A customer walked into my shop and asked me if there was any herbal stuff which she could use it for post-natal bathing. I recommended her the Chinese Herbal Bath. She just needs to boil the herbal bag and bathes with the herbal water. It could expel wind from her body.
She wanted the Windy Oil and I could see that she's a new mother. I told her to rub the oil with both palms before applying to the baby's stomach.
I also recommended her the herbal soup where she could boil and drink it for vitality and health. Since she's so new, I told her to boil red dates as her daily drinks during confinement.
She then told me that she has just given birth to her baby ten days ago. I told her that she's not supposed to come out and do shopping. She should be resting at home. Her husband should do the shopping instead. Her husband was nodding his head in agreement.
I said, "Confinement time is your time. You should be resting and treated like a queen."
But one question she kept asking me: "Can I consume all these? Will it afect my baby? I'm breastfeeding."
Well, I told her that what's she taking is nutritious for both mum and baby. They are not medication.
Guess she believes in me and thanking me for my advices, she went away happily..
I realized that since I work in the shop, I am more like a consultant as I need to advice my customers about stuff that they want to know.
