Torn, Tender Skin?
Doctor Butler’s epsom salt for postpartum relief can be used for pain and discomfort during postpartum recovery. It’s a completely natural way to treat sensitive skin and other related conditions like hemorrhoids.
If you’re already using Dermaplast or another treatment spray and are looking for complementary relief between medicated treatments, epsom salt baths are a great option. The ingredients in our formula help to relieve inflamed skin.
Why add epsom salts to a sitz bath?
A soak in warm water alone cleans and calms inflamed skin, but adding Epsom salts does an even greater job reducing inflammation and soothing swollen, burning or itching skin.
That's because the salts combined with our lavender and vitamin E supplements provide natural anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and analgesic (pain relief) benefits beyond a simple warm water soak.
How to use our postpartum epsom salts
Making a Sitz bath with Epsom salts is simple and easy. This works with either a bathtub or a Sitz bath device.
∙ For bathtubs: Empty one cup of Soothing Bath Salts with the stream of running warm water. Warm water is better than hot because inflamed hemorrhoid tissue is tender and sensitive. Fill about 4-5 inches.
∙ For a Sitz bath device: Mix a half cup of Soothing Bath salts into running warm water. Use just enough water to dip into without the basin overflowing.
∙ Lower your backside into the bathwater mixture for 20 minutes to receive the full benefit of the Epsom salt soak for hemorrhoids.
∙ Once soaking is complete, rinse off with warm water (without salts), especially the anal area.
∙ When you dry off, pat dry the anal area to avoid irritation.
Four simple ingredients
Made with just Epsom salt, lavender oil, vitamin E and aloe vera for an easy, effective remedy. While pure lavender essential oil will be too harsh to put on skin, using the diluted concentration in our formula will provide the benefits without the irritation.
The added aloe and vitamin E help soothe tender skin as your recover from the pains of pregnancy or a cesarean section. And if you’re dealing with hemorrhoids from pregnancy, these salts will soothe those too.
