Win a Mother and Baby Pack from Katharine Botanicals

Calendula. It’s a word that didn’t enter my life before I became a mother. Oh, I’d probably heard it before but I wasn’t paying attention. Becoming responsible for a whole new person, so fragile, right at the beginning of her journey, made me become a lot more conscious of the ingredients found in the lotions and potions that have become part of our everyday lives. Now, I’m enamoured of anything that leaves out the parabens, employs active, natural ingredients while still smelling and making me feel beautiful.

Win Katharine Botanicals

Katharine Botanicals seems to tick all of those boxes. The Stretch Mark Lotion, Baby’s Bottom Cream and Nipple Cream all share fresh scents and are luxuriant to the touch. Pregnancy and the postpartum period are times when all our senses and sensitivities are heightened. They’re also times of transition. These products offer another amazing way to pause during these periods and take time to nurture yourself and your baby. I really believe it’s important to do that.

Katharine Botanicals Stretch Mark Lotion

The Stretch Mark Lotion contains organic calendula as do the Baby’s Bottom Cream and Nipple Cream. I’ve been enjoying massaging it into my bump and thighs and just breathing it in. Just lovely.

Anyway, I’m giving away all three on this here blog. To enter, leave a comment telling me how you make time to pause and reflect, during the day or the week and fill in the Rafflecopter below. Entries close on October 23rd and a winner will be chosen at random and announced here on the blog the next day. Enjoy!

Over 18, UK residents only.

    With two on the go and 32 weeks and counting pausing and reflecting is something I am looking forward to in about 18 years! At present such time that might otherwise be given to pausing is taken up with diving under the duvet for what sleep there is to be had:)

    I like to keep a copy of Juno in the bathroom and to call down and tell him mummy’s just having a wee when actually mummy’s just finishing an article. Does the job for me!

    I don’t think I take much me time tbh. Maybe a bit of the ole cuppa & cake while ds is napping. Which has been very erratic lately 🙁

    During bath time – I get a complete half hour peace and quite to sit and do nothing – helps me process the day and relax x

    Normally it is by running but now I can’t I’m struggling to find that space for just me

    Leaning out the window upstairs and looking out at the beautiful view we have across the fields full of sheep and cows, it’s just lovely
