Natural Baby Care
by Kristen on Mar 18, 2008

This book is a perfect fit for a mother-to-be or young mother who
enjoys beauty and detail in life. Natural Baby Care provides much
more information than the cover describes. It is an introduction to
all things natural! For example, the reader will be introduced to:
Herbs, essential oils, homeopathy, pregnancy, childbirth, labor,
breastfeeding, baby care, organic food, avoiding harsh chemicals in
our environment, skin care, massage, homemade shower gifts, and so
much more!

Advanced herbalists will enjoy this book for the recipes
provided, but will find much of the writing introductory and basic.
The simplified information is a plus for someone just breeching the wall of Natural Living.

Natural Baby Care is on my gift list for new mothers with an emerging interest in natural health!

I live on a Greek island and there is such an abundance of herbs growing wild! However,I don't really know what they all do and how to best use them. Thanks for this fantastic site which I discovered through NGJ! I would like to give all mamas a healthy alternative to baby lotion.

Heat 2 cups of good quality olive oil with a handful of chamomile flowers (dried) and pour in a jar and allow to cool. Store in glass for future use. I use it on the children after their bath by massaging and they warm up in seconds! It also seems to help in healing cuts and abrasions.

Did you know that chamomile actually means apple of the ground in Greek (because of its apple-like smell)?

Thanks once again! ~Arlene
