The amazing organic herbs such as comfrey leaf, witch hazel, lavender and yarrow in Postpartum Bath Herbs have a long history of being allies for postpartum women. They help reduce swelling and speed healing of vaginal soreness, episiotomies, perineal bruising and hemorrhoids.
Fill the included muslin bag full of these healing herbs, steep like a tea bag, and then place this soothing herbal poultice on your perineum either warm or refrigerated. It is ideal to add to warm baths or sitz baths and provides welcome relief of prenatal hemorrhoids, too...naturally.

I like an instant relief the herbs provide. I think they do help to heal. Also, I don't think it's necessary to fill the bag full like intructions say. I just use about 3 tsp - last much longer! (I apply the baggy directly to the area).
