Lately I’ve been feeling a little bit antsy about chemicals. This week they figured out that the reason Upper West Siders periodically smell the odor of maple syrup wafting through the streets, is that some factory in New Jersey called Frutarom is processing fenugreek seeds to make food additives and the resulting odor is strong enough to make it to Manhattan. This has been going on for years. And all along I thought it was my heater. This flips me the heck out. If a food additive plant in New Jersey is shooting enough chemicals across the Hudson to make me crave French toast, what are all of the chemicals inside products made in New Jersey doing to me. And more to the point, what are they doing to my baby!
I was so happy when the wonderful folks at Ely Organics offered me the chance to try out the Baby Bottom Mist from their Miessence Baby Range line of organic baby products. These products are certified organic to the highest international food standards! You could drink the baby bottom mist if you were so inclined. But I have no idea why you’d do that, when you could spray it on your baby’s bottom instead. I’ve been using this fragrant mist regularly for a week. My baby is teething now (those upper canines…ouch!) and you know what that does to baby’s little bottom. After each diaper change I’ve been using a few spritzes of the Baby Bottom Mist followed by some corn starch powder, and I’ve been incredibly impressed with how it’s helped. Her bottom has been clear and largely irritation-free all week, even given that nasty teething. Miessence also offers a Baby Body Powder and a Baby Barrier Balm that can be used in conjunction with this spray. All three together would make an incredibly lovely baby gift or baby shower gift.
So what’s so special about this Mist? As they say on the Ely Organics site, these products are made with “ONLY certified organic herbs, No Phthalates, No Petroleum by-products, No Parabens, No Artificial Preservatives, No Fragrance or Dyes, No Synthetic surfactants, NEVER any animal testing.”
Ya Hoo! Take that New Jersey!
p.s. I have to say, I have also tried the Miessence Rejuvenating Skin Conditioner and Rejuvenating Moisturizer on myself…I have crazy sensitive skin and I absolutely love it. I’m hooked. I just ordered both yesterday.
