Then, there’s Organic Perineal Balm – to help promote ongoing relief. Here, we give you some herbal comfort that’s going to last longer than a quick spritz (yessssss). Feel free to use it after you bathe — two or three times a day. Organic Perineal Balm also contains lavender and peppermint essential oils, and witch hazel like the spray.
The balm is infused with four different herbs:
- Organic witch hazel – again, to help swelling
- Organic calendula – helps promote wound healing, historically considered beneficial for reducing inflammation
- St. John’s wort – also helps promote wound healing, and can also help with nerve pain
- Yarrow – used for centuries as a traditional wound treatment, and has been known to help reduce and/or stop bleeding
Plus, lavender and peppermint essential oils – the benefits of which we talked about above.
Organic Perineal Balm lasts longer because it sits on the skin, allowing the herbal goodness to really do its thing.
One of the mamas in a previous squad developed varicose veins in her vulva. Yep. That’s about as fun as it sounds. She found relief from this uncomfortable part of her pregnancy by applying Organic Perineal Balm on a regular basis. She also recommended laying down more often to take pressure off her lower half and submerging in water to help relieve pressure. It’s an honestly written post, with Audrey’s signature humor.
