Testimonials

‘My little daughter really dislikes bath time and I had been battling to get her settled after every disastrous bath. There was just no way she was going to sleep after that- she would fuss for an hour or two after her bath no matter what! A friend of mine suggested I massage her and made specific mention of your website and your baby massage oils. I thought it sounded like a lovely idea and it really has turned out to be the answer I was looking for. My daughter really relaxes when I or her dad Massages her and it’s actually quite fun for us as well. We started with the Infant Massage Oil and now that she’s a bit older we use Blissful Baby Massage Oil. This has a lovely smell and makes me feel just as calm and relaxed as her!’ Sam K.

Natural Herbal Cream to Treat and Prevent Diaper Rash

Filed under: Aromatherapy For Children — Administrator @ 11:18 am

Stumble it!

How can NaturalEco Diaper Distress Cream help your child?

Diaper Rash is an extremely common problem for babies and toddlers who are still in diapers. This broad term refers to any rash that is found in the diaper area and actually covers skin irritations that are due to a wide variety of causes, including rashes caused by Allergies, fungal or bacterial infection.

Most diaper rashes are simply a consequence of the moist and enclosed environment inside a diaper as well as the friction between the skin and diaper material. This may cause the tender skin in the diaper area to become vulnerable to other skin infections.

Babies with Diaper Rash often become extremely temperamental and “grouchy” due to the discomfort, and for moms of these little ones, Diaper Rash can be a very frustrating problem. All mothers hate to see their babies uncomfortable and in pain.

What is Diaper Distress Cream?

Diaper Distress Cream is a wonderfully soothing and healing cream for both prevention and treatment of Diaper Rash.

Steroid creams sometimes recommended for Diaper Rash are not always the safest for your baby as the enclosed environment of a diaper can cause absorption of the steroid cream into the bloodstream and lead to side-effects.

NaturalEco Diaper Distress Cream is formulated with natural herbal and aromatherapeutic ingredients to safely and effectively prevent, soothe and clear your baby’s Diaper Rash, without the risk of unwanted side effects.

Use NaturalEco’s Diaper Distress Cream to:

  • Form a protective barrier on your baby’s skin, preventing Diaper Rash
  • Soothe irritated and itchy skin in the diaper area
  • Relieve red and raw Diaper Rash
  • Encourage natural healing of the skin
  • Treat and prevent bacterial or fungal infection

Diaper Distress Cream contains the following proven, natural ingredients:

Zinc Cream relieves raw, irritated skin and soothes redness and itchiness. Zinc also forms a protective layer when applied to the skin and promotes natural healing.

Comfrey soothes and heals inflamed tissues. It is an anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce swelling and pain whilst also stimulating the growth of new cells to speed up the process of healing.

Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola) is used topically to treat skin irritation and wounds. This herb is well-known for its gentle yet effective ability to stimulate healing and prevent formation of Scars.

Lavender Essential Oil is valued for its Antiseptic, healing and calming properties and is wonderful for reducing discomfort and improving natural healing of Diaper Rash.

Tea Tree Oil is used widely for various skin conditions due to its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and healing properties. Good for soothing all skin irritations.

Marigold (Calendula officinalis) is an herbal ingredient used to treat skin problems and promote healing of wounds. It is an excellent anti-inflammatory and prevents infection with its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. Marigold has been clinically shown to assist the regeneration of damaged skin tissue.

Diaper Distress Cream comes in an aromacare carrier cream containing purified water, fractionated palm Kernel oil, hydrogenated palm oil, Glycerin (vegetable origin), glyceryl monostearate, stearic acid (vegetable origin), dimethicone fluid, polysorbate, carbomer, triethanolamine, methylparaben, ethylparaben and propylparaben

No artificial colors or fragrances are added.

How do I use Diaper Distress Cream?

Apply to clean skin after each diaper change. For external use only.

Testimonials

‘I used and loved your Pregnancy products so I was thrilled to find out that you have remedies for babies as well. Your Diaper Distress Cream really saved my baby from the continued discomfort of a bad case of Diaper Rash. He was crying almost constantly- I guess because it was painful or itchy or just plain uncomfortable! I felt so bad for him! After just one application of your cream he settled down and after 2 days the rash was pretty much a memory. Keep making your great natural products – it is wonderful to have natural and effective alternatives to the OTC and prescription meds.’ Monica G.

‘A big thank you from both me and my 2 month old daughter for your Diaper Distress Cream: what a life-saver! Her stubborn Diaper Rash was making us both miserable and I had tried a number of other products recommended by my doctor and pharmacist. Some of them cleared it up for a short while only for the rash to return with a vengeance. Diaper Distress Cream got rid of the rash and kept it away- at last! Thanks again!’ Cherie and Baby Lauren

What else can help?

  • Change your baby’s diaper often.
  • Let your baby’s Skin Dr. completely before putting a clean diaper on and leave him/her diaper-free whenever possible.
  • Natural sunlight and fresh air are very beneficial to the diaper area (don’t overdo the sun though).
  • When putting a diaper on make sure that it is loose enough for air to Circulate.
  • Avoid harsh Soaps, baby wipes, or any fragranced products.
  • If using cloth diapers, ensure that they are washed thoroughly in very hot water and that all detergent is thoroughly rinsed out of them.
  • Don’t use steroid creams on Diaper Rash – the enclosed environment of a diaper can cause absorption of the steroid cream into the bloodstream and lead to side-effects.
  • Remember that the Ask Us team is always there to help with free email support on health matters, including Breastfeeding and the health of your baby!

Diaper Distress Cream is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched, natural, safe and effective.

Diaper Distress Cream is backed by our 60-day money-back guarantee so you can experience relief risk-free.

