Post Natal Bliss healing bath herbs

$9.50 each

The most popular of the Blissful Herbs range.

This special blend of healing herbs is excellent for healing the perineum or caesarean scar after childbirth.

Your Post Natal Bliss herbs - 

* reduce swelling & discomfort
* prevent infection
* provide pain relief for healing tissues and help muscles relax
* speed the healing of caesarean & vaginal sutures, and vaginal tears, grazes & 'skidmarks'
* relieve perineal bruising and soreness
* shrink and heal haemorrhoids.

The Post Natal Bliss herbs come with a draw-string muslin bag which works like a big tea bag.
To enjoy a relaxing herbal soak, simply place the herbs in your muslin sachet and add to a warm bath. Soothing for the healing tissues - and the natural fragrances smell heavenly. Pure bliss for the post-natal mama and the ideal gift for any new mother. These herbs are safe for you to take your little newborn into the bath with you for some lovely skin-to-skin cuddles and boobing - just make sure someone is there to help both of you out safely, and make sure you stay well hydrated and the bath is not *too* hot. I suggest the mother enjoys the bath for about 10 minutes on her own before taking her newborn in with her - by that time, the bath water temperature will be just about right.

You can also use these herbs to make some healing herbal liquid for your Perineal Irrigation Bottle. Place the herbal sachet in a non-metallic glass or bowl. Pour on hot water, cover and allow to steep for about 10 minutes. Then pour the warm herbal liquid into your bottle. The bottle has a specially designed lid that provides a gentle stream to cleanse the perineum, this is easiest to do while seated on the toilet. The combination of the herbal baths plus using the peri-cleanse bottle between times greatly speeds post-natal healing.

I advise using the Post Natal herbs during the first week post-partum because that is when you'll most notice the therapeutic benefit. So it is good to have them ready at hand before the baby is born. They make a wonderful Mother Blessing or Baby Shower gift!

The Post Natal Bliss herbs contain:

* Calendula officinalis - anti-septic, soothing wound inflammation, general wound healing

* Celtic Sea Salt - helpful in soothing, cleansing and healing of wounds.

* Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) - analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory properties

* Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris) - astringent, and helps protect healing elastin fibres

* Lavender (Lavandula officinalis) - antiseptic, analgesic and anti-bacterial properties

* Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis) - astringent, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties

* Sage (Salvia officinalis) - astringent, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties

* Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris) - astringent, anti-septic and useful to reduce bleeding and bruising

* Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) - an astringent, curbs bleeding and reduces inflammation

* Yarrow (Achellia millefolium) - astringent and anti-bacterial properties; the anti-spasmodic effects reduce inflammation. A superior remedy for wounds and cuts.

These are the perfect gift for any new mother, especially suitable following a vaginal birth, but also lovely to support healing following caeasarean birth.

I suggest a minimum of 25 g for a decent bath - though to be honest, I usually use more like 50 g in my herbal baths!

This is how I do it:

Fill the muslin bag with the loose herbs. 

Place in a large Pyrex bowl.

Pour on hot water from the kettle until the sachet in totally immersed.

Put a plate over the bowl as a lid, to prevent the essential oils from escaping, and steep for 15 minutes or so.

In the meantime - run your bath.

Reserve some of the herbal liquid from your bowl to fill your peri bottle and set aside. You might want to save a little more herbal liquid in another container, to re-fill your peri bottle later.

Now: add everything left in the bowl to your bath - herbal liquid, wet sachet and all.

Feel free to add Epsom's Salts, Sea Salt, essential oils or petals to your bath. Candles, music - why not!

These herbs are perfectly safe for you to take your baby into the bath with you - just make sure there is someone around to help you both get out safely, and make sure the bath water isn't too hot for baby.

Step in and gently stir with your body ...

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I have some Post Natal Bliss herbs left over. What can I use them for?

A: These are useful, multi-purpose healing herbs to have in the bathroom shelf. Note the 'best before' date on the back of your packet and put them to good use before that date. Any skin condition will benefit from a soak with these herbs. We've used these herbs for nappy rash, eczema, sunburn, urticaria, boils, haemorrhoids and to help the healing of cuts, scrapes and grazes. (Don't laugh but even when our chooks are poorly, we give them a herbal bath to kill off any infections ...)


  1. Amazing for healing tears!
    By on February 25, 2024

    We had a freebirth and I ended up with what I would say is a 2nd/3rd degree tear! This was super alarming to me and I wasn’t quite prepared for it (or so I thought). My option was to spend time in the emergency and get stitches or heal it myself. I decided to trust fully in these herbs and their power to heal on our own. I made up a brew and put it into a spray bottle and sprayed on every pad change, I also made a yoni steaming stool and steamed every few days using these herbs. Only 10-ish days later and my tear is almost fully healed!
    I am truly grateful for these herbal blend and how empowering it made me feel on my healing journey.
    Thank you!

  2. Absolute healing bliss
    By on July 15, 2023

    I had a very fast and intense birth which resulted in stitches and a lot of post parts discomfort. I was nervous at first about getting into the bath but as soon as I eased in rot the water filled with the most beautiful aroma of herbs I was instantly soothed. The day after the first bath was the first day I felt better and was able to move with more ease. The experience felt like such a gift back to my body after all the hard work of pregnancy and labour. Ive now started buying this as a gift to my pregnant friends.

