Keeping in tune with the trend of my blog to feature natural handmade products, I decided to do an exclusive feature for kids body care products. The foremost thought for a brand that has crafted some gentler products with loads of care and love, I could name Aroma Essentials without second thoughts. The talented artisan Madhurima gladly agreed on the proposal and sent me a boxful of handmade stuff to clean and care for my boy from head to toe. The products included Baby Oil, Baby Soap, Baby Ubtan and Hair Cleanser. After using the products for weeks now, here is my honest opinion about all of these.
The Baby Oil is a blend of Almond Oil and Rose Oil/ Vetiver. The light golden colored oil has unique exotic aroma. And it looks so beautiful with dry rose petals swimming in the pool of oil ;)
The oil is light on skin and doesn't feel sticky. As I give a massage to my child, I feel its aroma gives a soothing, calming effect. Its a multi-purpose oil and can also be used for head massage.
In sync with the Almond based baby oil, there came a lovely pink color soap made of trusted ingredients Almond Powder, Almond Milk and Masoor Daal. I swear when I find some kitchen ingredients used in skin care products, my faith n expectations in the product go really up ;)
This oval-shaped soap came wrapped in a thin cling sheet with the label mentioning only the product name.
Now here if some parents want to avoid using a soap for their kids and need a traditional alternate, we have this Baby Ubtan for them. Its a dry composition of Honey, Oats, Kesar, Almonds, Masoor, Kachur and Triphala. I mix a spoonful of ubtan in cold milk to make a paste and rub it on my kid's body. It would requires some time to prepare a smooth paste (don't mind if you need to use your fingers too) ;) I'm using it occasionally to clean my child's legs as there are some old allergy marks on his legs and I feel it may lighten those if used religiously.
The only thing I wish is to have the ingredients list and usage instructions printed on the product labels just like the hair cleanser has got.
