My toddlers Kliven and Korby have so many insect bites on their legs. Just because recently, they found joy in spilling their milk all over the bedroom and leaving cookie crumbs on the bed and floor. The ants somehow found their way to sweetness delight. I tried so hard in cleaning up after the kids, making sure that no crumb and milk spills remain but the ants are clever and kept coming back, checking for morsels. The result? Full blown insect attack on my babies’ skin. Kliven usually stays where the ants marched because he’s curious and somehow most of the time accidentally steps on them. I’ve been meaning to find the best ant remedy because they leave ugly black marks on the skin. My dad recommended this “unknown” ointment from a Chinese store. It works but I was kind of skeptical because the label is in Chinese and so are the ingredients. I wouldn’t know what’s in it. But while hubs and I were watching a late night show on ANC, they featured Indigo Baby and its amazing organic products. I checked out their Multiply site on the web and that’s when I read about soo many good things about Indigo Baby’s bestseller, the Jar of Hope First Aid Gel. Made out of blue chamomile essential oil, this gel is great for mommy and daddy burnouts, stress, insomnia, fussy babies, insect bites, motion sickness, inflammation, (relieves puffy eyes from sleepless nights) rashes, cuts and wounds. Also helpful with teething!! The reviews were promising and I really wanted to order asap! So I ordered online through email. The response was swift and the owner Denise is friendly and accommodating. A jar costs around 380 pesos but I had to add 110 for shipping since I live in the Visayas. The parcel was delivered on time and as promised! The first thing I did was rub equal amounts on both my itching toddlers to relieve their itches and stored the jar on the fridge afterwards as advised by Denise. At first glance, once you open the jar, it was really watery.
So what I did, I stored it on the fridge in an attempt to solidify it a bit. What I love about this product is that it smells good, like apples plus all the good herbs, refreshing actually and it remedies swollen insect bites in a jiffy. I have yet to try it on its other medicinal purposes though. When you rub it on, it feels like rubbing water on skin, not sticky or heavy at all. Plus it feels cool and tingly. I tried it for myself just to see what it really feels like. Korby tried to lick the lid and must have loved the taste. And to know that it also works on teething babies by rubbing them on baby’s gums, I know it’s all goodness.
|Noo..He's not devouring the whole jar. Just munching the lid, people.|
So far it works great. Now I know why it’s their bestseller. For a 30 ml jar, you might think it will be empty in a few days but I think this will last a long time because a little bit of rubbin’ works fine. I’ll probably get another jar once this one’s done. To order, you may visit their Multiply shop and order HERE .
You should try their products. They’re organic and 100% safe for babies and all the yummy mummies and daddies out there. J
