What are padsicles?
A padsicle is a sanitary napkin (pad) that's put in the freezer then put in your underwear to relieve pain and encourage healing after a vaginal birth. They not only ease pain, but also reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort associated with hemorrhoids and vaginal stitches.
Pads (You can choose the brand you want; however, Honey Pot Postpartum Pads come with Lavender & Aloe already in them, all you need to add is witch hazel)
Essential Oil (Lavender) - Optional
How do you make them?
Partially unwrap a few pads at a time but don't detach the wrapper.
Spread the aloe down the entire pad (from end to end).
Pour a teaspoon of witch hazel down the middle.
Add a few drops of lavender (Optional).
