Over the last several months my family has been using their Herbal Liquid Soap. This stuff is the bomb! (that’s supposed to be funny…bomb- balm…get it??)
The consistency is absolutely perfect. Not runny, thick, herbally-fragrant, completely safe for my sensitive skin, lathers wonderfully even in hard water and a little goes a pretty good ways.
I really like the pump bottle it comes in. The bottle is aluminum and the pump is a sturdy plastic. I have used the same bottle, refilling it when necessary, since the beginning and it’s still pumping. Maybe it’s just me but I always seem to pump a bottle to its death. This one has survived a family of 7 pumping it a lot.
That seems like a tangent but it’s important! I can’t imagine going back to bar soap ever. It’s so much cleaner to use a liquid soap–no soap scum on the tub!
THinc. Skin is giving away 1 Mama & Baby Herbal Liquid Soap Kit!
But, wait! There’s more!
My current rash cream of choice is made by Meagan Visser of Growing Up Herbal.
After each diaper change I apply plenty of Natural Tushies Cloth Diaper Cream. The redness is gone next change every time. The soothing properties of Comfrey and Plaintain leaf combined with healing Calendula flowers is just what Camden’s irritated skin needs.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a bit freakish when it comes to consistency of a product. That’s my first critique of any balm/salve/ointment.
Of course, whether or not it works is pretty darn important as well.
One aspect that makes this cream different from others is a very small amount spreads a long way. I tend to scoop out a bunch when I use creams or ointments but that’s wasteful with Natural Tushies.
The consistency is partially solid then almost melts at body temperature. When I smooth it on I feel a slight warmth emitted. Camden calms down when I put it on him as opposed to another cream I grabbed recently that made him cry. Not good.
Growing Up Herbal is giving away 2 Natural Tushies Cloth Diaper Cream 4oz tins and bottles of Herbal Baby Powder!
On a side note, Meagan has some other fantastic products in her store. Two in particular that caught my eye are the Herbal Yeast Cream and Cold Care Kit for Children. We have all passed around the cold and now Sterling has croup.
As much as I hate to admit it, I’ve been suffering from a yeast infection under my arms. Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet while traveling and depressed immune system have led to this wonderful moment. (For those wondering, I was using an OTC fungal cream- it did nothing- then switched to a GFSE wash which is clearing it up.)
5 different winners will be chosen on Friday November 16th!