  3. A great gift for my clients...

    I love sharing these lovely herbs with the women I support! I regularly gift this little pack to my clients and they are always gratefully received. Such a nice part of continuing the healing journey after birth.

  4. The best bath herbs
    By on November 5, 2021

    I was gifted the Post Natal Bliss pack after my second child. It truly did wonders, my recovery was much quicker, smoother and a breeze. It helped so much with my recovery but also my state of mind. I cannot recommend the Post Natal Bliss healing bath herbs enough. A year later and I have just made another order ready to go for my next pregnancy.

  5. Perfect for my homemade padsicles
    By on August 12, 2021

    I used the liquid of these steeped to make post- partum padsicles. So soothing and healing and something that made me feel human again post birth.

  6. Great excuse to have long relaxing baths postpartum!!!
    By on November 6, 2020

    I had third degree tears after giving birth to my third bub and therefore had many stitches. I had three baths with these herbs in the first week post partum and also boiled the herbs and poured them into the Peri bottle and used every time I used the toilet. I healed so quickly and fast than my previous two births that I also tore and had stitches. The Peri bottle is amazing!!!!!

  8. Peace, love & healing
    By on March 1, 2020

    I loved everything in my Homebirth Kit, but the Post Natal Bliss healing bath herbs were the BEST. Not only physically healing, but mentally & spiritually soothing! The fact that I 'had' to indulge in a bath each evening in the week or so post partum was soooooo good. Whilst sitting, healing, I had precious time to myself to reflect on my beautiful homebirth, and each day with my tiny newborn, and some moments of peace. Thank you.

  9. Lovely recovery bath
    By on June 25, 2018

    The combination of herbs and sea salt makes for a wonderful and nurturing post-natal bath. When I finally got a moment to myself, this was the perfect way to restore some vitality and relax for a while. I love that my bub can also share in the bath time love too!

  10. Heavenly healing bath
    By on June 19, 2018

    I was gifted the post natal bliss herbs mix after giving birth and I used them with my Bub for our first bath together. It was so lovely soothing and healing. Highly recommend putting one in your next baby shower gift for the Mum that has everything.

  11. My clients love your herbs
    By on June 14, 2018

    Thanks Julie for these beautiful herbs for the postpartum period. I've been buying them to give to my clients after birth for years now. Recently I received the following feedback: "Thank you so much for the herbs, they are amazing. My breasts were so engorged and swollen and as soon as I had a bath they settled down and have been perfect since."

  12. repeat customer!
    By on May 18, 2018

    I've used these amazing herbs twice now and just gifted some to a another new mama. A perfect healing and nourishing time for mama and baby and I love when my big kids hop in and enjoy the bonding time too!

  13. The best thing after birth
    By on May 2, 2018

    That first pee after birth was so extremely daunting - luckily I had my partner steep some of the Post Natal Bliss herbs in water and filled up the perineal irrigation bottle. It was such a lifesaver using this on the loo while peeing! No burn, no pain, no discomfort! I had a teapot next to the toilet for weeks that was continually filled up ready to go for when my irrigation bottle ran empty. I recommend this to all my pregnant friends!

  14. Life saver!
    By on April 27, 2018

    This herbal mix has been a life saver for me! Highly recommend it to help with the healing process after any birth. With my 2nd child I had a lot of trauma with an episitotomy down below and I was in a lot of pain. My nightly baths with this mix was literally my life saver. It soothed me so much and helped me to heal.

  15. BLISS!
    By on March 6, 2018

    After Mahli was born and I'd had a shower, my beautiful Doula Shelly prepared my bath using the Post Natal Bliss healing Bath Herbs AND the amazing petals. It was the most beautiful moment sipping on the No-Bleed tea, drinking grape juice & breastfeeding, relaxing in this incredible soak. We did this for about a week and I also prepared it in the Perineal Irrigation Bottle which I kept by the loo for the first 10 days. This was amazing within itself! Another highly recommended product from Julie <3
    It was also made for some beautiful photos <3

  16. Amazing!
    By on March 2, 2018

    I absolutely love this blend and use it with all my doula clients. They give great feedback and find it so soothing and healing.
    Highly recommended.

  17. Essential post birth healing herbs
    By on February 21, 2018

    I always pre-make a batch of the post natal bliss healing herbs for women whose births I am supporting so they are ready to use as soon as they have had their baby. They can't believe how soothed they feel post birth & how quickly they heal after a vaginal birth. Every woman should have a bag of these herbs in their birthing supplies. They get my SUPER recommendation!!

  18. Perfect for Post Birth
    By on February 20, 2018

    I’ve used these herbs after two births. Both for daily relaxing baths and in a peri bottle to keep my perineal tear clean throughout the day. I’m convinced that these herbs help in my speedy recovery post birth. Second degree tears healed beautifully with no complications. My babies first baths have been in this herbal bath with pretty petals. Makes for a beautiful first bath experience.

  19. Bathtime Bliss
    By on February 20, 2018

    Before the birth of our second child I treated myself to some goodies to use post-birth, post natal bliss & pretty petals were amongst them and I'm so glad I did! Such a special time for myself and my babies to share in a healing, fragrant bath that was so lovely to share with them!
