My little one arrived a week early so I didn't have this immediately after. I wish I had this jar of goodness sooner, because the hospital spray and pads can't touch the glory it bestows on your sore/swollen lower parts. 3rd degree tears, and I feel like I am in heaven now. Worth every penny!
Organic Perineal Balm
NOW 100% ORGANIC! NEW NAME & LOOK! Earth Mama Angel Baby's Mama Bottom Balm is now Earth Mama's Organic Perineal Balm!
Now 100% organic! Truth: Growing and giving birth to baby is magical, but it can do a number “down there.” If we could write a vajingle for this salve — and play it every time you open this jar — we would. But we can’t, so we’ll say this: effective Organic Perineal Balm helps provide lasting, cooling comfort for pregnancy and postpartum places. And remember, your body WILL go back to normal — a new normal, but normal nonetheless. Promise.
Organic Perineal Balm is made with organic herbs and oils the way herbalists make it, with an exclusive blend of organic witch hazel, lavender, peppermint and other like-minded botanicals traditionally used to soothe, cool and provide relief “down there” before and after childbirth.
A QUICK HOW-TO
Store in the refrigerator for extra cooling, apply 2-3 times a day — and you'll be sitting pretty in no time.

This stuff worked great for hemorrhoids that I experienced both while pregnant and postpartum. It has a great, subtle scent and feels amazing. I never did try it out on my healing tear, but I'm sure it would have felt great on that too!
I was SO disappointed when I read the ingredients and saw that the new formulation contains bees wax, while the old formula used candelilla wax. One of the reasons I loved your brand was because it was vegan, but I have been noticing that the new products in the new packaging are no longer considered vegan, as they all seem to have beeswax. I am so sad that I will have to find alternatives and I'm praying the c-mama balm doesn't change also! Please bring back your old formulas! -------------------------------------------- Earth Mama HQ response: We know, we hear you and we love our vegan customers. We loved our candelilla balm formula too. Whenever we have a chance to make a product more organic we make that choice. We’ve chosen certified organic beeswax to replace candelilla wax, which is not available as a certified organic product. This makes the balms even more organic. We still do have many vegan products available! <3
I used this just last month after having a vaginal birth with my new baby girl. Absolutely loved it cooling and lasts a while. I had heard this was a must have product for post partum and it totally is. I will buy this for anyone having a baby.
I do not recommend this product for your sensitive bottom after having a baby, due to the painful burning sensation I got which I believe is from the peppermint oil. If it didn't have the peppermint oil I'm sure it would be wonderful. ---------------------------------------------- Earth Mama HQ response: It is extremely rare that we hear of someone having a reaction to Mama Bottom Balm, and we hope your nethers feel better! Though the ingredients are clinically tested for irritation that doesn't mean there isn't something in it that you are sensitive to – the peppermint that is a cooling sensation for most could be intense for a few. Every Earth Mama product is guaranteed so please return it where you purchased it, and please note the ingredients as you shop for other products.
For more than just butts! After lathering up two children and a husband in sunscreen I totally forgot myself and burnt my neck and shoulders. It was so painful! I rubbed some of this in right after and the next morning and it helped so much...like it didn't even peel!
If you are having any problems down town don't hesitate to buy this, the relief is AMAZING and quick. Partner it up with the spray and you're in heaven. I am going to have this stuff on reserve.
This balm has provided soothing relief to my very tender lady parts, which are swollen and stitched up. I started buying this for friends after a painful recovery with my first, and I am so thankful to have it for myself this time around!
I suffered a 4th degree tear and then infected stitches with the birth of my daughter and this balm was recommended to me by a veteran mom of 3. All I can say is this stuff is AMAZING! I was in agony and tried everything to find relief, this product is truly a gem and I will absolutely recommend as part of a post partum regimen for episiotomy/tear care.
I would give this 5 stars if I wasn't afraid I'd have to order a second jar to last my whole recovery. Feel as if I'm using as sparingly as possible, but some people don't have a choice how often they need it shortly after giving birth. On the plus side, there is nothing bad I can say about the actual product and I'm happy I found it before giving birth knowing I wouldn't be provided with witch hazel pads by a hospital this time.
