving reassurance that all will be ok. We use rose petals in our new mother’s bath herbs because they are perfect for uplifting the mood as well as tonifying, nourishing and calming the skin. Rose not only strengthens the nervous system and balances the emotions, it is anti-inflammatory, wound healing and astringent, gently helping to tighten and tone the skin.  

Chamomile

The golden yellow flowerheads of German chamomile alleviate inflammation and skin irritation, support the natural healing process, and soothe any tension. In addition to its delightfully bright aroma, chamomile is a mild nervous system sedative, which means that it gently reduces restlessness, irritability, tension, anxiety and insomnia. Research has shown that the anti-inflammatory constituents of chamomile are well absorbed when applied externally, and reach the deep layers of the skin. 

Lady’s mantle

Lady’s mantle is well known as a female reproductive tonic and wound healer. It helps regulate irregular cycles, relieves cramps, and helps to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. It is in our New mother’s bath herbs because its astringent properties help to tone the pelvic floor muscles and uterus after childbirth. It also regulates hormones, reduces vaginal discharge, alleviates irritation, prevents infections, helps to stop any bleeding and promotes a healthy vaginal flora – all of which are wonderfully supportive in the new mum’s recovery process.
