Let’s face it, if you give birth naturally even to the smallest of babies, something down there has got to give and your body is going to have to heal. After the birth of my daughter, Courtney gave me a tub of Neal’s Yard Lavender Bath Salts and they worked wonders. I think the mixture of the salt and the healing power of the lavender was exactly what my body needed. The salts also smell divine and made the whole flat smell like a spa.
I haven’t been able to find Neal’s Yard products here in Paris but a couple of days ago I picked up a tub of Occitane Lavender Bath Salts. Hopefully they will have the same desired effect.
I did truly LOVE these lavender bath salts! Like you said, both salt and lavender are healing agents, so it’s the perfect remedy.
Also, just having them around your home encourages you to take the time to soak in the bath and have a bit of relaxation (make your husband watch the baby for an hour, etc.)!!
Lavender is great and adding it to bath salts is just perfect.
It is anti-inflammatory and antiseptic at the same time, which makes it great for soothing cuts and bruises.
