Padsicles 101

Congratulations! You’ve just given birth to your little bundle of joy! After such a momentous event, it’s understandable that your focus is now on healing. If you delivered vaginally, most hospitals and gynecologists will send you home with oversized pads and suggest that you spray them with witch hazel and add a few drops of essential oils. After placing them in the freezer you will have your very own “padsicle.”

The point of these DIY padsicles is to help heal and soothe the vagina after giving birth. Any postpartum mothers that are healing from tears, episiotomies or just general inflammation after labor will find relief utilizing these.

Our postpartum pads are the perfect pre-made “padsicle” as they are already infused with lavender, rose, mint and aloe essential oils. You only need to spray them with witch hazel and pop them in the freezer for a healthy way to heal after giving birth. The vagina is the most absorbent organ on a woman’s body, so true healing begins with these pads. The powerful combination of antifungal witch hazel and the soothing properties of lavender, rose oil, aloe and other essential oils help to nurture the vagina while reducing inflammation and improving circulation.
