The Soothing Herbs of Motherlove Nipple Cream
August 15, 2017
When you have sore, cracked nipples, you want safe and effective relief fast!
Many women have found that Motherlove Nipple Cream softens and soothes painful breastfeeding nipples. Our creamy salve goes on easily and also serves as an excellent diaper balm. Motherlove Nipple Cream is made with 100% USDA certified organic, non-GMO and pesticide-free ingredients, and, since all ingredients are safe for ingestion (it does not contain lanolin or vitamin E), it does not have to be washed off before nursing.
But what makes our Nipple Cream so soothing? We thought we’d take a moment to explain and pay tribute to the wonderful skin soothing herbs in our cream.
The benefits of marshmallow root go beyond the white fluffy treat. Marshmallow root is an emollient herb, meaning that it is cooling and soothing. Since ancient times, marshmallow root has been used to treat a variety of ailments, including burns, sprains, and inflammation. The root can also be used to soothe irritated skin, treat infections, and improve digestion.
Calendula may be a familiar herb, as it’s used as a soothing agent in many natural products. This herb has been used for centuries as an all purpose skin healing herb used to stop bleeding, wash wounds, heal cuts, rashes, chapped skin, and eczema. Calendula has also been found to have strong anti-inflammatory properties and can relieve muscle cramps, painful swellings, hemorrhoids, and insect bites.
Don’t let sore nipples stop your breastfeeding journey. We recommend applying Motherlove’s organic Nipple Cream to your nipples several times a day to comfort painful nipples.
