One thing I hate about the Winter is chapped lips! I hate the feeling of your lips peeling on top of being red and dry. It can be really painful, especially if you are using the wrong kind of chapstick! I've learned over the years that you can't buy the cheap stuff unless you plan to put it on 30 times a day. I avoid anything with paraffin and beeswax because those seem to make the peeling worse. You also want to check the ingredients before you make your purchase because believe it or not there can be toxic junk in your lip balm. Lots of big named brands use ingredients like synthetic fragrances and colors- such as FD&C yellow, isopropyl lanolate, methylparaben and propylparaben which all are high hazards according to the Cosmetic Database.
Some of you might remember an older review of Earth Mama Angel Baby a few months ago for their fabulous Happy Mama Spray and Angel Baby Shampoo. They just sent me their Mint Herbal Lip Balm and Angel Baby Bath Blossoms and I'm still really in love with the company!
Earth Mama Angel Baby is an amazing site that sells non-toxic pregnancy, labor, postpartum, breastfeeding, baby loss comfort, and Angel baby products. They also have a plethora of information about their products, natural remedies, child birth, breastfeeding, infant safety, and even the loss of a child. When I lost my first child, I didn't know there were such sites to help me through my loss. So if one of your friends or family members loses a child, please send them to the Earth Mama Angel Baby site! There are even numerous gifts you can purchase to help them heal.
But, on to happy things like great lip balms and relaxing baths! The Mint Herbal Lip Balm goes on very smooth and feels like a gloss once it's on. It's not thick and you can feel the organic olive oil and organic shea butter moisturize your lips. I also like that the lip balm is made with candelilla wax, which is obtained by boiling candelilla leaves. The lip balm also contains organic calendula extract, organic St. John's wort extract, vitamin E, and pure essential oils. The silky smoothness lasts about an hour, but your lips don't feel scratchy when it wears off like other balms can do. The Mint Herbal Lip Balm is priced like other lip balms at only $3.95. If you only want to order the lip balm, call customer service so you aren't overcharged for shipping!
I also got to try the Angel Baby Bath Blossoms and my bath was sooo relaxing with the blossoms when I had the flu! I could barely smell anything during my whole sickness, but I was able to smell the relaxing aroma permeating from my hot bath. I decided to use this product on me instead of Ella because mama needs pampering too! She always gets to try the fun bath products. The Bath Blossoms container comes with organic blossoms of calendula, chamomile, rosebuds and lavender along with organic lemon balm and organic oatmeal. It also has a pouch that you can put the blossoms in and then put into the bath. It's kind of like your bath becomes a huge tea pot. You can even use the bag as a wash cloth during your bath. I loved the soothing oatmeal! The Angel Baby Bath Blossoms are only $8.95!
