Baby Balm *GREEN PARENT Nappy Cream WINNER*

Little Herbs


Banish nappy rash with Little Herbs gentle 100% organic Baby Balm.  Promotes healing and protects delicate skin.

This pure and simple salve uses a blend of three traditional herbs (chamomile, calendula and chickweed), known for their healing, soothing and calming properties.

Chamomile is well known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergenic and gently sedative properties. Calendula (you might know it as marigold) has impressive anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, as well as skin-soothing and healing powers. An all-rounder, it can reduce itching, redness, pain and swelling of insect bites and rashes, soothes sunburn, cuts, scrapes and dry or chapped hands. Finally, chickweed is also well known as a skin healer, calming irritation and inflammation, and protecting injured tissue from further damage by supplying  cells with repairing vitamins A and C.

All three herbs work hard to soothe and heal soreness and rashes and are infused in easily absorbed, light, organic sunflower oil for at least three weeks to gain maximum healing power. Sunflower seed oil is medically proven to help maintain the skin's proper balance, particularly in young babies, as well as being recognised for its nutritious, skin calming qualities. Local beeswax is used in our Baby Balm to help preserve freshness, make it easy to handle and to offer the skin moisture resistance.

These ingredients create a breathable, healthy barrier to keep skin well-protected against harsh nappy wetness.

Baby Balm comes from Apple Island in Somerset. It is always a sunny day on Apple Island, because on Apple Island it only ever rains after bedtime and before getting-up time. It's a magical place full of wonderul characters - Babby Balm, Soothing Sal, Bobby Oil, Tommy Rub, Bessy Balm, Bertie Butter -  who have lots of adventures with the rabbits and other animals in among the flowers and along the riverbanks
