Cutting of the cord is a very sacred moment and after-care for a newborn’s umbilical cord can be quite vexing to a new mama. Our cord care powder is carefully blended with herbs that help expedite the umbilical cord’s natural healing process, helping it dry out and fall off faster, making the transition comfortable for both baby & mama.
Once baby’s umbilical cord falls off you will likely be left with extras, which can be used as an excellent first aid powder.

A staple in folk medicine as an antibiotic & antiseptic, Goldenseal was cherished during the 19th century as a cure-all until it fell out of fashion prior to the Civil War. Goldenseal when used externally as a wash soothes skin conditions such as eczema, ringworm and athletes foot, as well as wounds and badly healing sores.

One of the three gifts of the Magi to the Christ child, Myrrh has been treasured for thousands of years. A holy incense that was ritually burned in Jerusalem’s sacred temples and in ancient Egypt as an ingredient in embalming formulas, Myrrh continues to be a proven and popular remedy even today. Myrrh is commonly applied as a disinfectant to wounds and when combined with Goldenseal can be a useful remedy for bedsores & hemorrhoids.
