Neil’s Yard Remedies products have had a special place in my heart and home for many years. In fact, it was the example set by them with their organic revolution, that inspired me to start Natural Organic for Baby.
In my first pregnancy I just bought and used what was in my local supermarket, until my new son Jack developed skin conditions. Every time I bathed him or used any kind of cream on him he would come out in a horrendous rash.
I swapped and changed products from scented to unscented (from the supermarket), but everything seemed to irritate him. This got so bad in the first year, that I took him to the doctors and in the end was prescribed cream and a horrible bath lotion that he had to be bathed in.
As Jack’s skin started to slowly clear up, a friend recommended a range of products to try. I had never even considered natural organic products before this. After 8 months of Jack crying from his irritated skin, I figured I had nothing to lose.
From the first product I tried, I saw an immediate improvement. Jack didn’t have a massive red rash when he came out of the bath, and he smelt delicious, not like the medical baby bath we had had to use for months.
From that first night I decided to swap all the products I used on Jack to all natural and organic baby products, and I never within a few weeks, all of his skin conditions cleared up.
From then on my home, nursery and changing bag was filled with wonderful blue bottles and jars. So I wanted to share with you the wonderful products that I loved during my two children’s baby years, so that hopefully they will convince you to make the change from supermarket bought lotions and potions that are full of chemicals, to the all natural organic baby products by NYR Organic UK.
About Neal’s Yard Remedies
Established in 1981 in a quiet corner of Covent Garden, Neal’s Yard remedies did exactly what it said on the tin, it made remedies. With their belief that outer beauty and inner health should be in perfect balance.
They decided even at the beginning, that they would only use the highest possible percentage of organic ingredients as they were kinder to the environment and kinder to you their customers.
From those humble beginnings the Kindersley family have made this company into the iconic brand that it is today. Creating award-winning health and beauty products that are natural, organic and ethical.
They are passionate advocates of organic living, and they want to help you to live your life happier, healthier, whilst protecting our beautiful planet.
Neal’s Yard Remedies are truly a pioneering force, they inspired me and all of us here at Natural Organic For Baby, and now I am sure their wonderful Mother and baby products will inspire you too.
Why do I love Neal’s Yard Remedies ?
Why are all natural and organic products better than supermarket bought ones?
Many mass-produced, mass marketed products have one goal in mind, to make money. They see a consumer need and they want to exploit that as much as possible.
This means they find ways to make the products (and packaging) as cheap as possible. They want you to mindlessly pick up their product from the shelf and not think about what is in it, or what processes have happened in order for it to be there.
On the face of it, there is nothing wrong with what we have all done for years. However then I had an awakening.
The products I was putting on my baby’s skin was causing this terrible skin condition!, I did it to him, by mindlessly shopping for the cheapest and easiest product.
But when you delve behind the doors of how these products are made and what ingredients go into them, I am sure you will agree, they are not the kind of things you would put on your baby knowingly.
Many baby products are filled with chemicals, Parabens, Synthetic fragrances and colours and GMO (Genetically modified) ingredients.
They are often tested on animals and are packaged in single use plastic, and here’s the shocker, many of the products have plastic actually in them! Yes you heard me right! They put tiny bits of plastic into products. It is not just the plastic that we can see that is affecting our planet, it is the plastic in the products that are being washed down our drains and into the oceans.
It has recently been reported that scientists have found plastic in the deepest depths of our oceans, and anyone who watched David Attenboroughs Blue Planet couldn’t fail to see what plastic waste is doing to our oceans and natural habitats.
All natural and organic baby products are made with love. Yes of course they still need to make money, but they make it with a clear conscience from their service to you and the planet.

Baby Lotion 200ml
This was the second product I tried on my son Jacks highly sensitive skin. It was so nice to use a lotion that didn’t leave a film and smelt of medicine. This was a lovely experience for us both, and it never caused him to get the horrendous rash, other non organic products had.
This was so nice, I even used it on my post pregnancy sensitive skin and i never reacted and had lovely nourished skin too.
