If you have ever wondered "What the F#*k is a padsicle, and how do I make one?"...then you have come to the right place!!
So, What is a Padsicle?
A padsicle is a large maternity pad that helps your postpartum recovery go more smoothly. These sexy things are soaked with healing ingredients and kept in the freezer, providing cooling and soothing relief for your tender lady bits. Every time you wear one, your vagina will say "ah!
What Ingredients Do I Need?
Alright, I Need to Know How to Make These!
To begin, cut off several sheets of aluminum foil and place one maternity pad on each sheet. Then add about 120ml of witch hazel, 20 drops of lavender essenital oil, and 30ml of aloe vera gel to a spray bottle (I like to use a peri bottle). Now shake, shake, shake! Next, you will spray the mixture onto the pads. But be careful not to soak the pads too much, as they still have to do their job of collecting your lochia! Lastly, wrap each pad, place them all in a freezer bag, and into the freezer.
Voila! You have just made padsicles. Your lady bits will thank-you, and hopefully this little project has satisfied your nesting instict for the day!
