Cradle cap, or seborrheic dermatitis, is neither serious nor contagious but a form of eczema that is very common in babies. It usually begins in the first weeks of life and slowly disappears over the next several weeks or months. The sebaceous glands of many infants are not fully developed and may over-secrete, causing a yellowish, oily crust on baby’s scalp. Most cases of cradle cap clear up by the time your baby is between 8 to 12 months old.
This gentle infusion of herbal oils is specifically formulated to promote healing and relieve reoccurring cradle cap/seborrheic dermatitis and eczema in infants.
An age-old medicinal herb known throughout ancient Egypt, Greece, India & Rome, Chamomile is best remembered from a tale of a young little bunny named Peter who eats himself sick and gets chased out of the garden by an angry Mr. MrGregor, after which his mother gives him a cup of Chamomile tea to settle his tummy and soothe his rattled nerves then sends him off to bed. Chamomile’s soothing and calming effects relieve digestive upsets, anxiety, irritability, insomnia and muscle spasms.
