Tales From a Southern Mom recently had the good fortune of working with Motherlove Herbal Company in a review of their Birth and Baby Oil and Green Salve. Motherlove was also kind enough to include samples of their Diaper Rash & Thrush Salve and Rhoid Balm as mothers of tiny babies usually find themselves dealing with these issues as well.
The Birth and Baby Oil was the first product I tried. I used it on my own skin after a bath and it feels incredibly smooth and luxurious gliding on. It is made from apricot oil and has a heavenly and calming lavender scent, which comes from organic lavender oil. In fact, all of their products are certified organic. Its nice to know I’m being kind to the earth while I’m giving myself a little spoiling. I have to say though that I really love this product for my kids. I rub some on their skin when they are fresh from the bath and it’s so pleasant for them. It really makes nap and bed time easier when your child is already lulled into a snoozy state by the scent of lavender blooms.
Next I tried the Green Salve. This product is designed as a sort of all purpose herbal healing salve. It takes the sting and itch out of insect bites and stings. It also can be used as a healing salve for any type of skin irritation including diaper rash. My children have incredibly sensitive skin, and being of diaper wearing age, are prone to diaper rash. This product works fantastic for healing up irritated or chapped skin. I’m looking forward to packing it in the duffel bag for an upcoming camping trip- I’m sure we will get our fair share of mosquito bites!
Also brilliant for diaper rashes, is Motherlove’s Diaper Rash and Thrush salve. One of the particular types of diaper rash we struggle with at our house is thrush, and it can be so super stubborn to get rid of! This cream is very soothing to angry, red skin, and takes the heat out of a bad rash fast. I won’t say it was a hit, since my kids are pretty young, but I know it was appreciated!
And finally, as moms we all know that having babies can really wreak havoc on your body. Late in pregnancy I was troubled with hemorrhoids from baby causing pressure “down there” and sadly, those didn’t just go away as soon as baby was born. This salve is also certified organic, like all of Motherlove’s products, and worked instantly to help calm down hemorrhoids, reducing them in size and intensity immediately upon application.
I’d recommend Motherlove products for any mom, whether new mom or mom to be. I feel I can really stand behind their certified organic products, and would encourage anyone to check out their breastfeeding supplements and support references as well.
