HealFast postpartum herbal bath infusion–you need it too, admit it


A girlfriend through the Enlightened Mama community & natural birth world, Cori, makes these beautiful organic postpartum herbal bath kits. And when she asked if I wanted to review one and do a giveaway for my readers I jumped at the chance.

Find HealFast Postpartum Herbal Compres & Bath Infusion on etsy & facebook & youtube with a great new video! If you’re local, you can also purchase them at Enlightened Mama or Blooma.

Cori Levin as the founder of HealFast is a mother of two girls, prenatal yoga instructor {Blooma Minneapolis}, birth doula, and Thai massage practitioner {Enlightened Mama}. She teaches people on and off the mat to follow their hearts!


My own doula, Liz, chief mama at Enlightened Mama, brought them to the hospital when I was recovering from my 10 pound baby. I filled the tub in the room up and draped the pouch of herbs under the running water with the string slung over the faucet. The smell was what hit me first–oh, wow, that’s refreshing after being surrounded by hospital smell (you know what I mean). Then the bath was relaxing, soothing, and I used the same bag again and again, just wringing it out and letting it dry beside the tub.

The nurses kept asking about that nice smell in my bathroom. I can only suppose most of them don’t smell as sweet.

HealFast is an organic herbal therapy designed to relieve pain and boost emotional and physical well-being. A handcrafted selection of herbs is wrapped in a muslin compress for different use options. It can be used in a bath in muslin bag or made into a concentrated tea for many uses. HealFast eases swollen, stretched vaginal muscles and tissues after birth. It aids in healing episiotomy and perineum bruising and alleviates pain from prenatal and postpartum hemorrhoids.

It can be slung over your faucet and add hot water into the tub: voila! a bath for your bum bum. As my oldest kept saying Oh, mama, you have aches and pains and need a bath with your sack of yellow flowersWhy yes, yes I did.

Then when Cori brought some over to me to give to you, she told me about brewing it as a tea. Then she suggested to either soak cotton pads {maxi or whatnot} in it and freeze–yes, that was very nice–use in peri bottle for spraying afflicted area–yup, liked that too—or adding to your bath that way, which I didn’t do because I just couldn’t spare the tea. I had to use it all up the first two ways.

As I write this, I’m 11 weeks out. It took my body 7 weeks to truly heal from a tough bout of infections and a very big baby who gave a whole new meaning to the word “shredded.” TMI? So sorry#notsorry–sorry. I used Cori’s bath kit the whole way through. When I had finally wrung it out for the last time just the other night, I was pretty bummed. {See how punny I am?} It almost makes me look forward to having another baby. And yes, I’m sure we’ll have another baby, God willing. Almost.

Giveaway time. You know what to do:

    I may use it now (currently 5 weeks postpartum) or later, God-willing, with our next. Or, perhaps, I may gift it to a friend who is due in a few weeks. Depends on how generous I feel at the time. 😉

    • Natural Mama Nell on August 5, 2014 at 7:03 pm

      How are you feeling, Laurel? I hope these first five weeks have been not too terrible. Haha–use it for yourself 🙂

  5. […] told you about my friend Cori and her life saving (bottom parts saving) herbal bath, […]
