Have you tried the Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo? My absolute most favourite thing about this product is that it is TEAR-FREE!!
No chemicals that numb those baby blues- just gentle plant derived ingredients. Young Living uses an ingredient called eye bright, which is a herb that helps support brand new baby skin and is also used as a tear-free agent to help neutralise the pH for the eyes!
They thought of everything
You know what it’s like when you have a brand new squirmy baby and you are trying to give them a bath for the first time? Let’s face it, you only have 1 working hand when you have a baby and time is of the essence. Well Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo is a 2-in-1 product, which is SO convenient when you have a brand new squirmy baby you are trying to wash!
It comes with a hand pump to make it really easy to dispense. It is infused with Young Living’s premium Seedlings Calm™ blend of Lavender, Coriander, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, and Geranium for a sweet, mild aroma to calm, soothe, and meet the needs of newborns and infants!
I love how Young Living really thought about all the things a new mum would care about and they listened to us!!
No nasty ingredients
If you’re reading this, I’m sure you’re familiar with the “dirty dozen.” If not, it’s basically research that has been done specific to baby products. Many baby washes and shampoos will contain SLS or SLES’s because they are used as a cleansing agent in personal care products. It’s the yucky stuff that makes all those products foam up and makes us think we are getting clean!
Anyways, I wanted to point out to you that these yucky ingredients are a form of sulfur that is completely synthetic and man-made! Not to mention that most baby products contain PEG’s and fragrance. Two other ingredients you want to be avoiding using on your baby.
Before I joined Young Living I was blind to the fact that companies are not legally required to disclose the individual products used to produce fragrance. Therefore many fragrance ingredients that are harmful can be omitted from the label! That’s SCARY!
And tear-free?! You better believe that’s a numbing agent because whatever they’re using to make those fragrances is NOT okay for those little eyes!
The Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo is completely free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes and any other yucky ingredients!! Now, how does that make you feel?
Why I love the Seedlings Bay Wash and Shampoo
We think it’s super smart and such a time saver for new parents to have a 2-in-1 baby wash/shampoo!
Here are some other key things I LOVE about the Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo:
- Calendula gently and effectively cleanses hair and skin without drying that soft, delicate skin.
- Smooths hair, making tangles easy to comb out!
- 100% plant-based, naturally derived ingredients!
- Safe for everyday use!
- Dermatologist TESTED and APPROVED!!!!
- Vegan friendly!
I was really surprised at how many bad ingredients are in most of the baby wash you find on the shelves. Which of the key things above do you love the most about this body wash?
I would like to include that the average ph levels of bleach are 11-13. Skin care products ph should be 5.5 to leave the bodys ph undisturbed. The most common baby wash sold on the market is 10.25. THAT IS INSANE. Soap for children should not exceed 7.
Believe it or not, bath time is a critical time for a baby’s cognitive and emotional development. It’s all about the baby, encouraging touch and engaging many of the senses that babies’ brains need.
First up, the Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo is a 2-in-1 product (yay for making bath time easier!!) specifically formulated for an infant’s delicate skin. Even the most sensitive skin will love this wash.
It leaves the skin and hair clean, soft and smooth without over-drying. It smooths hair and makes tangles easy to comb out!!
Directions for using the Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo
Wet hair and skin with warm water. Apply a small amount of the Seedlings baby Wash and Shampoo to a moistened washcloth or hand and gently lather over entire body and scalp.
Calendula extract, Eyebright extract and Lavender essential oil
Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo Hack
Just like the Young Living shampoos, foaming hand soap, laundry liquid and dish soap you can actually dilute this product so it goes a lot further. I like to make 3 bottle out of one by pouring out 2/3 of the bottle into a glass jar and storing it away for later. I then top up the remaining 2/3 of the Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo bottle with distilled water. I like to use distilled water as there are no bugs in it which can cause my Seedlings Baby Wash and Shampoo to go off.
Is the Bergamot Furocoumarin Free?
Bergamot essential oil is photosensitive. However the Bergamot essential oil used in the Seedlings Calm Blend and all of the Seedlings Range is Furocoumarin free (also known as bergaptene-free). The Bergamot essential oil is re-distilled to remove the waxes, including bergaptene which cause it to be photosensitive. After distillation, the oil is safer to use on the skin.
Why Did Young Living Make the Seedlings Range?
Parents make hundreds of decisions every day about their family’s wellbeing, and we wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to choose the right products for their baby. We developed our Seedlings line to provide naturally derived and plant-based solutions for the littlest, most vulnerable members of your Young Living family. Infused with our Calm blend of essential oils, this product primarily features Lavender for its soothing and calming aroma.
