Before I ever cracked it open, I was impressed that the first two ingredients are olive oil (which we’ve recommended before as a homemade solution for diaper rash) and calendula oil. It’s also loaded with essential oils, shea butter and jojoba.
The cream has a heavenly lavender smell, a smooth consistency and good coverage, which makes the diaper changing experience just a bit more pleasant. Located right here in my home state of Oregon, Earth Mama, Angel Baby Organics is a small company that specializes in natural products for mothers and infants.
I also love that the company makes Earth Mama Bottom Balm for recovering mothers. Since many of us had to deal with episiotomies, hemorrhoids and other delightful post partum injuries, it’s nice to know there’s a natural option.
But are either of these products worth the price? It depends on how much your little one is struggling with diaper rash or how much you need some soothing care after your labor. It seems a bit pricey at ten bucks an ounce, but it may be worth it to you depending on your circumstances.
Have any of you tried natural diaper creams or creams for post partum moms? What would you recommend? Thanks for your thoughts!
