Herbs are sun-dried.
Herbal mix/blend looks like this:
It’s composed of 8 medicinal plants, all picked up fresh in our village area, ecologically safe region, some of the herbs were picked up in the monasteries around our village and in our neighbors’ gardens:
- Croton oblongifolius Roxb
- Cymbopogon nardus Rendle
- Cymbopogon citratus Stapf.
- Blumea balsamifera
- Amomum xanthioides Wall.
- Zingiber cassumunar
- Citrus hystrix DC.
Herbal mix is packaged in cotton bags sized 15×20 cm, we press the herbs to ensure сconsistent amount, however, I guess some shrinking might happen:
Pricing: 400 rub per bag.
These herbs do not contain any toxicity and limitations using them for small children.
What kind of limitations I see due to psychological barrier and customs: 1. If the child is not used to herbal remedies from early age, jumping into a bath with leaves and yellow/brownish water might be distressful/strange/scary. You might want to start using herbs gradually. Start from a hand-full amount of herbal infusion, pour it into the bathtub through a sieve to avoid any herb particles in the water. If you have that kind of relationship with your kid that allows for some explanatory talk and your kid trusts you on it, you can sit together, examine the herbs, touch and smell, discuss their effects, explain that using herbs prevents any pain, inflammation, illness, and so on. 2. To help your kid getting use to herbal remedies in his/her bath you can use game approach. Our son uses the leaves and roots together with his bath toys – cars, balls, ducks. For example, leaves can be airplanes, and so on.
We believe that due to extensive usage of industrially produced chemical substances for baby bath, laundry, household, skin pores and the whole respiratory system of the body might be “blocked” with toxins; in this case the beneficial properties of herbs won’t release their healing power.
Considering this, I’d like to share quite a detailed article on baby skin care, which substances are harmful and must be avoided. The article is in English language.

On the chemicals in personal skin care products, and specially baby care, it’s good to consult American web-sites, because people there are already “full” with “niveas” and “johnsons”, and took their conclusions.
Here are some links to look for information on cosmetics and ingredients:

If you started suspecting your everyday skin care and household products for being incompatible with life, you have a dilemma right in front of you. You can change your family’s life by eliminating most of those dangerous chemicals, that is not easy and requires mental and practical changes, also time is needed – to go through the problem and become deeply conscious that those familiar products on tv screen and supermarket shelves are, in fact, poisonous. Otherwise, using herbs might be useless/ineffective. Or, you can leave it all as it is. There is a third, softer, way, start decreasing the presence of chemical products, create “day-without-chemicals” events at home. In my personal experience (Natalia) this is the way I’m following. After some time your systems will be detoxicated, upon sniffing something in a supermarket or anywhere you’ll start sneezing, having a tickling feeling in your throat and experiencing upper respiratory mucosal congestion. This is the sign – you are ready for further personal reorganization and change over towards using herbs and eco-friendly remedies in your everyday life. In case you need ideas or advice about natural remedies, I can help, please let me know.
