Ever wonder why our grand mothers had those flat tummies despite having many children? Well, that is the Aju Mbaise herbal tea secrets.
In some part of Igbo tribe in Nigeria, you cannot do omugwo without Aju mbaise and Uda because these spices are most medicinal to both mother and the newborn.
If you don’t believe in old wives tales, you should better believe now because it’s real and practical !
After having a baby that weighed almost 3-4 points, your stomach should be darker and bigger which may be alarming to you as the rest of your body may remain fair. As much disturbed as you think in removing that colour and leftover bump, that is where the bigger role of your mother comes into play and that is when the typical Omugwo for the Igbo people in Nigeria starts as soon as your back from the hospital.
During bath time, your mother should slap your stomach with a towel that had been dipped in a scorching hot water. The water should always be so hot that she would barely be able to hold the towel in her hand while she wrings some of it out before slapping and then rubbing your stomach down with it. It should be done twice a day for 2 complete weeks. She would ask you to sit on a sitz bath. Some people use only hot water while others do add salt or antiseptic cleanser. Your seat for the whole of that period should be wooden especially if you had a tear during delivery to enable it heal and tighten faster.
Your meals should be more of watery foods like yam pepper soup also known in Igbo as ji mmiri oku, or Ofe Nsala/White Soup with pounded yam. The soups must be cooked with a blend of spices that are specially chosen for new mothers namely aju mbaise, Uda, Uziza and Ehuru (Igbo names).
These spices are healthy for new mothers as the benefits are many.
- They are used to flush any lochia out and also flattens the stomach. This is very important as any lochia that remains in the body after a certain amount of time may cause puffiness in the face and legs.
- They can be drank like tea early in the morning before breakfast and late at night after dinner for 2-3 months.
- They also prevent stomach upset ( collic) in newborns.
- They enable heavy flow of breast milk for the newborn which is added advantage for exclusive mothers.
After 2-3 months of passing through these omugwo process, the new mother should be glowing, healthy, strong with a more flatter stomach and slimmer body .
All the newness shows the effectiveness of those spices combined with balanced diet and good rest.
And it goes a long way to prove that your mother’s presence, care and her labour of love for you and her grandchild were not in vain.
