Seedlings Shampoo and Baby Lotion

Two more wonderful additions to the Seedlings line of products are the new Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo, and the Seedlings Lotion.

There’s nothing like the smell of a baby’s freshly washed skin. Bath time can be even more soothing and sweet with the scent of Seedlings Baby Wash & Shampoo. It is lightly scented with the Calm blend of pure essential oils—featuring Lavender for its soothing, calming aroma. It is an extra gentle formula that leaves skin and hair clean, soft, and smooth without over-drying. Plus, it is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and vegan friendly. Watch for this exciting tear-free product to be added to the Seedlings Line soon! You’re going to love it!

Our love of lotion begins early in life. We love skin that is soft, hydrated and smells pleasant. Young Living’s gentle moisturizer is specially formulated for infants’ delicate skin. This non-greasy lotion supports moisture barrier function and smoothly absorbs into a baby’s skin, leaving it moisturized, soft, and smooth. It’s made with skin-nourishing ingredients and a Lavender-infused essential oil blend. I love the light fragrance of this lotion and wouldn’t mind using it on myself! Just saying…

Keeping your baby clean and dry

Keeping your infant clean and comfortable can be a challenge sometimes! Well, OK, lots of times. If you are a parent of a newborn, you know how challenging a “blow-out” can be! Sometimes you have to bring out the big guns to clean up the mess!

Have you thought about what chemicals are in the disposable wipes you are using? And for that matter, are you sure they are leaving your baby’s skin clean and protected?

Young Living Seedlings has two wonderful products you are going to fall in love with immediately.

Seedlings Wipes are generously sized for the biggest messes at feeding or diapering time. They smell great and are 100% safe for your baby’s skin.

And then there is the Seedings Diaper Rash Cream. It is registered with the FDA as an Over The Counter medication, and does an amazing job at relieving, preventing and treating diaper rash.

And on a side note, both these products are great for everyone in the family. I love the Wipes for removing makeup. The Diaper Rash Cream will soothe and protect the most sensitive areas of any body, no matter what age! I do love how versatile Young Living’s products are. Seriously, you really need to get them!

Seedlings Baby Oil

One of the first products your baby receives in a gift basket at the hospital is Baby Oil. Did you do your homework and discover what ingredients it contains that you probably don’t want to be putting on your newborn (or yourself, for that matter)?

In contrast, Young Living’s Seedlings Baby Oil is formulated specially for an infant’s delicate skin. This mild, gentle product contains 100 percent pure essential oils diluted to an appropriate strength, and its naturally derived, plant-based formula is lightly scented with our Calm blend of Lavender, Coriander, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, and Geranium. Check the ingredient list to see how it compares to the other brand. Go back to the Environmental Working Group’s website and I know you will be pleasantly surprised at how clean the Seedlings Baby Oil really is!

The non-greasy formula moisturizes, soothes, and nourishes a baby’s skin. It absorbs smoothly; provides a light, calm aroma; and promotes a relaxing environment. Formulated without mineral oil, it is vegan friendly and suitable for everyday use. It is also dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic.

Seedlings Baby Oil is formulated with “dry” carrier oils that moisturize and absorb quickly and thoroughly into the skin, leaving a baby’s skin soft, hydrated, and smooth after applying.

Establishing a bedtime routine is very important in helping your baby get used to and look forward to restful sleep. Seedlings Baby Oil can be applied using baby massage techniques for sweet bonding with your little one.

Let’s talk about babies!

We want the best for the little ones in our lives. We want our babies to be safe, healthy and happy.

Do you ever wonder about the products you use on your baby’s skin? Did you know that it only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals you put on your child’s skin to enter the bloodstream?

Young Living cares deeply about the health of your entire family, including the youngest to the oldest. That’s why the Seedlings line of products was developed. You can be assured that the quality of this line is the best, and you can trust these products to go on even your precious newborn!

I am so thankful for Young Living’s commitment to give us safe products of the highest quality, backed by solid up-to-date scientific research.

This month we will focus on products and oils for infants. But keep in mind that as we age, the skin becomes more vulnerable, so you may also find some nuggets to keep in mind when also caring for the elderly members of your family.

First, let’s take a look at what is NOT in the Young Living Seedlings products. They are free from alcohol, parabens, phthalates petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances or synthetic dyes. All these ingredients have the potential to cause a lifetime of health challenges. Is that what you want for your little one?

