Holiday Gift Guide #3

December 15, 2010

Its time for Part three of the Saffron Rouge Holiday Gift Guide! In our first installment, we talked about that special lady on your list. The second was all about those har to buy for guys. Today, let talk about the kids!

For the little person on your list:

BabyBearShop Wishy Wash Organic Baby Wash & Shampoo: Bath time is such a special time with babies or toddlers. They love it! It is unwinding for them to play in water/bubbles filling and dumping while they relax. Peace of mind is yours knowing that BabyBearShop does not use any harsh chemicals or petroleum derivatives in any of their products. All BabyBearShop products are 99% organic and contain nothing artificial. They contain only the safest highest quality organic and wild crafted essential oils.

BabyBearShop All the Better To Kiss You With Lip Balm: The Holiday Kiss Kit is a beautifully packaged Lip Balm Trio perfect for small children as well as their Mom’s and Dads. It has Pepperminty, Lavender Vanilla and Chai Mandarin. However these Lip Balms are all available in singles as well.  The new Pomegranate is great!

Weleda Calendula Diaper Care Cream: This Diaper Cream is sure to win you points with the Mom that receives it. It contains 12% zinc oxide and is extremely healing, making diaper rash is a thing of the past. Weleda’s Baby Care is the #1 brand recommended brand by midwives in Europe.

Erbaviva Sniffles Chest Balm and Badger Aromatic Chest Balm: These are common staples in my medicine cabinet during cold & flu season. They are a safe alternative to petroleum rubs. I also recommend some Erbaviva Sniffle Bath Essence in the tub at bedtime or in a bowl of hot water beside the bed or crib. You can also go with Primavera Eucalyptus Essential Oil in a bowl of hot water. I like to get it set up in my kids rooms about 20 minutes before they go to bed to help clear airways so that breathing is easier.

Dr Hauschka Moor Lavender Body Oil: Moor Lavender Body Oil is often recommended by anthroposophical practitioners to help ground the body. It is the perfect ending to the day of a busy toddler, child or teenager. The lavender scent is enveloping and soothing. This Body Oil has peat moss (Moor) in it so it is like a lotion/oil combination. It requires shaking before every application to mix it properly. We also have many clients who purchase it for loved ones who are in hospital beds for prolonged periods.

Badger Baby Oil: This one is a multitasker! It can be used on baby everywhere from head to toe. It is effective as a moisturizer, but also for the diaper area and helpful against cradle cap. The scent is soft and calming. Infant massage is a wonderful way to bond with baby and there is evidence that suggests that being touched is an essential component of optimum health, which in early life is vital. Infant massage helps with digestion and relaxes the baby. These babies usually sleep better and grow faster with less chance of tummy troubles or fussiness.
