Baby Balm *GREEN PARENT Nappy Cream WINNER* 100% organic£14.25

Simple herbal salve for soothing the most delicate skin

Estimate dispatch time: 1-3 days

Banish nappy rash with our gentle Baby Balm designed to promote healing and protect delicate skin. Three traditional skin-calming herbs work hard to soothe and heal soreness and rashes. Nourishing sunflower oil and beeswax create a breathable barrier to keep skin protected against nappy wetness.


Totally organic, gentle, pure and simple salve with three classic herbs known for their healing, soothing, calming properties.

It has many uses: for soreness, irritations, nappy rash, cradle cap, dryness, scratches, eczema, minor burns or minor sunburn, itchiness, rashes. The balm can also be used as a medium for a gentle massage.  Also suitable for delicate skin in adulthood.

“My baby has terrible eczema but we keep it under control with this.  Who’d have thought!  Thank you so much!” Sarah T. Melbourne:

Chamomile, both Roman and German species, are well-known historically and in contemporary medicine for their anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergenic and sedative properties.

Calendula – marigold – has also been used for centuries as a medicinal, culinary, and magical herb. It has impressive anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, with skin-soothing and healing powers. It can reduce itching, redness, pain, and swelling of insect bites and rashes. It is also soothing for sunburn, cuts, scrapes, dry and chapped hands.

Chickweed is, again, well-known as a skin helper. An edible species (delicious raw and cooked), it is full of useful nutrients and healing properties. It soothes irritation and inflammation, and then works to protect damaged tissue from more damage. It has a direct nourishing effect on cells, supplying them with vitamins A and C, and thus is an aid to healing.

These three health-giving herbs have been infused at Great Elm in easily absorbed, light organic sunflower seed (itself well-known for its nutritious, skin-calming qualities) for at least three weeks to gain maximum healing power.

The only other addition is local beeswax to help preserve freshness and make it easy to handle and to protect the skin with some moisture-resistance.

For babies from 8 weeks.

Uses: nappy rash, soreness, itchiness, cradle cap, eczema.

Directions: Smooth on to clean dry skin as often as required.
