Calendula Skincare Products for Babies
By: Guest: Elise Miller ~
There’s nothing quite like the skin of a baby; it’s delicate, sensitive and oh so soft! Baby’s skin deserves gentle skincare products that will keep them feeling fresh and moisturized. There are thousands of products out there for babies’ skin but unfortunately, not too many have pure and natural ingredients that are healthy for a baby’s skin. These four products are formulated with natural ingredients that are safe for all ages and perfect for any skin type. Treat your little one to the best!
Organic Calendula Oil
There are endless uses to Bodyceuticals Organic Calendula Oil. When changing your sweet little one’s diaper, apply a few pumps just as you would a diaper balm. It’s soothing and moisturizing for their delicate skin. During bath-time, add a few pumps of this wonderful oil to keep their skin soft and healthy. After a bath, this is also a great oil to rub all over the body for a little baby massage! This one is even safe for their face. Add a pump or two to their hair to prevent and soothe cradle cap while keeping their hair and head moisturized. Made with organic unrefined extra-virgin olive oil, organic calendula flowers and Vitamin E, you can trust that this oil is safe and gentle for your baby’s skin.
Calendula Bioactive Salve
Pack the Bodyceuticals Calendula Bioactive Salve in your diaper caddy or in your diaper bag. This salve can be used just like the organic calendula oil and works wonders for soothing and moisturizing on any dry spots, like in between those sweet little thigh rolls, on their face and head or as a diaper balm. This thick salve is formulated with organic unrefined extra-virgin olive oil, organic calendula flowers, fresh local Pacific Northwest beeswax, and Vitamin E. These simple and pure ingredients are the perfect formula for your precious baby’s skin. This one also works great for moms as a breast balm for soothing. You can also mix this one with a bit of water to create a cleansing balm. Use a washcloth with the balm during bath time to wash your baby’s face, body and hair.
Aloe Skin Soothing Spray
Bodyceuticals Aloe Skin Soothing Spray is an ultra-soothing mist that is perfect for babies. This refreshing spray is made with organic aloe vera, neroli blossom and organic calendula flowers that will gently soothe your baby’s skin. Gently spritz all over baby’s body and spritz a little in your baby’s hair. The spray will hydrate the skin to provide relief for any dry spots. This is a great one to pack in your beach bag during the summer days to soothe their delicate skin as well.
Calendula Lip Balm
Babies little lips deserve love too! Use Bodyceuticals Organic Lip Balm on your baby’s lips to soothe and keep them moisturized. You won’t have to worry if they lick their lips or tend to put their fingers in their mouth because this formula is a simple and natural recipe of organic calendula oil, organic beeswax and Vitamin E. This lip balm is especially great for soothing a breastfeeding baby who tend to develop a feeding blister on the upper lip. You can also use this balm as a spot treatment for any dry spots when you’re on the go or at home.
How To Get The Perfect Shave

How to Get the Perfect Shave
There’s something so lovely about the feeling of freshly shaved legs in all of their silky and smooth glory. Shaving can also be a delicate matter; finding a routine that does not irritate the skin or leave it feeling dried out can be tricky. This is where the recipe for the perfect shave comes in. Using all-natural products with high quality ingredients, this routine will leave your precious skin feeling healthy and refreshed. This do it yourself (DIY) scrub paired with the magic of aloe vera and calendula oil will have your legs feeling silky soft with a natural glow.
Prep the Skin
Before showering, use a natural bristled brush to dry brush your skin. Dry brushing helps to exfoliate the skin, boost circulation, do away with dead skin cells, aid in lymphatic drainage and plump the skin. Brush from the ankle upward with slightly firm pressure, always brushing towards your heart. Dry brush the skin for 3-5 minutes.
DIY Scrub and Shave
First up, create a DIY scrub. Mix four parts organic sugar with one-part Bodyceuticals Coconut and Aloe Body Oil. Gently massage the scrub onto the desired skin area you would like to shave. Rinse the skin. Then, shave the area for a smooth finish. Sugar helps to exfoliate the skin by gently bringing healthy skin to the surface. Sugar also brightens dull and tired skin and can even help get rid of ingrown hairs. The Bodyceuticals Coconut and Aloe Body Oil is ultra-moisturizing and is filled with fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. The lightweight formula of this oil leaves your skin feeling silky soft for long-lasting moisture. Double or even triple the recipe and store in the shower in a jar or create a few jars to give as a lovely gift to friends and family for any special occasion.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
We all know the importance of applying moisture after a shower and this definitely includes those luscious legs! First, spritz Bodyceuticals Aloe Skin Soothing Spray all over your legs. You can also use this spray anywhere on the body after a shower. This spray combines the power of aloe vera, neroli blossom and calendula flowers to help soothe and hydrate the skin in a convenient spray bottle. For added soothing, you can even store this one in the fridge for a wonderful cooling effect. Next up, apply the one and only golden oil: Bodyceuticals Calendula Oil. This soothing oil works wonders for the skin by deeply penetrating the skin with its rich moisture. This oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, plant compounds and natural enzymes. This oil is the ultimate skin healer and your legs will definitely soak in all the benefits of this oil. For another layer of moisture, go ahead and use the Bodyceuticals Coconut and Aloe Body Oil that you used in the DIY scrub. This oil will give your skin that wonderful glow and a warm coconut scent.
Cheers to silky smooth skin!
