I must say I am quite chuffed to bring you this review of Aromababy's products. When I was pregnant with my first child, I completed a Diploma of Aromatherapy (I am a qualified Aromatherapist) which I had been studying part time while I worked. Learning the powers of plants made me a bit of a fragrance snob in the process. I became very picky about scents and products containing them. (I was also violently ill with nausea in my pregnancy and couldn't handle many smells without severe consequences)! I learned to understand and appreciate natural ingredients and the chemistry within them that made them valid choices. Pregnancy made me even more careful about my body and the environment so I made the switch 100% to natural goods and organic foods as well.
Thirteen years ago when my daughter was born, there were very few natural products on the market and it was really only just becoming fashionable to use such things. I purchased my first jar of Aromababy's Barrier Balm at Myer when my daughter was just a few months old. From that first purchase I have been an Aromababy fan since and have continued to use these lovely products on all six of my children! (Who'd have thought there would be so many)!
Aromababy the company was founded in 1994 in Melbourne by Catherine Cervasio, a qualified Aromatherapist, infant massage instructor and Mum of two. The company focus is centered on the formulation of entirely natural products for Mums and babies. Importantly, ingredients are all natural, organic and formulated and manufactured from start to finish in Australia! All Aromababy's products are pure and pesticide free and 100% organic where possible. They contain no petro-chemicals, parabens, sulphates or propylene glycol. There are no animal ingredients, no animal testing and Aromababy is accredited with Choose Cruelty Free.
If that doesn't impress you enough, there's the products themselves. They all smell divine and contain the very best of the best. Oils such as sweet almond oil and essential oils such as rose for example, are very expensive and fine ingredients. Believe me when I say these products contain premium constituents and are about the best you can buy for your babies.
Miss Celeste (11 months), is my little Aromababy product tester. Presently she is eczema free. I say presently as I have several kids who suffer from eczema. Usually breastfeeding prevents it until the week they are weaned and then it appears literally overnight. I know I can rely on this range if she does have the misfortune to develop this skin condition down the track.
We were sent a beautiful giftpack of products to review. Celeste set about trying them out immediately!
For her hair: Aromababy's Pure Hair Cleanse with Organic Botanicals. This shampoo contains orange sweet essential oil and has been a favourite of mine for years. It adds the lovliest scent to a baby's head! I can't bear products that disguise that fresh cookie scent of a baby. This divine cleanser actually adds to that baby scent. She smells so sweet after a wash with this that I can't stop sniffing and cuddling her and that can only be good!
Next, Baby Bath Gel with Organic Lavender and Chamomile has been another staple in my nursery over the years. This bath gel has a lovely texture that melts into a bath releasing a beautiful lavender scent. Never overwhelming and gentle on the skin (including my hands). Again Celeste was just delicious to inhale during and after her bath!
Post bath we used Moisturising Nappy Change Cream with Organic Chamomile. Beautiful! Perfect for removing residues that wipes leave behind. A great mosturiser for little bottoms and can be used all over.
Lastly, one of my favourite items - the Barrier Balm. Small but powerful! This little potion is perfect for dribble rashes, teething rashes, eczema, dry skin, nappy rashes and so on. It contains calendula which is a superb healing agent. The texture of this balm is light and perfect for many uses. It can fit in your bag or pocket easily and works really well to heal stressed or damaged skin. (Makes a great alternative lip balm for Mums too)!
Celeste certainly approves!
If you haven't yet tried Aromababy, you can find it at Myer, quality maternity and childrenswear boutiques, Coochicoo (Vic), Bubs Babyshops (QLD), most major pharmacies, healthfood stores and premium organic stores throughout Australia. You can reach their website here.
