Almost everyone has had a bad bout of multiple bowel movements that have irritated those sensitive ‘bum” (aka anal) tissues. Whether it was because of diarrhea or any other number of reasons you know what I’m talking about.
Having an irritated ‘bum’ can make you feel miserable. Dreading each following BM knowing you have to ‘clean’ and well, you know it hurts. Plain and simple, it literally is a P.I.T.A. (pain in the a**).
Recently I went through a liver & bowel cleanse and detox. And guess what? Yep that caused a lot of ‘bum’ irritation. The suggested product for help with this during ‘the cleanse’ said to use petroleum jelly or another ‘greasy’ based hemorrhoid product. Well, neither of them worked and I was getting desperate. They were annoying to ‘try’ to apply and all they did was make a ‘mess’ of my underclothes.
So I made a wonderful blend using some of our cream bases by adding some Jojoba, Rosehipseed oil, Lavender, a drop of Rose Otto and several drops of Helichrysum .
TaDA!! Relief at last! Not only did it feel great to apply, it quickly took the discomfort away immediately. Helichrysum, and Lavender have analgesic properties along with anti-pruritic (anti-itch) and anti-inflammatory properties that quickly quieted down the irritated tissues. It made going and wiping much more comfortable!
I kept the jar of ‘bum cream’ in a cool place in the bathroom so it was handy.
Remember to always wash your ‘bum’, dry it well, then with clean fingers apply just a small amount to the irritated anal tissues.
NO double dipping into the jar of cream as you don’t want to accidently contaminate it. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying. Apply as often as you need too, especially after each bathroom visit!
This cream can be used on any age person as it is very gentle and soothing.
