Liniment is a natural product based on limewater (calcium hydroxide) and maceration of calendula.
The liniment is wonderful for cleaning babies' bottoms and replaces baby cleansing lotion and other wet wipes. The product is guaranteed 100% natural.
It's easy to use: just put a little of the mixture on a cotton pad or a washable cloth. It is not necessary to rinse because its texture leaves an oily film that protects baby's bottom from friction and the moisture from nappies.
In addition, Love me Doux liniment does not have chemically corrected pH, unlike the majority of liniments on the market. Which means its slightly basic pH will counteract the acidity of baby's urine.
This liniment is made with maceration of calendula.
The calendula or garden marigold, with its beautiful orange flower, gets its French name "souci" from the Latin verb "solsequier", which means, "who follows the sun", because its flowers open as the sun rises and close as it sets.
The medicinal virtues of calendula were already well known in the Middle Ages, when St. Hildegard and Albertus Magnus prescribed it against insect and snake bites.
Today, calendula is widely used in hygiene and baby care products for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties (for skin irritations, burns...). *
Other recommended uses:
Some mothers use it as a make-up remover, to remove traces of hair removing wax or plasters, as a nourishing cream, etc...
It can also be used for milk crust or to clean the faces of older children.
