Nips and Lips
Organic olive oil, calendula, marshmallow root, Shea butter and beeswax.
I don’t know about you but I didn’t want to put lanolin, a wax secreted from a sheep’s wool, that is probably treated with a ton of chemicals, on my nipples. Sure, it’s works great, if that’s what you’re into. I made this because breast milk was how I nourished my children, from day 1. This product is made from 100% organic ingredients. No preservatives. It does not need to be wiped off prior to nursing. It’s very soothing. You can also use it as a diaper cream and it’s works great for the chapped lips.
If you’re just about to start breast feeding, your breasts are engorged or you’re weaning the babe, I have a fun tip for you. You’ll need a head of cabbage. When I told my man I needed cabbage, he somehow came home with shredded cabbage, from a restaurant. Choose a green one (organic is best), just to be safe, a red one may stain your clothes. Put it in the refrigerator. Once cold, tear off outside leaves and return the rest to the fridge to save for later. Give the leaves a good rinse, pat dry and crumble them up in your hand. You may need to remove the inside steam so it won’t be too stiff. Place the chilled cabbage leaves over your breast, you can put it right in your bra, that helps them stay in place. This will help relieve the swelling and inflammation in the breast. Leave them on until the cabbage gets warm and wilted. Do this several times a day for two days or until you feel relief. Continued use can result in a decreased milk supply.
Momma deserves happy nipples.
This product comes in a 2 ounce tin and is $12. You can come to my studio and get it in NE Minneapolis, I can mail it to you ($3 for shipping and handling) or you can find me on Etsy. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to purchase.
Cheers, Gaia Grown.
