Sits in the bath.
Get it? ;}
Sometimes, a bath full of your favorite herb or treatment would be just the thing. But that can take quite a lot of herbs, or whatever, to get the concentration you need in the water.
Sitz baths are a nice way to conserve the amount of herbs you use, yet get it to the place that needs it most.
You can also soak your scalp, foot, hand, arm, or knee in a sitz bath.
