Little Herbs

Muddy says: Award-winning 100% organic botanical skin care for mums and babies, using ingredients grown in English country gardens

Liv and Bruna couldn’t find good enough skin care for themselves and their families, so they started making botanical skincare at Great Elm Physick Garden. Little Herbs is their 100% organic range for mothers and babies, using traditional remedies backed up by modern science.

So no long lists of chemicals, artificial perfumes, colours or preservatives. Just simple recipes, using the best quality ingredients that are gentle on delicate skin. The main source is the English country garden, plants like lavender, calendula (marigold), chamomile, rosehip seed, apricot kernel oil, honey and beeswax – and are all good enough to eat (literally).  Every single ingredient is listed on the label and certified 100 per cent organic.  A Consultant Medical Herbalist checks every recipe, working to standards set by the National Council for Medical Herbalists. Nothing is tested on animals, only volunteers.

So what’s on offer? Healing balm for nappy rash and more, vitamin-rich oil for bath and massage, an innovative oat and lavender soak for bath time. Neat little gift sets: new baby essentials, mini hamper for teething babies and for when you’re on the move.

Not just for little ‘uns, either.  They make all sorts of delicious soaks, balms and rubs for pregnancy – their Bump Butter was a Best Buy in the Green Parent Awards 2018 (just one of their awards) – new mums, or anyone else in fact. Run me a bath and pour in some Bathe the Mother reviving soak with Epsom salts, violet leaves, lavender, chamomile and geranium will you?

All available online.
