After the whirlwind three weeks I’ve just had, relaxing and soothing my body with an herbal tea bath is just what the doctor ordered!
My little man (aka baby Isadore) decided to arrive 5 weeks early — well, it was actually because I had preeclamia. He probably would have stayed in there, nice and cozy, if he had the choice. As a result of these unfortunate circumstances and my symptoms persisting even after birth, I stayed at the hospital for a week and little Izzie was in the NICU for 2 weeks.
Now that we’re both home and getting into a new routine, these herbal tea baths are incredible for soothing my tired and sore (!) body, and calming the little guy. I actually filmed this video with Joy McCarthy of Joyous Health a few weeks before giving birth, but obviously was a bit delayed in sharing it with you!
These tea baths, made with soothing herbs like lavender, chamomile, and calendula, aren’t just for mom and baby but can be used by anyone. They are perfect for calming irritated, itchy skin, and relaxing both the body and mind. For the full recipe, head on over to the Joyous Health website.
