Ju-Ju Monkey features new product!

I was recently selected as a tester to try out a new product by Oil Change Aromatherapy - offered exclusively at Ju-Ju Monkey in Allentown.  We received their Mend 01 Formula and tested it out on a weird rash that popped up on our toddler (23 months)! It can be tough as a mom to know the right the products to use for every little irritation, rash, boo-boo, and scrape. This product solves that problem though because it literally helps just about everything!!

These bottles are formulated by hand with careful attention to proper dilution rates for the essential oils included as part of the formula by a certified aromatherapist. They come in a super easy to use spray bottle that is a breeze to apply to even the squirmiest kiddo.

Our toddler's mystery rash was confined to her chest and we were able to snap a few photos to track how well it works. The photos below were taken about 36 hours apart and after only 3 applications. Within an another 24 hours (2 more applications) from the time second photo the rash was completely gone, without a trace of it ever existing. 

After clearing the rash above we have found Mend 01 to be helpful with diaper rash, bug bites and minor scrapes! This stuff is an incredible product to keep within arm's reach that we can confidently recommend!
