Definitions and other frequently asked questions
Liniment is an ancestral recipe from the south of France where it was used for baby care and in particular for seat care.
The oleo-limestone liniment is a natural product, based on olive oil (oleo) and calcium hydroxide (limestone). The latter being commonly called lime water.
This mixture has the consistency of semi-thick yellow milk.
The liniment cleans baby's bottom wonderfully and replaces toilet milk and other wet wipes. Just put a little bit of the mixture on a cotton pad or washable wipe. There is no need to rinse and this would be counterproductive, if its texture leaves a protective greasy film which isolates friction and moisture from the layers.
Some mothers use it as a make-up remover, to remove remnants of depilatory wax or sticking plaster, as a nourishing cream, etc.
It can also be used against cradle cap for infants or to wash the face of older children.
A bottle with a soap pump is very suitable for putting the necessary amount on the cotton. Lime water has cleaning and purifying properties and also neutralizes the acidity of urine.
Store away from light and heat. Shake before use if necessary.
The liniment can be made with different oils in which flowers have macerated. For example, Calendula macerate (marigold flowers), a plant with soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, is ideal for irritations in the baby's seat or for the delicate skin of newborns.
