  • 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. Just trust me on that.
  • Pour about a teaspoon of witch hazel down the middle.

  • 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.
  • Pull them out of the freezer, one by one, as needed and let them thaw for two or three minutes before use.



Always Overnight Maxi with wings are the pads I prefer for this. 
The essential oil is optional, but lavender oil does have healing properties so I recommend using it if you can! Also, it smells amazing.
