Eco warrior baby supplies gorgeous, eco friendly, organic baby products. Mama, Hope, tells us the story behind the brand:
I was inspired to create the brand after having my first child Ezra, the original 'eco warrior baby!' At a time when all eyes are on baby us mamas need to feel loved, supported and we hope our products make all our customers feel that way. Families are at the heart of everything we do!
We are passionate about creating stylish eco friendly, organic products whether they're a gift for yourself or for someone else.
What organic really means - In its simplest terms, organic cotton is cotton which is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilisers. Concern has grown over the years that residue from these chemicals may then be left on the cotton clothing we are swaddling out children in, especially as babies skin is much more porous than an adults. Organic means safer working environments for farmers and their families, reduction in risk to your baby through residual chemicals and less water contamination.

How to de-stress in under 10 minutes
November 16, 2016
Stress is extremely common. Most people experience stress at some point in their life. The stress response happens when we perceive there to be some kind of challenge or threat we have to face. The response prepares your body to do one of two things: confront the threat or run away from it. This is generally useful and improves our ability to perform in challenging situations, the problem comes when we face what we perceive as constant overwhelming threats or when we are not challenged at all.
In some cases, lack of stress can mean you are under-stimulated whereas if you are feeling stressed for long periods of time, it can begin to negatively affect your health ranging from headaches, stroke, depression, heart problems, skin problems, anxiety, stomach problems and others.

IN A NUTSHELL...
Methyl Sulphonyl Methane is the full name to describe sulphur. Don't be put off by the name as it's also known as "The Beauty Mineral" (much better) for its ability to support collagen production, promote circulation and decrease inflammation.
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
The Beauty Mineral originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton release sulphur compounds into seawater. It then escapes into the atmosphere where it reacts with the ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create MSM, where it then falls to the earth with the rain. It is then collected and concentrated in plants. Naturally derived during the earth's rain cycle, it's present in many natural unprocessed foods, but quickly lost during the cooking process.

We are thrilled to include the wonderful Positivitea in our May mamaME Box. That's the founder, Ellie Wharton, in the photo above sitting amongst some breathtaking tea plantations. By harnessing the healing power of herbs each tea within the Positivitea range has been specifically blended to help the smooth running of the organs associated with a particular chakra or counteract the ailments associated with its imbalance- chakras are the energy centres of the body. For thousand of years they have been used as spiritual guidelines for wellbeing and are said to be directly connected to the health of the physical body and mind. It is believed that when they are balanced you feel positive, healthy and happy. In the May mamaME Box you will find CONNECT Positivitea - Chamomile helps promote sleep and lavender is often recommended to treat anxiety. Honeybush is soothing and relaxing and has been found to counter headaches, irritability and tension. We think this is just perfect for busy, tired mamas and will help you to relax and get the most out of the sleep those babes allow!
Just check out some of the reported health benefits of tea:
