Earth Mama Angel Baby Review and Giveaway!

37 Weeks Pregnant With Jackson

37 Weeks Pregnant With Jackson

The product I am reviewing today is “A Little Something for Mama-To-Be” by Earth Mama Angel Baby. This is a mini kit of trial sized products for pregnancy including Organic Morning Wellness Tea, Earth Mama Body Butter, Happy Mama Wash, Happy Mama Spray and Natural Stretch Oil.

First of all I would like to say that this company is amazing and I would like for you to read their mission statement:

Earth Mama believes in the natural process of birth, and the healing power of nature. Our mission is to provide safe, herbal alternatives for pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, and babies of all ages, and to help educate people about traditional plant medicine and safe personal care. We manufacture natural and organic products that work, combining generations of women’s wisdom and traditional plant medicine with the safety and assurances of contemporary evidence based research. If it doesn’t measure up to Mama’s standards, it doesn’t leave the building. That’sMama’s Promise®.

When I was pregnant with Jack, I used a variety of of products from Earth Mama Angel Baby and still use some of the baby care line for Jack now. I have tried almost all of the herbal teas from EMAB and they are all delicious. My favorite tea was the Third Trimester Tea. It is super yummy and made me feel relaxed and at ease in my last anxious few weeks. But lets talk about the products in the kit…

Organic Morning Wellness Tea:

This tea is caffeine free, contains ginger and mint so it soothes those rolling waves in the pit of your stomach during those early weeks of pregnancy. It is tasty all on its own but I like to add a tsp of honey to mine. I prefer it hot but when made into iced tea, it becomes a refreshing treat in the hot summer months.

Earth Mama Body Butter:

I hate to feel greasy after applying lotion or any kind of body product. I actually avoid body butters in general because I do not want to feel like a greased pig after a bath. BUT this body butter is like a thin layer of velvet all over your skin. It does not leave a sticky or unpleasant residue and has a light fragrance. The fragrance is a slightly sweet aroma with vanilla and orange. Love it!

Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash:

This is a foaming wash that is scented with grapefruit and ginger. The one word that came to my mind while using it was ZING! This is an exhilarating fragrance in my opinion, refreshing and yummy. It is a foam wash, lathers well and rinses clean. And since this product is in the citrus family, it wont smell funny when you follow with the Body Butter above.

Happy Mama Spray:

I have to say, this was my favorite product in this kit. I had not tried this one before receiving this sampler and I was surprised when it was my favorite. When I am having a stressful day, I reach for it right away. The bottle says, “Naturally Uplifting Aromatherapy Mist”, and I could not agree more… UPLIFTING is the best word to describe this product. Just like the Butter and the Wash, it has a citrus aroma. All three products smell different but complimentary, so they work well together.

Natural Stretch Oil:

I used this product religiously when I was pregnant with Jack. I cannot say that I have 0 stretch marks but I can say that I did not have any until 38 weeks and I gained 64lbs. I feel like this product definitely helped my skin stretch with my growing baby and it also helped with the itching I had as my skin stretched. This is an oil and again where most will make you feel slippery and greasy, this one absorbs really well. Especially when applied immediately after a hot bath or shower. There is a smell to this product but it is faint. In fact I cannot even tell you what it smells like because it is so mild. Of all of the products in this kit and listed above, this would be my highest recommended during pregnancy.

This kit would be a perfect gift for any expectant mother and if you would like to order one of these or any of the other great products, please visit the Earth Mama website by clicking here.

Azure Standard Is Here!

Azure Standard Is Here In Baton Rouge!

I am so excited to be writing this post today about Azure Standard and Covenant Ranch Trucking. If you have never heard of this company, let me take a moment to explain to you what Azure is/does. Azure Standard is a company providing quality natural foods to communities by making drops in specified areas straight to the customers. Basically, everyone in an area places an order for their groceries by a specified deadline, and then those people all gather on a specific drop day and unload the truck of groceries together. Roughly two months ago this opportunity was made available to our community (Baton Rouge) and I am fortunate enough to participate in the last two drops.

Covenant Ranch Trucking is the trucking company that delivers the food from Azure straight to the customer. The driver helps unload the products, takes cash for COD orders and provides a friendly face for the company. Check out this YouTube video about Covenant Ranch Trucking.

There are two products that I have ordered on both previous drops and I am totally in LOVE!

#1. Portlandia Ketchup

This is the most delicious ketchup that I have ever eaten! And I hate to say it but, I am kind of a ketchup snob. Its not too vinegary or too sweet, perfectly balanced and stored in a GLASS jar instead of plastic! Its perfect!

#2. SnoPac Organic Crinkle Cut French Fries

If you know me at all, you know that I love french fries! Its definitely not a healthy food but nonetheless, I cannot part with them. These organic french fries cook up crispy and golden without any harmful preservatives or artificial additives.

Portlandia Ketchup+ SnoPac Organic Crinkle Cut Fries= PERFECTION!

If you are in the Baton Rouge area and want to get started ordering, join the Baton Rouge Azure Standard drop Facebook page and read the getting started with Azure document. If you are not in the Baton Rouge area but want to find a drop near you call Azure at (541)223-5640 and talk to a customer service representative.
