How to use a herbal bath tea to treat skin irritations in infants

For both pregnant women and infants, skin irritations can be a constant source of frustration. Whether it's a mild rash or a more serious condition like eczema, these issues cause discomfort and distress for both mom and baby, and finding a gentle yet effective solution is important.

This is where the magic of a good herbal bath tea comes in. It offers a natural remedy, soothing and healing irritated skin for both moms and their little ones. 

In this blog article, we'll share the step-by-step process of using herbal bath tea to alleviate skin irritations and restore comfort to your little one.

Introduction to Our Herbal Bath Tea

Our herbal bath tea is designed as a natural remedy for skin irritations, with the healing properties of carefully selected herbs. The bath tea is suitable for both infants and pregnant women, providing a versatile and safe option for soothing irritated skin. The blend of herbs works together to calm inflammation, reduce itching, and promote overall skin health.

Ingredients and Their Benefits

The key ingredients in our herbal bath tea include chamomile, calendula, lavender, red acalypha, and colloidal oats. Each of these ingredients offers unique benefits for the skin:

  • Chamomile: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, chamomile helps reduce redness and soothes irritated skin. Its natural calming effect makes it ideal for treating sensitive skin conditions, promoting faster healing and comfort.
  • Calendula: This herb promotes healing and has natural antiseptic properties, making it ideal for treating minor cuts and rashes. Calendula is also known for its ability to stimulate collagen production, aiding in skin repair and rejuvenation.
  • Lavender: Lavender calms the skin and provides a relaxing aroma, perfect for a soothing bath. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make it effective in treating minor skin infections and soothing irritated skin.
  • Red Acalypha: This herb is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties, helping to prevent infections and promote healthy skin. Red acalypha also soothes inflammation and reduces itching.
  • Colloidal Oats: Oats are renowned for their moisturizing properties and ability to relieve itching, making them a staple in many skin treatments. Colloidal oats form a protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and relieving dryness and irritation.

Step-by-Step Guide to Using the Herbal Bath Tea 

Step 1: Get Ready

Gather everything you need: 1 or 2 sachets of Pure Sensitive Bath Tea, a bowl containing 12 cups of freshly boiled water, a washcloth, and a soft towel.

Step 2: Preparation
Steep 1 or 2 herbal pouches in 12 cups of freshly boiled water for 8 minutes. Allow the infusion to cool until it is warm, not hot, to ensure it is safe for your baby’s delicate skin.

Step 3: Application

Option 1 - Soak Wash: Soak a washcloth into the warm herbal infusion. Use the soaked washcloth as a warm compress, gently applying it to the irritated areas of the body. The warmth and the healing properties of the herbs will help soothe and calm the skin.

Option 2 - Soak Pour: After a shower, pour the warm herbal infusion over the body before drying off. Let the skin absorb the herbal infusion without rinsing it off with water. This method allows the skin to fully benefit from the herbal properties, providing ongoing relief and hydration.

Frequency and Expected Results

Use the herbal bath tea daily once you notice a skin irritation. The earlier you start treating the issue, the better your chances of clearing it before it gets out of hand. Regular use will help maintain skin health and prevent future outbreaks. Noticeable improvements in skin irritation typically occur within 1-2 weeks.

After the skin irritation clears, continue using the bath tea for 3-4 more days to ensure the skin is completely healed before stopping use. The calming effects of the bath tea will also contribute to a more relaxed and happy baby.

Additional Tips and Precautions

  • Always ensure the herbal infusion is at a safe and comfortable temperature to prevent burns or discomfort.
  • Before full use, test a small area of your baby’s skin with the herbal bath tea to check for any allergic reactions. Although our product is made from natural ingredients, it’s always best to be cautious.
  • Consult with a healthcare professional before using the bath tea if your baby has any pre-existing skin conditions or allergies. They can guide you on the best way to incorporate bath tea into your baby’s skincare routine.
  • Following the bath, apply a gentle moisturizer to hydrate the skin and a body oil to lock in moisture.  You can also use an oil specially formulated for combating skin irritations to achieve the best results
