Bathed with the herbs and washed my hair with tap water 2 days after I was discharged from the hospital. Cannot tahan ! Sooooo hot! But I only bath every few days.
The herbs aren't strong smelling, so it's ok. I also used a shower cream that is specially catered for confinement use. It has quite a pleasant smell.
I know some people say that boiled water must be used for the herbal bath. But I take short cut. Just boil the herbal tea bag with water, then mix it with cold tap water. dont't want to boil water, allow it to cool, then mix it with hot boiled water - very troublesome.
Several times a day, I'll clean my stitches with warm tap water.