Croupy Coughs and Laryngitis


Stumble it!

Just about every parent has been awakened in the night with a child ‘barking’ and coughing. The child is scared as they try to breathe and at the same time the parent becomes very anxious.

Croup is not uncommon in young children especially when they have been exposed to upper respiratory infections.

Many parents don’t seem to panic after they have experienced this a time or two. But what can you do to help yourself and your child?

First thing is to get them in the bathroom and shut the door. Either turn on the shower and let the hot steam water fill the room, or fill the bathtub with hot water so steam will form. You want to create a steam filled room.

Then you will want to add some Essential Oils to be released into the air. If you have a bathtub filled with the hot water, simply drop some oils into the water. Quickly they will diffuse into the air.

If you have only a shower, you will need to fill the sink with hot water and place the oils into the basin. The shower will provide the steam in the room and the basin will allow the oils to permeate the air.

Try to sit quietly, comforting your child and relax. The more anxious you are, the more tense your child will be.

Most of the time you will want to use an oil that will be calming to the child and your self and also to help the respiratory system to make the breathing easier. Depending on the age of the child you can try several different oils. Babies under 1 year – you should just use a little Lavender in the room.

Between the ages of 1 and 3 you can add some Eucalyptus Radiata and Frankincense.

Older children – you may want to add Geranium or Sandalwood to the blend. All these oils have relaxing, soothing and of course antiviral and Antibacterial properties.

Eucalyptus Radiata is suggested for use with children as it is milder and more tolerated by children.

Try this blend in your ” Steam Room “

This blend should be safe for all ages of children.

If Laryngitis or hoarseness persists during the daytime. You can make a blend of Lavender 3 drops, Roman Chamomile – 2 drops and Thyme – 1 drop. Blend together and place in a Nasal Inhaler, breath in this blend several times throughout the day.

Other oils that might help include Clary Sage and Myrrh

To make your own Vapor Rub Mix 3 drops of Eucalyptus , 2 drops of Thyme into two teaspoons of a Carrier Oil. Massage this into the chest and neck regions. (The Thyme is especially warming – if this is too warm on the skin, use only 1 drop of Thyme).

As with any respiratory problem, please consult your physician and if your child is on prescription medication, make sure your physician is aware you are using Essential Oils too.

Aromatherapy and Children

Filed under: Aromatherapy For Children — Administrator @ 2:34 pm

As in case of adults, aromatherapy works wonderfully in case of children too; a cool aromatic bath in a tub is always eagerly awaited by your children.

Many Essential Oils can be used to treat many ailments and conditions of your growing children. How ever, care must be taken in treating children with Essential Oils, although there are many numbers of safe ones. If used in original Concentration, oils may work adversely and cause skin burn and irritation.

Most common dosage for any aromatic oil would be one-third to one-half the adult dose, or a 1-percent dilution (five or six drops of Essential Oil per ounce of Carrier Oil), and don’t forget that citruses may irritate the skin.

Chamomile, Melissa and Fennel are usually used as massage oil, or taken as herb tea. These oils are known to soothe a variety of tummy-aches-and the problems that can lead to stomachaches, such as frayed nerves, Anxiety and over excitability. More common problems like Colic, gas pains, and nausea and food Allergies are also treated by oils.

A Chamomile, Fennel and Melissa herb tea with Licorice helps stop crying and fussing in infants with Colic. Essential Oils relieve muscle spasms caused when babies swallow air as they eat. Herbal gripe water is still being used all over the world to get rid of Colic pains. A carminative water mix contains Fennel, Chamomile, caraway, Coriander and bitter Orange peel, all known to kill bacteria and relieve Flatulence.

Most digestive problems are reduced by a simple tummy massage using one of the oils. Tummy-Rub Oil can be formulated as follows:

Mix together and massage the tummy gently.

A suggested treatment for children before bedtime is a warm Lavender and Chamomile Essential Oil bath. Most children just love taking aromatherapy baths, particularly if they have their own personal blends. Popular fragrances include Orange, Grapefruit and Tangerine – all antidepressants and relaxants.

Nature’s gentle but powerful relaxant Teas such as Melissa, Lavender and Chamomile have the property to calm a nervous, over-stimulated, over-excited child, make Headaches go away and gently induce sleep.

Placing a cool compress of Lavender on the forehead will give much needed relief from a headache, Sleeplessness or over-exertion. Frankincense used as a vaporizer or as massage oil is safe and effective for respiratory congestion or infection.

Other safe Essential Oils for children include Mandarin, Marjoram, Neroli, Jasmine and Pettigrain. Tea of Yarrow, Catnip, Peppermint and Elder Flower are known to reduce the symptoms of measles, Chicken Pox or mumps; Ginger with a touch of Lemon juice is also effective.

The soreness of mumps is lessened by syrups and gargles made from Teas of Thyme, Rosemary or Sage. Antiviral oils made from Melissa and Bergamot has proven effective against the mumps and chicken-pox viruses. For Teething Pain in toddlers and young children, give Chamomile tea and rub the gums with a little diluted Clove oil on your finger.

The following formula may be used for swollen tonsils, mumps and other lymphatic swelling in the neck area:

Neck Wrap

Mix the water with the Essential Oil. While the water is still warm, soak a soft cloth, preferably flannel, in the water and wring it out. Wrap the cloth around the neck. Cover with a towel to hold in the heat. Remove before it gets cold. Repeat as many times as you wish.

Essential Oils are universal in nature, as they are known to work in every condition, in all times of the year. Essential Oils prove very handy in times of distress and need; a few drops of Essential Oil are all needed to reduce the symptoms in children.
