How sweet it is



Go ahead. Ask my mother-in-law. And my sister. And my neighbor.

They all think I'm crazy-obsessive about a lot of what I do with Buttercup, what with my homemade baby food and rules about what she can eat and what she can't and keeping Buttercup's car seat rear-facing until she's at least 30 pounds, and yes, the list goes on so I'll just stop there.


I just have very strong feelings about how to parent my daughter and keep her as safe as I can, so it would only follow that I'm the same about what I choose to use on her skin to keep it soft and moisturized.


So you can only imagine how happy I am to find the Thymes Sweetleaf Baby line of products. Made of calming organic lavendar, chamomile, and aloe vera, the products are gentle enough for newborn skin and smell so baby sweet.


Since finding Thymes Sweetleaf Baby Lotion ($16.00), I have fallen in love with the barely-there scent of rose, jasmine, sandalwood and amber on my little baby. And since receiving the lotion, Buttercup has come to expect a sweet little baby massage after her baths, which are now required to end with me pretending to eat her toes.


The whole thing ends in giggles, nuzzles, and hugs, and I love every minute of it.


I also love that the Sweetleaf Baby Lotion, which includes shea butter and honey in its ingredients, is Paraben-free.


Another favorite is the Sweetleaf Baby Nursery Diffuser ($40.00). I love scents, and this is one way to allow for that in Buttercup's room without having to worry about a candle flame. Thymes' reed diffuser utilizes bamboo to gently release the light aroma into the nursery, and I couldn't be happier with the results.


You have the chance to enjoy a Sweetleaf Reed Diffuser in your own little one's nursery or bedroom. Just visit the Thymes site and leave me a berrie (read: comment) by midnight EST on July 8 telling me what mom or baby product most interests you and why.


I'll pick one lucky winner at random and will be submit the information to PRIZEYWinners.


Good luck!

I always find myself looking at the lavender lotions, etc. This time though the Red Cherie AHA Body Lotion looks fabulous. Thanks.

Jenna said...

That is an awesome website FULL of products! Something that caught my attention is the Sweetleaf Baby Massage Oil. It doesnt appear to have an overpowering scent and is for sensitive skin which is a BIG thing in my family!

Bunny B said...

I've wanted to try the Nursery Mist. Sandalwood is one of my most favorite smells...MMMMM!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Cuddle Cottage said...

The Sweetleaf baby drawer liners are my choice. I leave bars of rosewater soap in my daughters' drawers and her clothes always have the most delightful smell. It sounds like the Sweetleaf liners would leave the clothes with a nice but not overpowering smell.

Sassy Pink Boutique said...

My 22 month old loves washing his hands now. The Sweetleaf Baby Instant Hand Cleanser and soap looks like it would be perfect for him.

jeanne winters said...

I love home fragrance ... with 2 little ones and a dog I need all the boosts I can get! I like candles and diffusers. Thanks!

Meg said...

The Sweetleaf Baby Luxury Gift Set is the type of gift I would LOVE to be able to give or receive one day. Everything abt it is sweet from the packaging to the scent.

I like the sink sets. They look so classy. Maybe in lavender or olive leaf?

Beki said...

I'm a sucker for a good exfoliating bar so... the Frasier Fir Bar Soap Set caught my eye!

mom2boys said...

I'm a big candle fan. I love like any kind of good smelling candles and diffusers. Thanks for the giveaway!

Reiza said...

The Sweetleaf Baby Luxury Gift Set caught my eye.

Lo said...

I would try the baby massage oil. I love good-smelling ones.

Kimberly said...

I think all the scents sound wonderful but I guess I'd have to pick White Persimmon because it has that hint of vanilla to it and my husband LOVES the smell of vanilla.

THANKS!

I would choose the Red Cherie Body Scrub. I need to pamper myself for a change.

Heather said...

I would love to try the Green Tea Home Fragrance Mist!

SECAVEN said...

i love the gardener soap pebbles. very unique - they look just like pebbles from the garden. i use exfoliating soaps on a regular basis and this one is different than any one i have seen or used. it has walnut shells and apricot kernals for scrubbing that dead skin away. i'm thinking i'm going to have to give these a try. they would make awesome gifts once the recipient got over that fact that i gave her a box of rocks! ha! ha!

I really like the sink sets, my kitchen could use some help there!

Buki Family said...

i can just imagine how nice all the candles smell..

Kathleen @ Katydid & Kid said...

I can so relate to your post regarding your strong feelings about raising your child. My parents and in-laws are always second guessing my "weird" parenting things (such as using the car seat at all times..UNBELIEVABLE!). I too try to use all natural and organic products when I can and I just change the subject when people start undercutting my decisions.

