Whether you have a baby, are expecting one soon, or know someone who is, Mashala Baby Organics has the perfect gift for you. I’ve been checking out their Organic Tradition Complete Infant Massage Set. Massage is an ancient form of baby relaxation and health that moms all over the world have been relying on for as long as they’ve had babies! Baby massage is used to soothe the newborn, relieve colic, heal dry skin on babies of any age, help babies sleep, or clear a stuffy nose or chest. The benefits are endless, but the biggest benefit is the bond that is built between mother and child as they spend a few quiet moments together.
Mashala Baby Organics is an impressive Canadian company that has quite a story behind it. It’s the merging of two sides of a family, both putting an importance on natural care for generations. The recipes, passed down from great grandmother to grandmother to mother to daughter, are the backbone of Mashala Baby Organics. Equally impressive are their all-natural organic products, which feature ingredients such as olive oil, holy basil (a favorite from my Old World roots as well), and chamomile.
The Organic Tradition Complete Infant Massage Set is certainly complete! It includes a 100% organic cotton infant massage pad, a muslin bag filled with four different massage oils, a special sign for baby’s bedroom door to let people know “Shhh! Baby Massage in Progress”, and a beautiful wooden bucket to store the massage oils in. I love the oils – they’re not strongly scented, which is very important for a small baby. Even the Gentle Vapor oil is mild; just enough for baby. This set is a $55 value, and I guarantee any mother who receives this one will be very pleased with it. It comes with full instructions on how to do an infant massage too, so mom isn’t left wondering how it all works.