Enriched with naturally soothing star flower and relaxing lavender oils, this organic lotion is gently softening and soothing.
It is really easily absorbed, so you don’t get any sticky or slippy residue, and is perfect for baby’s with highly sensitive skin like my Jack.
- Softening and soothing
- Light and easily absorbed
- Hypoallergenic and Dermatological tested
- Gentle enough for newborns (3kg/6lb 10oz+)
Baby Massage Oil
Both of my babies loved being massaged, Jack more so than Jessica. We loved our evening bath time routine. Even from a very young age I introduced a routine. There was wind down, bath, massage or moisturising, getting into baby grow and then I would sit cuddling and talking to them. As they got older I introduced a story (even when they were babies.
I used to massage and then let them have a bit of naked, nappy off time. Mine absolutely loved the freedom! . Baby massage can be an incredibly bonding experience for both you and your baby. It doesn’t have to be a whole massage routine, or for any huge length of time, you also don’t have to go to a class (although they are great), it can just be a quick.
However this 100% organic oil gently softens for a soothing bonding massage, so you both may want to enjoy the moment for a while!
Infused with chamomile, rose and lavender essential oils, it is so relaxing for both of you, and it is perfect for baby’s even with the most sensitive skins.
- certified 100% organic by the soil association
- Hypoallergenic and Dermatological tested
- Gentle enough for new born (3kg/6lb 10oz)
Pure Baby Oil
This lovely 100% organic baby oil is allergy certified, so will be suitable for your baby if they suffer with allergies. It gently softens, and soothes you baby’s skin.
This oil can be used for a bonding massage if your baby’s skin is too sensitive to use the baby massage oil above. If you baby’s skin is so sensitive it can’t even tolerate the slightest scent or aromatherapy oils, then switch to this oil.
- Nurtures and soothes
- Fragrance Free
- Ideal Gift for new parents
- Dermatological tested
- Free from synthetic fragrances, Colours, parabens and non GMO
- Comes in a glass blue bottle
This baby balm became my absolute go to and saviour during Jacks early days, moths and years. With his skin having flare-ups, I needed something to sooth any irritations quick and this was my knight in organic armour many times!.
It is a 100% organic wonder balm, being able to soften your baby’s face, body and bottom. This allergy certified balm is a fragrance free blend of soothing and nourishing Shea butter and botanical oils, it is perfect and my personal recommendation, if your baby has sensitive skin.
Use it on patches of skin, on any irritation and on your baby’s bottom if it is sore, or for every nappy change.
The wonderful people at Neal’s’s Yard Remedies have replaced the olive oil from their old formulation of this product, with sunflower oil. This is rich in linoleic acid, which helps to nourish your baby’s skin.
- Fragrance Free, softening balm
- ideal gift for new parents
- dermatologically tested
- Free from synthetic fragrances, colours, parabens and non-GMO
- My Highly recommended product!! Every baby changing bag should have a pot of this in it!
Baby Barrier Cream
Another absolute favourite of mine, an organic pot of greatness that stayed with me through both my baby’s first years. Jack suffered with a sore bottom a lot, and this was a cause of him not sleeping at all. I tried nappy cream, after nappy cream and then tried this one.
The result was so good, after only a few days, that Jack slept much better!. This barrier cream is also in my ‘Must Have’ recommendations and tops my ‘best of’ when it comes to baby creams time and time again. I admit I used a combination of a couple of ‘nappy creams’, but this was always in my changing bag or on my changing table.
This barrier cream helps keep your bay’s skin so soft and comfortable. Made with nourishing organic beeswax and organic chamomile, it is suitable for your baby if they have sensitive skin.
- Helps keep your baby’s skin soft and comfortable
- Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested
- Gentle enough for your newborn (3kg/6lb 10 oz and over)
Apply this barrier cream at each nappy change to help keep your baby’s bottom soft and comfortable and free of soreness.
Organic Baby Powder
Obviously you wouldn’t want to risk anything like that on your precious new baby. However, you may have found Talc powder was great for soothing sore bottoms or irritated skin, or your Mum may have used it on you when you were a baby and growing up.
