About the owner:
We are located in a rural town in Northern Georgia. We have 5 children that range in age from 20 down to 4. My husband has been a Police Officer for over 22 years and I am also a former Police Officer that decided to take a large career change to stay home with our children and become a WAHM! Our middle son has suffered from sever eczema since he was a baby. After many oral medications and medical creams, we came upon Northern Essence products. We began using them and soon fell in love! In 2004, Northern Essence was for sale and I has recently left my Police career. I decided to purchase the business and have been enjoying it ever since. We have expanded into many different products that cater to the natural mom/family. We are looking forward to many more years to come.

My son has eczema in the winter months. It gets pretty bad. I would love to know which products, specifically she used to help. I am going to have to go see if they have a way to contact her on her website. Thanks for the heads up.

Lauren said...

Both of my girls had occassional yeast infections when they were is disposables. I would have loved to have known about the better butter cream then. We really don't have any of those issues now that we are in cloth! :)

Tanya said...

So glad you posted this. We have the rare diaper rash from time to time and I never know what to use.

Sara in Seattle said...

I definitely have to try the Better Butter cream! It's great to hear some background about some brands, especially ones I haven't heard much about in the past.

Sarah said...

I really need to try these products. I am having issues with diaper rashes lately. My baby got a bad diaper rash/yeast infection a few weeks ago which caused me to switch to cloth. I only have about 8 diapers so far. Hope to switch full time sometime in the near future. I will have to try these products.

Katrina said...

These look like wonderful natural products. I haven't tried any of them, but would love to.

A Psych Mommy said...

I'd love to try the diaper dust! My baby tends to get yeast infections even with changing his diaper frequently and lots of naked baby time! I'm always willing to give something new a try!

Ashley said...

Oooo, the Northern Essence Soothing Buttermilk Baby Bath sounds perfect! Off to order some!

Denise said...

Jess said...

AScott said...

I have the wipes solution and I love it! I premoisten some wipes and put them in my wipe warmer, then when I need to use it I just squirt some on a wet cloth!

I really want to try that baby bath!

Dani said...

I love Northern Essence products, especially the foaming wipes solution and rash salve. They both last a long time and work so well on my son's super sensitive skin.

hosiewosie said...

although I don't mind ordering online, I wish some of this great stuff was available at the store... just for convenience sake.

Liz said...

I just purchased the salve and the cream...I should probably order the wipes solution! I love the owner's family picture, I always have to look to see where she is- she looks great for having four kids!

Liz said...

Sorry, make that 5 kids!

Rachelle G said...

I have used Northern Essence products since my daughter was born seven months ago. I have used every one of the products listed above, and have been 100% satisfied every time I order! I LOVE the different scents that you can choose from and the quality of their products is fantastic. The customer service is outstanding, and I love that I am supporting a WAHM!

Brittany said...

Now I am even more excited about this week's giveaway! It is great to see CD friendly creams!

MeghanT said...

These products sound fantastic! I would really like to try the wipes solution and the lotion. My son has bad eczema on his legs too. I haven't found the perfect "cure" yet. Maybe Northern Essence is it!

Kristin said...

I've never used Northern Essence products... they sound great! I'll have to try them :) Plus, the owners live in the state I live in! DH travels to rural GA towns all the time and the babe and I usually go with him... I wonder if I've ever been in the same town as these bringers of skin care products?

khrysdoll said...

I have a small sample of the Northern Essence Salve Lav Free. It smell SOOO GOOD! Hopefully, I'll get to try all the other products. I would love to win this week's contest!

God Displayed in my Family said...

I would love to try the whipped lotion, I think it would be too wonderful and I would want to use it for me!

*~*a.l.s*~* said...

This is so great to hear about--I dread C getting a diaper rash because I know it will mess with her pocket dipes. Thanks for reviewing them (and giving away their products!)

Suzy said...

I want to try some of these. I think my son has eczema, but when we go to the ped it is always cleared up.

pamnkevin said...

Northern Essence Better Butt(er) cream is the best. It is definitely my "go to" cream for diaper rash.

Aimee said...

i would love to try this brand i have herad nothing but good things about it. thanks for the info.

Hillary Pennington said...

I think I just might have to give these products a shot. Since I've switched to cloth diapers, I've been wondering what to do about those pesky rashes (not that there are too many). And my newest seems to already have a nice case of eczema, taking after her mommy (how sweet).

Kathy said...

Sounds lovely!

mearat said...

My son has horrible eczema. I wish I could try this for him.

Kelly said...

After reading this product post I am definitely more excited about this week's giveaway. I am excited about the wipe solution and the better butter cream. And I love the fact that the owner lives in the same state as I do.

Amanda said...

Wow! I really wish I knew about the Better Butter Cream back when my DD & went through thrush. It probably would have helped her little bottom and maybe even helped my breasts.
