5 Natural Remedies for Young Families

At every stage of life, what you choose matters

All-natural doesn’t mean compromise. It means you care.

Your house is becoming a home and you’re watching your kids do things you’ve already done. If you’re like us, you grew up reading labels and you know it matters what you put on your bodies and theirs. There are a lot of choices out there. Here are five essentials you’ll encounter on your journey, where we think all-natural is the easy and obvious choice.

1. A new bundle of joy is coming!
Choose natural skin care for Mama + Baby.

You should be expecting stretch marks, cradle cap, and diaper rash. So much of what we put on our skin, soaks right in. Treat mom and baby right by choosing products that are gentle, nourishing, and plant-based. There are all-natural alternatives out there to tackle everything from dry, cracked nipples and thrush, to itchy skin and those little red bumps.

Look for products with Chamomile and Calendula. They're gentle, soothing, and nourishing for young or sensitive skin.

2. They’re learning to fly.
You’re going to need First Aid you can count on.

Before you know it that newborn is walking, then running, then riding a bike, and falling out of trees. You’re going to need a reliable first aid product around that can handle all the little cuts, scrapes, bumps, and bruises that come with learning so much so fast. Humans have been utilizing herbs as remedies for these maladies for centuries.

A good first aid salve or cream should include herbs like Plantain to soothe and calm and St Johns Wort to help ease pain.

3. They grow up so fast.
Are you using my face wash? What’s that smell?

It seems like it was only yesterday they were pudgy and you were their entire world. Now they’re taller, they smell funny, and their friends' opinions matter more than yours. While you’re sharing tips on shaving and makeup, introduce them to all-natural, oil-based face wash. Not only will it cleanse and soothe your skin, but it can balance the oil on their skin to help reduce acne. And while you’re at it, get them some all-natural deodorant too. They’re going to need it.

A good face wash should include nutrient-rich oils your skin will love like Sunflower and Jojoba. Look for deodorants with herbs like hops and lemongrass. They're great at fighting odor.

4. Into each life some rain must fall.
Be ready with all-natural Pain Relief.

You’re starting to feel things for the first time after the amazing immortality of your twenties and the kids are in sports now. Suddenly the whole house is experiencing aches and pains that weren’t there when everyone was younger. Don’t just pop a pill. Teach them how they can use plants to treat that pain topically. You need herbal pain relief, like a salve or massage oil.

Good pain relieving topicals usually include Arnica or Peppermint or both. They're great ingredients that can help fight pain and soothe respectively.

5. Life moves pretty fast - don’t you forget about you.
Bath salts and botanical oils to the rescue.

You can’t pour from an empty cup, and if you’re not at your best they can tell. It took us a long time to realize that a foot rub or a long soak in a tub were as important as sleep or a healthy diet. Taking care of you is crucial and you can do it naturally.

Don't skimp on your self care. Little splurges, like botanical oils and pure sea salts, are worth it.


There are too many chemicals in everything. The petroleum products and preservatives that companies have been using for generations are building up in our blood streams with untold effects. It’s time to Choose All-natural. It's time to Choose You.

We’re women-owned by two sisters and their mom. Jodi, the oldest, was pre-med. Jen, the younger sister, was an herbalist and midwife. Mom was the matriarch of a military family who taught us work ethic and how to take on anything with passion, and joy. Together, with our family we make products we can be proud of.

Can I just say how much I love your products. Your lip balm is just perfect with just the right amount of mint, and holds together even in 100 degree heat. (my children tell me I am addicted to it.) The Dry Skin Care is amazing and I have used it on everything from sunburn to hair, as well as using it as a daily moisturizer. The face wash is heavenly, and we use Green Goo on everything from bites to diaper rash. All our first aid kits include Green Goo. Love these tremendous products! - Melissa
