Lotus

SOAKS

by Luna Rain Botanicals

A Lotus Soak is our affectionate term for a sitz bath, a common hydrotherapy treatment for delivering medicine to the pelvic area by soaking just your bottom in a small tea bath. Soaking, not steaming, is recommended to help clear your yoni of an active viral, fungal or bacterial infection, and to immediately soothe pain and irritation. With a Lotus Soak you are also able to chill the herbal tea when you would like to remove excess heat from your body system.  We offer 2 herbal blends for Lotus Soaks:

Lotus Soak

Our Clear & Protect formula is a blend of herbs historically used to clear infection, repair tissue and restore your body’s protection.

This blend is especially formulated to help clear active viral, fungal or bacterial infections, and to immediately soothe pain and irritation.

For a warm water Lotus Soak: Simmer 1/4 – 3/4 cup herbs in 2-3 quarts of water, covered, for 2-3 min. Make it stronger if you have strong symptoms or weaker if you will soak more often. Remove from heat & cool to comfortably warm and soothing temperature. DO NOT USE HOT WATER – TEST TEMPERATURE ON YOUR WRIST. Strain and pour tea in sitz bath pan, baby bath tub, large pot or similar, and soak your bottom for at least 15 minutes. You can also douche with this tea. Do this daily, up to 3x’s a day if symptoms are acute, until symptoms disappear. Then continue soaking for the length of time you had the imbalance while gradually soaking less often.

Our Cool & Balanced formula is a blend of herbs historically used to calm down, cool down, & balance the body system, especially during hormonal changes.*  While you soak in the cool herbal tea, the spearmint will assist your body in releasing excess and built-up heat, hot emotions, and stress.  The Licorice, Rose and Motherwort will support the adrenal (stress regulating) and endocrine (hormonal regulating) systems, while the Oatstraw soothes and softens dry, delicate tissues.

Current Formula: Roses, Oatstraw, Licorice Root, Motherwort and Spearmint.  Because we are committed to using only Organically Grown ingredients, herbs may vary with season.
