Confinement herbal bath is traditionally used by Asian Chinese women after childbirth such as in Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong. Based on traditional formula, the herbal bath is not only suitable for women during their confinement or postpartum month but also for individuals who have “wind-related”, wind-dampness, body ache discomfort issues. The herbal bath is especially beneficial for mummies who cannot follow the confinement practices of no showering, no washing hair and no contact with cold water after giving birth especially in hot and humid Singapore. In fact, contrary to Chinese confinement myths, it is very important for mothers to bathe in order to observe personal hygiene during the confinement month. The herbs are essential for postnatal mummies recovery as they help to improve blood circulation in meridians, dispel wind, dampness and relieve pain. Otherwise, mummies may suffer from wind-dampness (feng shi) commonly known as rheumatism which can cause intermittent pain that affect the joints or connective tissue as they aged. However, as this is a traditional medicine, anyone with health or skin concerns is advised to consult your pharmacist, doctor, TCM or Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner first before use as a precaution. There are replacement as well which besides Da Feng Ai (Blumea balsamifera or Sambong), some confinement nannies will use lemongrass instead for mummies to shower.
