When I became a mom, I realized that the things that I used to get really excited about took a backseat. Buying a new type of makeup. Trying out new shampoos and conditioners. Getting a new purse. …. Okay, getting a new purse is still completely awesome but I digress. The point is that once I became a mom, I got excited about trying out a whole new type of product:
Baby stuff. I absolutely love trying out baby products for Nellie and I get even more excited when the products are from eco-friendly, all-natural companies like Motherlove. I have to admit, I’m not the crunchiest of mamas. When it comes to myself, I don’t pay much attention to living green but I’ve been more conscious of it with Nellie. When Julie asked me if I’d like to review Motherlove’s Green Salve and their Diaper Rash & Thrush salve, I jumped at the chance after checking out the company’s website.
It’s hard enough to make decisions on what’s best for your baby, so when you find a company that you know you can trust to not put nasty and harmful chemicals in their products it takes the worry out of what you’re using on your child away.
This all natural versatile salve quickly and effectively takes the itch out of insect bites, bee stings and poison ivy. It soothes and eases the discomforts of rashes, chapped and irritated skin. A must for every home! Motherlove’s green salve has a zero rating (zero toxins) on EWG’s skin deep database and is made with 100% certified organic ingredients

I really liked this stuff. It doesn’t have much of an odor which is a plus. I can’t stand stinky creams and ointments. Nellie got a scratch on the backside of her leg from, you know, being a toddler and being busy and as soon as I saw it I jumped on the Green Salve and slathered it on her little leg. I noticed that just one day after using the Green Salve, the redness of the scratch had gone away. The scratch itself was still there but the area around it was no longer red! After another day or two of using the Green Salve the scratch had healed what I think was much faster than if I hadn’t used the salve at all. I also used it after she’d crawled around outside a bit and had some small red marks and scratches on her knees. Again, within just one day the redness was gone and the scratches healed really quickly. I’m looking forward to keeping this salve on hand for the summertime when the inevitable bug bite comes knocking at our door.
Diaper Rash & Thrush
An all-natural herbal salve for persistent, inflamed diaper rash. Diaper safe and compatible with all diapers including cloth. Motherlove’s diaper rash & thrush has a zero rating (zero toxins) on EWG’s skin deep database and is made with 96% certified organic ingredients.

This stuff was also really fantastic! I’m a fan of the non-cream diaper rash products because they’re less messy and I can kind of just rub any excess product I have on me into my skin when I’m done! It’s comes off easily when I give Nellie a bath, too. I always feel like I have to scrub her to get Desitin off, but I don’t have that problem with this. It performs really well too; she’s had a rash a couple of times since we’ve had the Diaper Rash & Thrush salve in the house and it’s knocked the rash out very quickly. Within a day. One of the things I love about both the Green Salve and the Diaper Rash & Thrush is that they’re really portable. I can toss a jar in my purse or in the diaper bag and go; I don’t have to worry about a tube getting squished and ending up with a mess, and the fact that it’s in a jar makes it much easier to carry.
I give both products two thumbs up. I feel good using them on my daughter and knowing that there’s nothing in the ingredients that’s going to be discovered down the road to be toxic. The Green Salve sells for $8.95 and the Diaper Rash & Thrush salve sells for $9.95.
You don’t have to slather on either product, so your jars will last you a long time. It’s a really great price, a really great product and one you can feel good about using on your kiddo!
