What is it?

Who is reviewing it?
Ellie and her 7 month-old baby boy.
In use

I was very keen to try these, as they are the first Fairtrade baby products in the UK. They are nicely packaged and smell wonderful – lavender and chamomile. The nappy balm is a solid oil (think lip balm in a tub) rather than a cream, so I’m never sure if I’ve put on too much or too little, but I used it on a very sore-looking patch of nappy rash and it was healed overnight, so I’m convinced it’s good stuff. The massage oil is lovely and light and rubs in easily but without needing too much for one use.
Any negatives?

I suppose it’s a bit of a churlish thing to say, but although they smell lovely, they do smell like every other organic baby product out there – can someone please try something new? That said, I notice the nappy balm does also come in an unscented option.
Price and availability
Available from Organic Monkey.  The Bumfluff is £10.50 and the Hello Mellow is £12.
Overall

Lovely products and it’s great to finally be able to apply Fairtrade principles.
