Growing Up Herbal review/giveaway! {closed}

Whenever I can, I choose natural products, especially for Indy. But it is surprisingly hard to find products that are 100% natural, even at the health-food store, so I was excited to find Growing Up Herbal on etsy. The owner, Meagan, makes a variety of natural skin and healthcare products for children, from body wash to herbal throat syrup, and was kind enough to send me a sample of her "Natural Tushies Cloth Diaper Cream." I gotta say that I really like this stuff! A blend of all-natural ingredients (Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Wildcrafted Candelilla Wax, Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Comfrey Leaf {Symphytum officinale}, Organic Plantain Leaf {Plantago major}, Arnica flowers {Arnica montana}, Organic Calendula flowers {Calendula officinalis}, Organic Olive Leaf, 100% Pure Essential Oils), it's a cross between a balm and a cream, with a consistency similar to dairy butter, and a soft lavender scent.

It's melts easily at body temperature and spreads smoothly, and makes an excellent "barrier cream" at every diaper change to protect baby's bum from wetness. This cream is completely cloth diaper safe, but would obviously work great with disposables as well. The ingredients soothe irritation, making it great as an all over balm for rashes or dry skin, even for litttle ones who are out of diapers (and for mommies, too). Indy has pretty awful eczema on her thighs, and this balm is awesome for that! Just be sure to keep this out of a hot car or your back pocket, as it will melt in warmer temperatures.

If you want to try some Growing Up Herbal goods for yourself, now is your chance! Meagan has generoursly agreed to give away a 4 oz. tin of diaper cream, as well as a 1.5 oz. talc-free "Healthy Tushies Herbal Baby Powder" (an $18 value).

You can also use coupon code "GUHNOELM" to get 5% off your first order along with the chance to get more discounts on future orders, so head on over to Growing Up Herbal and check it out!

Indy turns two!

Indy turned two yesterday! I can't believe it has already been a year since she turned one. It has been one of the fastest years of my life, and it has been so fun to watch her grow.

We didn't want to have a huge to-do, so we just gathered the family together for dinner at the local childrens restaurant "Two Toots," where your food comes out on a track atop a model train, and where they happen to have pretty good grassfed burgers! Then we came home for some mama-made cake (sprouted molasses spice cake with a strawberry-rhubarb marshmallow frosting) and some present opening. Such a great way to celebrate a little life!

The blurry aftermath.
