It’s so refreshing to know that there are so many options when it comes to natural baby skin care products these days. Once again I was fortunate enough to have more fabulous baby skin care products come to my attention from The Homestead Company. Created by a mother of five who wanted to share her knowledge of the benefits of natural and healthy ingredients. All products use ingredients provided by our generous Mother Nature.
Spring is here and so are dry cracked hands. If you’re a gardener then you know what I mean! My hands recently had the pleasure of being moisturized by the Super Smoothie Cream by Tawna Hill Baby. My skin soaked it up like a sponge leaving me with thoroughly satisfied hands with a light refreshing scent. I also tried it on my soon to be diaper free toddler who is still prone to the odd diaper rash. The girl loves to have her tush pampered with any variety of creams, balms, oils and talcs though I’d say this one stands out as one of the finer remedies. Made from organic hemp and almond oil as well as a lovely concoction of yummy smelling natural ingredients.
The Baby Organic line from Natures Paradise are almost like desserts rather than baby skin care products. The organic Coconut Moisturizing Lotion comes out smooth, silky and surprisingly fluffy like a mousse. Not only does it gently replenish dry skin but it smells heavenly. Close your eyes and imagine piña colada!
The organic Coconut Conditioning 2 in 1 Shampoo & Body was a hit with the kids. It is generally a whining, wimpering chore for both mommy and kids to get their hair washed. The novelty of foaming shampoo had them practically begging to get washed up.
And of course don’t forget the organic Coconut Hand Sanitizer. Using the most gentle bacterial fighting agents, this hand sanitizer kills 99.9% of germs. Keep it in the car or by the changing table to help keep hands clean.
All products are 100% chemical free and come in either unscented or coconut scented which I would highly recommend. Visit the Natures Paradise website to view their entire line of organic baby skin care products.
The zinc-free all natural baby Bum Bum Balm by Dimpleskins Naturals works like a charm. Made with organic calendula and lavendar, this product helps heal diaper rash without any nasty chemicals. Our youngest is at the stage where she will deny, deny, deny that she needs a diaper change. By the time she finally comes around, her little tush has a diaper rash. Slap some baby Bum Bum Balm on, problem solved!
These all natural therapeutic ointments by Théra Wise are a must have for the medicine cabinet. We especially liked the Vaporizing Decongestant Rub (hellooo New Year colds) and the Skin Healing Ointment. The Skin Healing Ointment also works great for diaper rash. Both can be used on the entire family though are advised to only use the Vaporizing Decongestant Rub on children 2 years and older. All four of the natural healing ointments contain bio-active botanical extracts, therapeutic nutrients and unique regenerative emollients that target healing on a cellular level.
Diaper changing just got a little easier and pleasant (hmmm… vanilla!) with the Baby Bottom line at Miessence Certified Organics. Made with natural organic ingredients, the Baby Bottom Cleansing Gel and the Baby Bottom Mist are a must at diaper changing time.
The Baby Bottom Cleansing Gel is an easy cleanup solution when using reusable cloth wipes to help keep landfills at bay. The soft scent of organic vanilla is dreamy and gentle enough for newborns. It’s also handy to carry with you to wipe up those gooey hands and faces.
Use the Baby Bottom Mist to easily apply relief to baby’s tender bum. No need to touch a sore diaper rash with this convenient and hygienic spray on salve. This handy mist also works to help sooth itches, sunburn, cuts and scrapes.
Here’s a quick little recipe for natural baby bum balm to help prevent and sooth diaper rash.
Melt shea butter and add remaining oils. When slightly cool, whip with mixer or hand blender until smooth and well-incorporated. Choose unscented or add a small amount of lavender oil (1-2 drops) for scent and antibacterial properties.
