Calendula. It’s a word that didn’t enter my life before I became a mother. Oh, I’d probably heard it before but I wasn’t paying attention. Becoming responsible for a whole new person, so fragile, right at the beginning of her journey, made me become a lot more conscious of the ingredients found in the lotions and potions that have become part of our everyday lives. Now, I’m enamoured of anything that leaves out the parabens, employs active, natural ingredients while still smelling and making me feel beautiful.
Katharine Botanicals seems to tick all of those boxes. The Stretch Mark Lotion, Baby’s Bottom Cream and Nipple Cream all share fresh scents and are luxuriant to the touch. Pregnancy and the postpartum period are times when all our senses and sensitivities are heightened. They’re also times of transition. These products offer another amazing way to pause during these periods and take time to nurture yourself and your baby. I really believe it’s important to do that.
The Stretch Mark Lotion contains organic calendula as do the Baby’s Bottom Cream and Nipple Cream. I’ve been enjoying massaging it into my bump and thighs and just breathing it in. Just lovely.
Anyway, I’m giving away all three on this here blog. To enter, leave a comment telling me how you make time to pause and reflect, during the day or the week and fill in the Rafflecopter below. Entries close on October 23rd and a winner will be chosen at random and announced here on the blog the next day. Enjoy!
Over 18, UK residents only.
