Cleopatra Milk Bath
Milk baths have been done for centuries, and Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, was renowned for her glowing skin and beauty. Legend has it that she bathed in milk to keep her skin soft and beautiful (and in fact had 700 lactating donkeys to keep up with her daily regime)! Cleopatra wasn’t the only person in history to enjoy this extravagance, many other notable royalty have also indulged in milk baths - not only for the luxurious skin properties, but it was believed to be medicinal as well. Spas around the world are bringing this practice back in full swing, and now you too can enjoy a little dip into paradise.
Milk is extremely beneficial to your skin, as it is rich in vitamins and minerals — namely Vitamin E and zinc — which are super good for your skin. It is helpful for soothing skin irritation, and infuses your skin with hydration and elasticity. Milk also contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, which dissolve the proteins that hold together dead skin cells together. (In other words, it provides gentle exfoliation of your dead skin). Your skin will be radiant, and you’ll feel amazing!

The Serenity Postpartum Herbal Bath
Herbal baths can provide physical and emotional relaxation, and is perfectly suitable for those early postpartum days. Herbal baths can be heaven-sent on your sore bottom! There are many herbs that can be used to soothe tender bottom and perineum, and I’ve listed the ingredients of my herbal bath and along with their properties here. Essentially I have infused your herbal bath with herbs to help promote healing for tears, episiotomies, reduce swelling and inflammation from said area, and do the same for thosepesky hemorrhoids. It is also a great antiseptic and astringent. Overall, an herbal bath is not only relaxing but may also aid in the healing process. Perfect for soothing both your physical emotional well-being.
Your herbs are contained within a sachet of muslin so you don’t have to worry about clogging your drain with a ton of herbs (and you will still get all the wonderful healing benefits too).
I’ll provide you with a brand new peri-bottle and fill it with this soothing herbal solution.
If the idea of a full bath doesn’t sound good, that’s okay, consider a quick sitz bath, or I can leave you with the supplies and instructions so you can enjoy your bath when you are ready.
