Because babies bodies are so sensitive, it is even more critical that they are exposed to healing and nourishing substances. Petroleum based products for babies and young children reign supreme in hospitals and pharmacies. This salve is a chemical and by-product free alternative. It can be used as a diaper balm, a moisturizer or for minor scrapes and bruises. Calendula, chamomile and St John’s Wort are gentle yet effective plant allies, and the trio have calming effects on the skin and the psyche. This salve is designed to be pure and simple, and to be flexible for many different uses. There is no added fragrance.
Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking natural and effective alternatives to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovatively simple products that are good for the body and the earth.
