I had my first child in August of 2003. Although that was a mere 6 years ago, no one was talking about the safety of baby products, synthetic fragrances, petroleum-based oils or parabens. How fortunate for new mothers and moms-to-be that so much has changed in just a few years! I can now say I’ve tried almost a dozen natural and organic baby products, and many of them are simply amazing. My current favorite in the pack is Erbaorganics, a 100% natural, nearly 100% organic affordable line of skin care for mother and baby.
What sets this line apart from its peers is the aroma. Organic lavendar is combined with other soothing organic essential oils to create aromas that are out of this world, immediately calming both mind and body. If you’ve already had children, you know why this is manna from heaven.
For babies, the organic essential oil blend in Erbaorganics products induces sleepiness (thank GOD for lavender!!!) and calms them when they’re fussy. Erbaorgnics founders Robin Brown and Anna Cirronis also harnessed the oils’ healing properties to create a dreamy, creamy diaper cream (and I don’t refer to a lot of diaper creams, or a lot of anything for that matter, as “dreamy”). I have used all of the baby products on my children, and have become addicted to the scent that’s left on my hands for the remainder of the evening. My children love it, and their skin loves it. After having gone through at least a dozen commercial brands with my first baby, I can’t say enough about how happy I am to have found skin-friendly, non-toxic baby products that work.
As I mentioned earlier, it’s not just the babies that benefit from this line of aromatherapy disguised as skin care. The stretch mark cream almost makes me want to have another baby, just so I can use it (calm down, mom, I said almost). Whether or not a cream can actually reduce or prevent stretch marks is almost beside the point. This lotion is so rich, creamy and moisturizing, any mommy-to-be would benefit from rubbing this all over her belly – and arms, legs, feet, ears, wherever. And for the bath, nothing beats Erbaorganics Milk & Oat bath. One whiff of this stuff and you’ll want to dump the entire container of it in the tub. Which I recommend against, because then you won’t have any for the next night when you decide you absolutely must take another bath or the world just won’t be right again.
Of course, you don’t have to be a parent to need a bit of aromatherapeutic love at the end of a stressful day. If you work the kind of job that has you on your feet all day, you will LOVE the Foot & Leg Refresher. Lavender, along with peppermint, ginger, cypress and geranium oils (all organic) will immediately breathe life back into your aching arches as they work together to increase circulation and reduce swelling. Simply apply, put your feet up, and say ahhhhhhh.
As if this weren’t enough, the line is extremely affordable, too. Plus, for a limited time at The Nature of Beauty, buy any 1 item from Erbaorganics, and get a 2nd for 25% off!
