How to Look After Baby's Skin in Winter

The new Thea Baby Naturals range - 100% natural skincare for infants

My youngest son was born at 7am on the 26th December, about 5 days late. I went into labour on Christmas Day, fortunately very late in the day so my family were still able to enjoy the Christmas feast that my mother had prepared for us all! My baby came quickly and I was only in hospital for a couple of days.

I knew from the experience with my first child how to look after my new son's skin. For the first few weeks  I only used water to cleanse and bathe him, then after a few weeks I would add a single drop of Lavender Essential Oil to the tepid water and bathed him in that.

With both of my sons, once they were a few months old I began to introduce more skincare, using only natural skincare ingredients such as Olive and Coconut Oil. My mother used a lot of Coconut Oil when I was growing up so I was familiar with its beneficial skincare properties.

I would add a drop of Chamomile and of Lavender to their bathing water. These were the days when Natural and Organic Skincare Products such as the Thea Baby Naturals range were not readily available so if you wanted a natural alternative you had to make your own home-made concoctions!

Thea Baby Naturals Jojoba and Chamomile Shampoo, only £6.95

Lavender is also great for pregnancy - a few drops in warm bath water can relieve muscle pain and tension, plus it is a fabulous ingredient for children who suffer from skin infections as well as being a great natural healer.

The rule to remember is never to use undiluted essential oils directly on the skin. One or two drops in tepid water or in a carrier oil such as Olive or Coconut Oil is generally sufficient to give the desired effect.

Thea Skincare products contain special blends of essential oils suited to different skin types.

Thea Baby Naturals the newest addition to the Thea Skincare range, containing essential oils, vitamins and natural moisturisers to protect and hydrate your baby's delicate skin.

All Thea Baby Naturals products are suitable for even the most sensitive baby skin and are pH balanced to suit the pH levels of both newborn and growing babies, giving them healthy, glowing skin.

All babies are special but there is something particularly joyful about having a Christmas Baby!

Thea Baby Naturals on Show at the East Midlands Mother and Baby Show

Natural and organic Thea Skincare products laid out at the East Midlands Mother and Baby Show

On Sunday 16th Thea Skincare made its offline debut at the East Midlands Mother and Baby Show in Nottingham.

The day started very early at 6am with very little sleep the night before, but I was excited as it was going to the first official day Thea Baby Naturals was available to the public.

All products in the Thea Baby Naturals range packed full of natural, organic ingredients

Visitors were allowed to test out the products for themselves before buying - everyone loved them!

The doors opened at 9.30am with a rush of early visitors. I was delighted that there was so much interest in Thea Skincare products. I was surprised to learn how many mothers were experiencing skincare problems with their young babies.

I had no idea that skincare for babies was such a big concern. The main concerns that I heard from chatting to the mothers were eczema and having very dry skin to the point of babies scratching incessantly until their skin bled. Some of the mothers were seeking medical advice others just did not know what to do.

The understanding of Paraben and Sulphate Free skincare products is still quite low so many mothers were keen to learn more about the benefits of chemical-free, Natural and Organic Skincare products.

Mothers gathered around the stall to test out the skincare products 

I spoke to the mothers about the benefits of natural skincare for themselves and their infants

After letting them try out samples of my products and speaking with parents expressing their skincare concerns, it became clear that the most common skincare problems on the day were very dry skin and eczema.

Thea Skincare Super Nourish Hand and Beauty Butter crème (want a free sample? Enter my blog competition - the first 20 will receive a tester of this fabulous cream!) is a fabulously rich but not greasy 76% Organic Butter Crème which is fantastic for very dry skin, stretch marks, and eczema conditions.

The rich properties of Shea butter, cocoa butter, kokum butter, mango butter, avocado oil and carrot oil make this blend of creams the ultimate base for very dry and distressed skin. It has a high level of absorbency into the skin despite its high oil content.

I have always had very dry skin and can relate to some of the problems being mentioned at the Show but since using the Thea Super Nourish products that I created my skin has significantly improved and is perfectly protected for the winter months ahead!

Many of the guests bought these lovely gift sets - they're perfect for Christmas gifts!

The show was a massive success and I can't wait until the next time!

Skincare for Babies: The Benefits of Essential Oils

Just launched - the starter kit from the new Thea Skincare natural Mother and Baby range!

I love Essential Oils and the more I learn about them the more I fall in love with them! Essential Oils offer natural scents that no artificial fragrance can compete with. So what are these Essential Oils? They are simply plant-based, concentrated oils offering pure goodness, each with their own set of beneficial properties.
Thea Baby Naturals is a wonderful range of  Natural and Organic baby products made using the purest of Essential Oils specifically formulated for babies and young children. Not only are they Paraben and Sulphate Free, they are pH balanced, totally chemical free and have not been tested on animals. Thea Skincare Baby Naturals products really are the leaders of a new generation of ethical, safe and nutrient-rich baby products.

"Thea Skincare baby products only 

contain Essential Oils... that are totally safe 

and suitable for use on newborns, 

babies and toddlers." 
Thea Skincare baby products only contain Essential Oils that have calming, soothing and healing properties and are totally safe and suitable for use on newborns, babies and toddlers. It is important to recognise that some Essential Oils are not suitable for newborns because they can be too strong. Thea Baby Naturals contain a blend of natural essential oils which have been specifically designed and formulated for babies and young children.
Two of my favourites Essential Oils are Lavender and Chamomile - both are fantastic natural oils for anyone right through from newborn babies to older children. Organic Lavender essential oil is pure magic and just right for babies in small amounts. It's soothing, healing and gentle on the skin. It aids sleep not just for babies and children but for adults too, hence it is ideal for both Mother and Baby alike. Chamomile fights off infections and is relaxing and soothing too. It's often drunk by adults as a bed-time drink so using Chamomile can also help to encourage restless babies to sleep!
