Aloe vera and Calendula have been shown to considerably increase the speed of episiotomy wound healing.
The effect of Aloe Vera on post-episiotomy pain and wound healing showed significant differences in the healing scores. "Also 5 days after the intervention, the participants in the intervention group reported significantly lower pain scores in comparison with control group."
Horsetail "significantly decreased episiotomy pain intensity and promoted wound healing in comparison with placebo."

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can this be placed directly onto grazes and small tears or to episiotomy?
It's designed to be used for spreading onto padsicles primarily. Whereas the Postnatal Herbal Spray has been designed for direct use onto these areas. They can also be used at the same time. Having said that, I would assume the Padsicle Gel would still provide some relief if a small amount is applied directly given its constituents.
