My little boy smells like heaven....


I first encountered Thymes bath products when I lived in Minneapolis, there is a local garden chain there that sells Thymes products (if your in Minneapolis Bachman's has a large selection of Thymes products though I can't honestly tell you if they have the baby products). I was busy looking for new plants for my vegetable garden when I kept smelling this amazing fragrance... It turns out it was an open sample of Thymes lotion. That was many years ago, and when I found out that Thymes offered baby products I had to check them out.

Sweatleaf Baby is Thymes signature baby line, and the smell is amazing and unlike anything else I have experienced in baby products. A mix of rose, jasmine, sandlewood and amber, it reminds me a bit of my grandmother's rose oils and the amber candles I burn around christmas time. You really must smell it if you get a chance its delicate and not overwhelming but it certainly leaves a lasting impression. I was a bit concerned with the use of sandlewood if it would irritate Connor's Eczema, but I am happy to report the body wash and lotion leave him feeling soft and smelling good enough to eat. I have to admit now that Connor is more toddler than baby at the end of the day he is not always smelling minty fresh and its nice to curl up beside a wonderfully smelling baby even if he wont be one much longer.

The Sweetleaf Body Wash and Lotion are wonderful but if you can only afford to add one product to your baby care inventory at the moment go with the Sweetleaf Blanket Wash, especially if you have a boy thats into everything it leaves those sometimes surprisingly yucky baby items smelling fabulous, you will be tempted to use it on your own clothes.

If you have never heard of Thymes they are a fabulous company, I heard a lot about them when I lived in Minneapolis though until now never got a chance to try their products. Their products are packaged as beautifully as they smell!! If your looking for a great baby shower gift skip the wrapping paper and just group the Sweatleaf Baby products in a cute container. Thymes products are NOT tested on animals.

Truly the only downside at all to the Sweatleaf Baby collection is the price. For moms on a budget you may baulk a little at the $16 a bottle price tag, but you truely can use a tiny dab can do a great deal more than you would imagine. If you have a child with especially sensitive skin believe me its worth the extra money.

Sweatleaf Baby is available on the Thymes storefront, you may also use the store locater to find a store near you that sells Thymes products!

I have a whole bottle of Sweatleaf Baby Massage Oil (great for adults too!) and a sample of the baby lotion to give away to one lucky reader!

I am a huge fan of their olive scent (which is odd since I despise olives). Everytime I switch, I end up coming back.