I encourage you to pick any three products you currently use on your baby and read the label. What ingredients do you find that could be harmful to yourself or your child? If you are unsure, make a note of the Environmental Working Group’s website where you can look up ingredients and how they rate for safety. Be sure to also check their Skin Deep page.

Do your homework and check our next post to discover the wonderful products Young Living has to offer. If you have questions please contact me at joyce@ShareScents.com.

Men travel light

When men travel, as a general rule they pack much lighter than the ladies do. Usually my quart baggie is jam packed with various bottles of liquids and gels to get through TSA security. My husband on the other hand will have only a few items in his baggie! Toothpaste, Shampoo, Soap, Lotion, Deodorant, and Lip Balm are typical for him.

Apparently Young Living “gets it”! One of the great products recently released is Shutran 3-IN-1 Men’s Wash. It’s a face wash, shampoo and body wash all in one. It was created specifically for men and infused with the rich, woodsy Shutran essential oil blend.

The Sutran 3-IN-1 Men’s Wash comes in two sizes. An 8-ounce bottle for the home shower, and a 3-ounce size that is TSA compliant. I love how they thought that out!

True to Young Living’s standard of providing safe products that are free of harmful chemicals, Shutran 3-IN-1 Men’s Wash is formulated with 100 percent plant-based, naturally derived ingredients. It is free of gluten and soy ingredients, but is not certified gluten-free. It is vegan friendly, has been dermatologist tested and is hypoallergenic. It does not contain sulfates, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic colorants.

What a great product to have when you want to travel light and still use top quality personal care products!

Travel tips

Gone are the days when we could take anything and everything we use at home on a plane with us. I remember the days when we carried a whole case full of personal care products and snacks and you-name-it right on the plane with us. Those days are over. Now, we have the 3-1-1 rule. One 1-quart bag to hold all our liquids and gels and none of those containers can be larger than 3 ounces.

If you are a serious essential oils user, this can be a frustrating thing. You want all you healthy non-toxic personal care products. You want your healthy snacks. AND you want your essential oils! No, you’re not asking for the moon and stars, you just want your beloved oils and products!

I get that. I want to share two solutions with you and a tip.

The Bon Voyage Travel Kit is awesome! It’s a collection of commonly used personal care products, all in TSA approved sizes!  YEAH! Love this. Truly, you do need this!

Sample Bottles for your favorite oils. When I go on a long trip, I never know what I might need. Granted, I might only need a few drops, but I want to have all the oils I reach for often. The sample bottles I carry hold about 20-25 drops. I get the Young Living Bottle Labels and stick them on the sides of the bottles so I know what oil is in the bottle. I have been known to carry as many as 50 sample bottles on a trip! And guess what, they all fit in my quart bag along with my personal care containers! Sometimes I can even tuck an NingXia Red pack in the bag too!

And now for my tip: The oils don’t drop out of those sample bottles like they do the bigger bottles. So how do you get the oils to come out? This is golden! Take the cover off the sample bottle (leave the reducer in place) and hold the bottle between your thumb and middle finger. Just tap the bottom of the bottle with your index finger. Voila! A drop will SHOOT out of the reducer top into your other hand!

In my newsletter called Oils On The Go, you will find more ideas for using essential oils when you travel, including ideas for a travel first-aid kit.

Outdoor Essentials

I live in northern Minnesota, so my tan fades… that is if I get one at all with our short summers! I tend to burn easily and peal if I am out too long. Also, when I do go outside, often I am greeted by lots of little “annoyances” that make me want to take cover! BZZZZ!

So skin comfort is a big deal to me when I am outside.

 

 

Last week Young Living introduced three amazing products to enhance our outdoor experiences. These are Mineral Sunscreen Lotion, Lavaderm After Sun Spray, and Insect Repellent. I will receive these products today and and so excited to try them.

All are totally safe, free of any harmful chemicals, and tested and proven to be effective. In fact, the insect repellent was tested against the leading brand and found to be more effective and without DEET!  It is EPA approved. The Sun products are classified as OTC (over the counter) medications and once again, completely free of any harmful chemicals! The After Sun Spray can be used to treat burns as well as sunburn. The Sunscreen provides protection from multiple types of UV rays and waterproof for up to 80 minutes. It provides protection for 10 hours in the sun.

Once again, Young Living Essential Oils has done the research and given us a product that is safe, effective, and one I am sure you will use and love!

If you want to learn more about them, please contact me, since these are brand new products and I will be testing them out in the coming days!

In my newsletter called Oils On The Go, I share some other suggestions for making your sun and fun time better. And you will also find some important tips about sun sensitivity when using essential oils.
