Compresses—or fomentations, as they’re often called in herbalism—are clean linens or washcloths soaked in hot or cold herbal infusions to help accelerate your body’s natural healing process. Used hot or cold, depending on your situation, they can bring energy to the compressed area of the body and help the body focus on healing.
