    I used lavender oil, that's what the midwives said to use and it worked really well. Instantly felt more comfortable and they healed quickly. Apparently on its own, the oil just sits on top of the water so put a few drops in a glass of milk then pour the glass under running water.x

    tea tree oil here too! can either run a very shallow bath, put some drops in and just shloosh about in it for a bit or get a jug of warm water with a few drops in and pour it down your floof whilst you are peeing.

    although I found peeing whilst sitting right forward with legs wide open stopped the sting.

    I also put a few drops on my maternity pads

    I used Cussons Mum & Me New Mum Calm and soothe bath soak. It contains arnica which is great for healing, I found tea tree oil too oily in the water but it did help soothe. xx
