I have heard multiple times how sore my who-ha is going to be after delivery. So I’ve been looking into all my options to help give me some relief (I guess that’s the best way to put it). SO here’s my recipe for these massive cooling who-ha pads.


Biggest pads you can find (I used overnight pads with the wings)
Witch Hazel

Aloe Vera
Lavender Essential Oil (I used Young Living)


  1. Partially unwrap a few pads at a time, but don’t detach the wrapper. Spread aloe vera generously up and down the whole pad. Don’t just do the middle part – spread it further down almost to the bottom of the pad.
  2. Pour about a teaspoon of witch hazel down the middle.
  3. Add a few drops of lavender oil. Fold the pads back up to how they were and stick them in a gallon sized plastic bag, then freeze.
  4. Pull them out of the freezer one by one as needed and let them thaw for two or three minutes before use.
