Reviving the tradition of beautiful calendula-based products.
The ingredients of Natural Yogi’s Mother and Baby Chamomile and Calendula Range are chosen specifically for their natural purity and gentleness for babies’ skins. Ingredients include high-quality cold-pressed natural oils as well as Beeswax and Shea Butter. Light (high linoleic) oils that are specifically recommended to maintain the barrier function of babies’ skins are predominantly used. The value of Beeswax, Shea Butter and natural oils for babies is that they create a nourishing boundary to protect baby’s delicate skin but unlike petroleum/mineral-based products, they allow the skin to breathe.
With their gentle soothing and healing properties Calendula and Chamomile are the traditional herbs of choice for babies’ skins. Calendula works wonders on any kind of a rash, skin irritation or even sunburn. It is proven to increase the rate of healing. Both herb extracts are also gorgeously gentle to the touch – soothing the skin and also the nervous system.
Calendula Body/Baby Butter
This is the healing and soothing all-round go-to for babies and all, perfect for irritation – from dry skin to suburn to insect bites to eczema. It offers a wonderful boundary function as a bum cream. Mum’s can use it as a luxuriously-soothing hand cream – and even nipple cream with its soothing, healing, food-grade ingredients.
At Natural Yogi we don’t believe in making things more complicated than what they really are. If a product serves various purposes then we recommend to use it for various purposes. It also cuts down on excess packaging. Like all of Natural Yogi’s Body Butters the Calendula Body/Baby Butter also comes in a biodegradable bioplastic refill pack.
Chamomile and Calendula Baby Massage Oil
The benefits of baby massage are well known – touch being so important for an infant’s development. For a little one touch is communication, it is bonding, it is the discovery of the pleasure of exchange, of relationship. The ritual of baby massage offers us the opportunity to explore this consciously with our little one. It is also wonderfully soothing and calming to the nervous system, encouraging rest and digestion.
In a blend of sunflower oil (high linoleic), sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil, the Chamomile and Calendula Baby Massage Oil adds a touch of these herbs to be soothing not only to the skin but also the entire nervous system. Both Chamomile and Calendula have also been shown to soothe muscle spasms and cholic.
A lovely time to massage is after a bath. You can also add a few drops to bath water for extra skin-nourishment. For some helpful guidelines on baby massage see https://www.babycentre.co.uk/a1042915/massaging-your-baby, or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqJ89-NNxiA
Mom’s Calendula Nipple Balm
Painful, sometimes cracked, and even bleeding nipples can be a significant challenge for breastfeeding moms – either when they first start breastfeeding or later when the baby gets teeth. Latch problems are often at the base of the problem but a good healing nipple balm can be a great help.
Sometimes inflamed and cracked nipples can result from – or become more susceptible to – a viral infection. Natural Yogi’s Mum’s Calendula Nipple Balm makes use of the extraordinary healing and soothing powers of in particular Calendula – but also Beeswax and Shea Butter. Calendula is shown to speed up wound-recovery with its powerful antiviral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Simply apply to nipples after breastfeeding. The ingredients (all food-grade) are absolutely safe for baby so you won’t need to wash your nipples before breastfeeding.
Natural Yogi Calendula Healing Salve
Natural Yogi deodorants were created as an amazingly effective alternative to chemical-laden antiperspirants, with an awareness in particular of what we take into the lymphatic tissue of our armpits that connects directly to our mammory tissue. Moreover, Natural Yogi Deodorants don’t restrict the flow of perspiration so that toxins don’t build up in the breast tissue. Camilyang, with Chamomile and Ylang Ylang offers a soft, lovely, neutral scent.
