It is so important that you take the best of care from the minute your little ones are born, to put all natural products on them. I will have a series of posts with DIY products you can make and use on your baby, buy for your baby, and the reasons why you should do this for your baby…
Did you know that most baby products are full of chemicals? Toxins? Harmful to your baby. When you put products that have synthetic chemical ingredients in them, they absorb into your baby/child’s skin in a matter of seconds. It is not hard to make your own DIY products to keep your child safe from these harmful additives. Using all natural ingredients are cheaper, will safe you money in addition to keeping your baby safe.
CALMING BABY POWDER
Making your own baby powder is super easy and inexpensive. Baby Powder has been around for a long time. When we think of baby powder, we think soft and innocent. It’s not as innocent as it may sound. Baby powder has contained “talc” for centuries. Talc is related to asbestos and has been linked to various cancers. Fragrance, another ingredient found in commercial powders, contains synthetics that may be harmful to your baby’s delicate skin.
We have created a natural alternative and it actually works better! Without the side effects of chemical causing diseases. Just use it as you would regular baby powder. Naturally absorbs, keeps moisture in, soothes, and keeps the skin soft.
We start off with Arrowroot Powder which is used for it’s absorbent properties and never made from GMO crops.
Calendula powder for deodorizing and soothing skin benefits.
Lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties and is soothing to the skin in addition to healing.
Oatmeal is just all around great for the skin, especially sensitive skin. It’s anti-inflammatory properties help to sooth irritation and treat inflammation. It helps to keep skin clean and clear. It also contains “saponins” which is a cleansing agent.
Bentonite Clay is composed of volcanic ash. It is a unique clay, when combined with liquid has the ability to absorb toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and impurities, hence, it helps in keeping your baby from getting a diaper rash.