Anyway, I love the products at Thymes. The Blanket Wash and the Nursery Kit are my favorite things. I'd love to win the reed diffuser as sometimes the diaper bin is a bit too stinky! Thanks for sharing!

ticole96 said...

There are so many good things! I think the bath salts would be great to use after a long day at work... thanks!

hannademaster said...

I have to say, the wild ginger whipped body cream sounds pretty good!

NateAndJakesMom said...

I hate the way my baby's clothing smells after spending too much time in the wood drawers and the SweetLeaf drawer liners would be great!

lace said...

The sweetleaf baby shampoo looks great. I love that they use organic products and it has no parabens

Anonymous said...

I use the baby shampoo and love the way it makes my little guy's hair smell

Julie said...

The Apricot Quince dishwashing liquid, along with all the other products, is something I'd like to have. Good luck to all!

misty said...

The Sweetleaf baby shampoo conditioners because I'm not happy with the kind I use now. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

Melissa said...

I'd love to try the sweetleaf baby massage oil.. I never knew how much babies loved to have their legs and feet massaged until my aunt pointed it out. What a great way to remind myself to do that and make baby smell good all at once! jeepcutie82 at msn dot com

said...

Thymes stuff is always soo pretty! I'm going to order the Sweetleaf baby lotion cause I'm hearing a lot of Mom's talking about it!

Also the Red Cherrie lotion sounds lovely!

quitecontrary1977 said...

Sherry said...

Red Cherie Body Scrub is nice for mom. As for baby definitely the Sweetleaft bar soap because baby skin is delicate.

Hope I will win.

my email sherrygo (at)hotmail dot com

Jess said...

I really like their apricot quince luxury set or the kumquat lime...both seem like they would be good for the summer or those days you wish it was summer! Thanks for the giveaway!

Dolly said...

sweetleaf baby massage oil...because it's non-greasy and quick absorbing. i love giving calvin massages...but sometiems the grapeseed oil is just a little too greasy afterward, and i don't necessarily care for him to have that slicked back, greaser hairdo. plus, he's more slippery than a greased pig at the rodeo...and my boy can MOVE. uber hard to get mister "roll-over and crawl away" into his diaper and pjs when he's so slick...but i still want to give him a post bath massage. thyme's massage oil just might do the trick.

Mama Zen said...

It's almost vacation time, so I'm interested in the travel kit!

Stacy said...

Love the sink set in Wild ginger

Staci said...

The Blanket Wash sounds really nice. I love it when my kids clothes and blankets smell good. I like it even more when they are not washed with things that are harsh on their skin.

Christian Kay said...

Well you now have me craving sweetleaf scented baby skin so I'm going to have to say the lotion! Nummers....baby toes are the best aren't they? :)

Susanne said...

I'd love the Verbena Bamboo Reed Diffuser. All of the products look great!

threadbeaur said...

OH, all of the products look so wonderful. The Sweetleaf Baby Blanket Wash sounds great. I think that smell is very important to development, and there is no better place to have a great fresh scent than on the blanket.

TINKMH said...

I would love the sweetleaf baby diffusers or anything like that, I have never tried diffusers and am very curious about them!

Mary512 said...

I would love the sweetleaf baby blanket wash to help spruce up my daughters blankets. Great giveaway, thanks!

CJW's folks said...

Eucalyptus Hand Cream! I love the smell of eucalyptus and would love to have it on me all day long!

Alice H said...

The sweetleaf baby wash/shampoo - though all the baby products look wonderful. Like the blanket wash. Thanks for the contest! afdr3d@umkc.edu

moushka said...

I just got a new Niece so the Sweetleaf Baby Nursery Kit would be perfect for her.

Jennifer said...

The diffuser would've been my 1st pick, but my next choice would be the Sweetleaf Baby Lotion. I love lotions & it's important to start moisturizing early in life! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome diffuser!

Happy 4th!

jeske_posse said...

I'd like to try a diffuser in one of the fragrance catagories (Fresh, Wood or Oriental)!

LisaW said...

The Sweetleaf Baby Nursery Mist sounds really nice. I have 3 kids in diapers, and their room doesn't always smell "fresh, clean and completely irresistible"

Audrey said...

I'd like to try the Sweetleaf Baby Blanket Wash. I'm always looking for milder cleaning products.

Michele P. said...

the sweetleaf baby massage oil sounds like something I'd like to try. Touch is important, and all babies love to get a nice massage. We used to massage my daughter when she was an infant & she loved it!

Kimberly said...

I love THYMES products, there is just something luxurious about their products and scents. I would like to try the Sweetleaf Baby Lotion - love the scent of rose and sandlewood - plus it has honey and vitamin E

Liz Casstro said...