I know my daughter suffers terribly with sore rubbed skin after swimming and sports, and she found that powder really soothed and smoothed the area quickly. Where her skin rubbed it would glide.
So we swapped to Neal’s Yard remedies Baby Powder, and this still graces my bathroom shelf to this day (Jessica is 10 now!).
This Organic Baby Powder softens and refreshes your baby’s (or toddler, child or your own), skin. It is talc-free and organic, made from corn starch and chamomile. Giving you a light, fine and delicate powder which is perfect for your baby.
- Softens and freshening
- Made with organic corn starch
- Certified Organic by the Soil Association
- Talc-Free and fragrance-free
- Gentle enough for newborns (3kg/6lb 10 oz +)
- Comes in an aluminum container, that not only looks fabulous, but can be recycled.
You can use this by drying your baby’s skin thoroughly and shaking the powder and smoothing over your baby’s skin.
Great Organic Care for Mums
Being pregnant or having a baby is not just all about caring for the baby, although it may feel like it sometimes. As a mother you may get so caught up in caring for baby and being a Mum that you forget to practice self care.
Self Care is not selfish (well it is, but in a good way). I give you permission to be a little ‘selfish’, because if you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of anyone else, especially a baby. It is essential that you care for your ever-changing body and mind.
During pregnancy, you come to terms with a growing body, a bump forming. Anxieties and stresses and hopes and joys. After pregnancy you may be exhausted, with a stretched tired body and mind. You may have been cut or had a C-section, these all take their tolls on you.
After the birth of my first baby, luxury and self care was just having the time to wash my hair! However, after giving birth a second time, I learned the lessons and took more time for myself, to bathe, sleep, or just go for a walk or shopping trip alone. I asked people for help. I let my husband do his bit and let go of control (just a little). My mental and physical health really benefited from it.
So give yourself permission and the time to practice self care, even if that is ten minutes to have a quick soak, or 5 minutes to breath and massage your body. Go on treat and care for yourself for a change!
Mothers Bath Oil
This beautifully aromatic skin-nourishing bath oil not only replenishes and relaxes you, but also encourages a sense of well being.
- Beautifully uplifting
- Made with Skin Nourishing oils
- Made with uplifting ylang ylang and bergamot essential oils, for an aromatherapy experience.
- Comes in a beautiful blue glass bottle
- Bottle can be up cycled or reused at home after use, or can be recycled.
All you have to do to experience this organic treat is ass a tablespoon of bath oil under warm running taps. Use it as often as you desire and it can be used both during and after pregnancy.
Although this is my highly recommended for both new and expectant mothers, this also makes a wonderful relaxing and uplifting treat for anyone. Even Mother and Baby magazine say this is ‘the perfect treat for a new Mum’, so go on treat yourself!
Organic Mothers Massage Oil 100ml
I really loved this oil and used it during and after my second pregnancy. I used it to rub on my growing bump and then my stretch mark areas. It really helped, to minimise the stretchmarks, to the extent that now I don’t have hardly any, even after having a 9lb 6oz baby!!.
This oil is also percent for giving a relaxing massage. you just pour a small amount of oil into your palm, rub your hands together to warm up the oil, and then massage into the skin.
Like I have said this is great for massaging areas prone to stretch marks, such as your upper thighs, upper arms and bum area.
If you are prone to dry skin, you can use after a bath or shower, whilst your skin is still damp.
- Skin-nourishing and relaxing
- Made with relaxing neroli and vitamin E-rich wheatgerm oil

Mother’s Balm 120g
This Balm was actually sent from the gods! It is wonderful, I used it during and after my second pregnancy and when combining it with the massage oil above, I really believe this is one of the reasons I don’t have bad stretch marks now. I was huge in my pregnancy, as I said before I was carrying a 9lb 6oz baby around and my bump got huge.
I just treated myself to a massage with this on and around my bump morning and night, and it worked miracles for me!
Mother’s Balm is 100% organic and fragrance-free. Consumer trials, conducted by Neal’s Yard remedies, have proven It improves the appearance of stretch marks.
