This post was brought to you by Tasneem Naturel, but the images and opinions are my own.

Being a baby is a hard business, from upset stomach to tantrums to a scary event like cold, flu and cough, and more as they begin to explore. Not to say, lots of babies are suffer from dry and sensitive skin. 

Talking about skin... I am super picky about what goes on my skin, and of course, my children. I am addicted to checking ingredient list, not only cosmetics but literally everything. It became my habit. I just like to avoid ingredients that are harsh on skin and harder on the environment. You don't want to deal with irritation because of adverse allergy from the product, don't you? That is why I typically choose ingredients I can pronounce, and ingredients that I can readily identify. Invest in a brand that uses high quality, mild and effective ingredients!

Let me introduce baby balms from Tasneem Naturel, your natural first aid kit in a jar. They help to soothe and moisturise using only the safest, natural and purest ingredients, perfect for delicate baby skin. Check out the ingredients: carrier essential oil, beeswax, shea butter, Roman chamomile. Do you see anything remotely 'nasty' there? I certainly don't and that is just the first reason why I would buy these products again in the future and why I would highly recommend them to other parents and their children. It contains no chemicals, synthetics, fragrance, parabens or SLSs, so you can be confident your baby will not be ingesting anything nasty into their tiny body.

There are four types of balms:

TASNEEM NATUREL CF-RUB


Ingredients: Carrier oil, Shea butter, Beeswax, Lemon, Orange, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Cypress, Tea tree, Frankiscence.

It's always worrisome when my little one suddenly catches cold and becomes uncomfortable and clingy. But what is the safest way to treat my baby's cold, cough and fever naturally? The CF-Rub or Cough-Flu balm. It helps to soothe symptoms of flu and cough so that baby feels much better. Essential oils like carrier and eucalyptus essential oil are great for loosening congestion and mucous, make the cough more productive and fighting the cold itself. Lemon is a natural disinfectant, that is naturally anti-bacterial. It can help to ease anxiety and depression to the baby. While lavender really helps your baby to relax and quick relief. And if coughing is spasmodic, where your baby cannot seem to catch her/his breath, cypress is the best ingredient that helps to open the airways and make breathing easier.

Just apply the balm on the soles of baby feet, on the chest and back, neck, top of nose and temples to open up the nasal passages and relieve sinus tension.

TASNEEM NATUREL CALM TIME

Ingredients: Carrier oil, Shea buetter, Beeswax, Lavender, Orange, Mandarin, Geranium, Marjoram, Frankiscence, Bergamot, Roman chamomile.

Ever feel stressed out, tense or tight when your baby or toddler is having a meltdown? I do! As a new parent, getting my baby to calm well poses challenges for us. And if your baby deals with allergies, chances are you already know about just how much stress and sleepless nights can make things worse. It can influence the immune system in a negative way. The Calm Time was developed with my respect for the simple act of touch as healing, the powerful act of inhaling the calming and soothing properties of bergamot, lavender, frankincense and Roman chamomile. The combination of these three herbs is the best, effective natural herbal remedy that many parents love. My favourite reasons to use the Calm Time are:
  1. It helps calm the nerves, soothe mind and relax the body without any negative side effects.
  2. It helps with anxiety and mood for a very long time. For babies or toddlers who struggle with agitation, discomfort inflammation caused of teething, it can be a real help.
Apply it on pulse points (where your baby heart rate can be felt), behind ear lobes, at the back and on the soles of baby feet.


TASNEEM NATUREL SLEEP TIME



Sleep; young or old, we all need it. With a small baby, bedtime can be a little... challenging. One of my favourite ways to help him calm down and get ready for bed is with herbal balm. Using Sleep Time is a wonderful way to help restless babies drift off and get the healing sleep they need. Thanks to the purifying aromas and magical synergy of lavender and Roman chamomile combined with a light silky blend of carrier oil, ylang-ylang and cedarwood. It gently relaxes the body, help the brain function slow down, thus calms the mind and reducing stress. Skin is left feeling soft and hydrated too, thanks to the shea butter and beeswax. Unlike many over the counter drugs, this balm is not habit forming and does not leave your baby groggy in the morning. Rub in small amounts on wrists, behind ear lobes, temples and feet for those extra tricky nights when your baby is over-tired and teething, to bring beautiful dreams and a beautiful night's sleep. It's great to help calm.

TASNEEM NATUREL TUMMY TIME



Gas in a newborn baby is most often the result of an immature gut. It is very common that over 70% of babies get it. They are not born with the good bacteria that help digest food, and this causes gas. It affects both breast and bottle-fed babies. Crying and teething introduce more air bubbles into the stomach and/or passed on to the intestine. Not sure how to help when your baby is suffering from occasional gas pain or colic, constipation and bloated tummy? The good news is that, there is a way to soothe your baby. I have successfully calmed my baby with herbal remedies called the Tummy Time. It can be used as your next baby telon. This baby balm carries nourishing essential oils of warming ginger, relaxing peppermint and lemongrass, in a base of light carrier oil. It's a perfectly natural baby oil, approved by MOH - made for special time together.

Massage your baby tummy and on the soles of baby feet regularly with baby balm works wonders in reducing and preventing the gassy pain and bloatedness. This soft pressure can relieve discomfort, helping baby's innate digestion process and prevent gas because it helps your baby burp. And you will both enjoy the closeness of cuddles with a gentle massage that warms and relaxes baby.


Afterall, babies need to be held, carried, and touched by the parents. Love and hug them. This is without a doubt their most important ingredient in every one of products. There are made lovingly and designed to promote and enhance the health and well-being of our family on many levels. To be honest, I'm super psyched to have added Tasneem Naturel's baby balm products to my baby's daily usage. They became a part of my day, our nights and I saw how beneficial it was for my baby needs. Tasneem Naturel's baby balms are a must-have for your infant.

These products are approved by Ministry of Healthy of Malaysia (MOH).
