Neige and Pippa are two sisters who have created the ultimate necessity to your mama routine, naturally! Obviously they have called this product ROUTINE. If you haven’t added this product to your daily routine you are probably not smelling nor deodorizing to your mom’ing max’ability. Their product lets you mom like a lumberjack, not smell like one.

Let’s start by facing the facts: The products are created with clay or beeswax or clay and beeswax. There is also baking soda free versions, which use magnesium, for sensitive skin. The newest product added to this line is Superstar which has activated charcoal, magnesium, and a small amount of baking soda in it. This is a great one for super stink, but gentle for sensitive skin.

The howling wolf informs consumers the product is formulated with both clay and bees wax. The intoxicating scents include: Like a Boss (strongest formula), Sweet Jane, Napoleon’s Dynamite, Bonita Applebom, and A Girl Named Sue.

This beautiful bird lets consumers know this line of deodorant is created only with clay making it a completely vegan formula. The intoxicating scents include: Sexy Sadie, Johnny’s Cash, and Lucy in the Sky.

This buzzing bee obviously represents formulas created with beeswax. It may not be vegan but the buzz is that it is local and Alberta’s best beeswax. The intoxicating sents include: Blackberry Betty and Maggie’s Citrus Farm and for you scent’sitive bugs…….The scent free Bonnie and Clyde.

As a woman who has been athletically involved her entire life chasing no ball could have prepared me for the smell, sweat and tears of pregnancy and then motherhood, oh and the smelliest time of my life BREASTFEEDING. Personally that was fifteen long months of dripping the smelliest of all mother sweats. Every time that beautiful little baby cried and I scurried to undress to nurture…… the water works was on…..and most of the time I wasn’t crying. I tried and tested and even made my own deodorant, nothing was cutting my mustard. I even veered back into the world of ANTIPERSPRENT (gasp) nothing could cut my new mommy stank! Then, I came accross Routine Deodorant Cream and I noticed it was made in Calgary! My two loves, handmade and local!

Could it be a match made in heaven for me? I must admit the almost $30 price tag made me a bit nervous. Not only did it cut the mustard, that almost $30 jar lasted me four sweaty breastfeeding super mom’ing months! Worth every stinkin’ penny! I was in love, an all natural product that is local and handcrafted! What more could you ask for in your routine?! If you haven’t already you need to add Routine Deodorant Cream to your super’moming routine. There isn’t a scent I don’t love, but my first love is Sexy Sadie and for all you pregnant or breastfeeding mom’s avoiding essential oils Blackberry Betty, Sweet Jane and Bonnie n Clyde (unscented) were formulated for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as they contain no essential oils.

I give this product a solid 9.5/10 as my very minor con would be the essential oil can very slightly stain your shirt if you do not allow the product to dry after application if it comes in contact with your clothing.

Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces

 

Teething is one of those things in life that we all go through. But as a parent, it can be so tough seeing your little one is so much discomfort from teething. We love the  Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces and highly recommend these in conjunction with the Punkin Butt Teething Oil! 308095_347998428647224_612742239_n

Amber teething necklaces are not meant for chewing on. The amber helps to neutralize the acidity in your body that is common with pain and discomfort (think drooling, red cheeks, loose stools). We know many parents that swear by these necklaces!

For those of you looking for something to add to your teething remedy arsenal, we now carry Punkin Butt Teething Oil. This teething oil is an all-natural remedy to soothe the painful inflamed gums. Apply to your baby’s gums and let the soothing oils work their magic!images

We also have a great selection of teethers for your little one to gnaw on, which helps them to alleviate the pain related with teething.  The pressure to the gums triggers the brain to release chemicals that trigger that area to help alleviate pain.   For the younger babies you will  love the Como Tomo teether.  COTeetherDetail

For the older babies and toddlers the Zoli Chubby Gummy sticks.  These reach back to the little one’s back teeth and are the perfect size for their little hands!
