After Moon, herbs & salts soak for menstrual and postpartum relief
We tend to forget that our skin is the body's largest organ by far and it's able to absorb a ton of nutrients, and baths are an excellent delivery system for the active constituents in herbal medicines.
Real talk...Periods suck! The cramping and bloating, the heavy flow, the pain in the back and thighs; the headaches, the irritability and the overall feeling of discomfort or uneasiness during your menstrual cycle. After Moon is a blend of herbs and salts that work together to help ease those yucky symptoms associated with your Moon time and help uplift your spirits to have you feeling a bit more like the "you" you feel, post Moon. These specific herbs have been used in herbal tea drinks and even in vaginal steams and are known to aid in PMS and discomfort, hormonal imbalance, irregular cycles and overall reproductive health.
Aromatherapy and mineral-rich salts enhance the natural healing and soothing effects of a warm bath while hydrating skin, reducing inflammation and making it extra soft.