I am in love with smelly hand soaps and sweet smelling baby products. Their items looks as good as they smell! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Well, besides the scent you showcased.... :0)
I think the Kimono Rose products interest me most by the description -- I love Asian influences in scents, and the foaming bath wash sounds wonderful!

Thanks!

Amy said...

I would love to try the Lavender Bergamot Hand Lotion because it comes in a handy pump bottle (most hand lotions are in tubes), and O love lavender.

Jennifer said...

Well...the luxury set so I could get everything!!! Muwahahaha....but if I had to pick just one, definitely the massage oil to keep my daughter's skin so soft.

dolls123 said...

I like the Anjou Vert Reed Diffuser. I'm starting to use these now instead of burning candles.

Shannon said...

I'd like to try the Sweetleaf Nurset Set for baby because its a variety of there baby products and I love when Tristan is clean and smelling good.

pintolinda said...

ziggy789 said...

I love the Sweetleaf Baby Gift set! This is really cute! Would love to have it for the baby we just found out that we were having!!

Love the lavender lotions.

ShopMonkey said...

The Azur products sucked me right in! I have always felt most at home by the ocean and I love the scents associated with it.

sublimejen said...

Im also interested in the shampoos & conditioners :)

I liked the Sweetleaf Baby Lotion. There's nothing like giving your baby a massage and then cuddling with sweet scents!

angela said...

The apricot quince hand cream would be wonderful to try!

Malagasy Vanille Candle sounds like it would have an awesome scent to it. I love candles and this is my choice.

I would love to win! I love the lavendar lotions...I need helping drifting off to sleep often and these are oh so nice!

judybrittle said...

I would like the filigree body wash and the shampoos.

bavaria said...

the kumquat lime candles sounds great but so does the Sweetleaf Baby Massage Oil and the sweetleaf baby wash & shampoo ..ok its really hard to pick only one .. :) thanx!

Kimberly @ AllAboutKimberly said...

This is an interesting contest. I had never heard of Thymes so I'm intrigued. I spent way too much time browsing their site so it's hard to narrow it down to just one item. :) I do LOVE my bubble bath to unwind at the end of the week though so I think my favorite product is the lavender bath products. They had several products, but if I have to pick just one, it would be the bubble bath I guess.

Stacey said...

Love the lavender bergamot collection - smells so good!!

Jackie B. said...

I have an obsession with shower gels. I would love to try the Red Cherie Body Wash. I bet it would smell divine.

blueviolet said...

The Apricot Quince Hard-Working Hand Cream is calling out to me. My hands are ridiculously dry all the time partly because I wash my hands so much. This sounds soothing and moisturizing and the smell sounds heavenly.

bboyle said...

I like the Eucalyptus Glycerine Soap because I think my husband would use it and I use fragrant soaps to make our bathroom smell good.

Brooke said...

The Diffusers - ALL of them - interest me. My husband is an incense FREAK and I can't stand incense. I suspect the reeds are more subtle and I'll feel a ton better without the fire hazard.

pipasmom said...

I like the Red Cherry products, as well as all the candles and the sweet leaf wash/shampoo.

The Gardener Sink Set

Gus and Clay's Mama said...

Anything lavendar- or maybe that cherry body scrub one- that looked scrumptuous!

Naomi said...

I'd love to try the Nursery Mist.

Shenna said...

I actually love the reed dispenser. I have been wanting to get something like this for the nursery, as lighting candles make me a little nervous with a toddler and a baby.

girlof80s said...

The products that interest me the most are Sleep Well AHA Body Lotion, Sleep Well Tension Spot Relief, Red Cherie AHA Body Lotion, Apricot Quince Hand Wash, Red Cherie Hand Wash, and Mandarin Coriander Hand Wash. This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win. Thanks.

The lavender hand soap and lotion is really nice. But I'm torn between that and the nurser diffuser!

jjbianchi2007@yahoo.com

- Marybeth I. said...

I really change scents depending on my mood. One thing I love is all of the soaps offered. Triple milled, glycerine, etc. The Fig leaf soap sounds lovely!

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

The diaper balm looks like a good product. It is hard to find something when the diaper rash hits other than the old standby and it's greasy.

I think the diffuser looks like a sweet giveaway. Thanks!

matternu said...

I would love to try the Red Cherie AHA Body Lotion,it sounds like the scent is different and would smell wonderful. I love to try new scents and haven't tried this one.
Count me in to win

traymona said...

Kimono Rose Eau de Parfum looks like something I would like but it's hard to tell about perfumes unless you can smell them. They need scratch n' sniffs for the computer. I also like the reed diffusers in the oriental and fresh scents. Reed diffusers are so long lsting. They actually save money over plugins and sprays.

bavaria said...

i really like the Sweetleaf Baby Nursery Diffuser. Sounds so nice and not overpowering like so many others.thanks!
