As many of you know I am a mom. A mom of four boys no less! Being a mom is the most rewarding, challenging and down right hardest thing I have ever done. These little bundles of joy are our babies, our seedlings and we would do anything for them. When we bring them home for the first time we want to give them the best of everything; the purest, healthiest and cleanest of every product we expose them too. That is our goal. Then reality sets in and most of our preconceived notions go flying our the door.
Until know! The amazing Young Living brand that people know and have been using for years has expanded to include a “Seedlings” line meant for your sweet, sweet baby. You no longer have to worry about exposing your child to the chemicals found in most brand name baby wipes, diaper rash creams, lotions and more!!
Young Living’s Seedlings line offers expertly created, essential oil-infused baby products that have been safely diluted for babies’ sensitive skin. Free from harmful ingredients, the line’s gentle, plant-based formulas have been specially created to carefully comfort infants and give parents peace of mind.
So lets look real quick at what is really in a brand name “Simply Clean” baby wipes.

|Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract||Aloe Vera|

Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress, and potential effects on the reproductive system.|
|Polysorbate 20||It is an emulsifier that keeps ingredients from separating. It is produced by using carcinogenic ethylene oxide, which may contaminate the final product with carcinogenic1,4-doxane.|
Now after reading all that who wants to wipe their babies bum with them!!?? Not this girl! I am a big advocate of knowing what you are putting on your body and these ingredients do not sound like things I want to put on my body! Now let’s look at Young Living’s Seedlings Baby Wipes.
Young Living Seedlings™ Baby Wipes are ultra-soft and comfortable. The soothing formula leaves skin moisturized, soft, and smooth while providing gentle and thorough cleansing without drying your infant’s delicate skin. With key ingredients are Apple fruit extract, Soapberry fruit extract, Aloe, Calendula extract, and Lavender essential oil, now that sounds better to me!
These gentle baby wipes can be used on any part of your infant’s skin. Soft, thick, and versatile, these wipes can handle a diaper change or a lunchtime cleanup. Vegan friendly, this mild and gentle formula contains cleansing botanicals and 100 percent pure essential oils and is specially formulated to minimize the risk of common allergic reactions.
Not only are these wipes amazing for your babies bum, they have numerous other uses as well! You can use them to remove your face makeup at the end of the day, they are great for wiping up sticky hands after meals and they can be used to replace your toxic dryer sheets! Imagine that, no more nasty dryer sheets and your clothes are going to smell great!
