C-Mama C-Section Healing Salve - Herbal Remedy In A Jar For Moms Recovering From C-Sections.
Having had both of my children delivered via C-section, in addition to the physical pain such a surgery exacts on the body, one can’t even begin to explain the mental anguish and body issues an unsightly caesarean scar will do to the physique.
It is only recently that I've been introduced to what’s been dubbed as, “The C-section Herbal Remedy in a Jar,” by mothers in my inner circle who’ve had their babies delivered via C-section.
* The C-Section Herbal Remedy in a Jar.
Appropriately named, C-Mama C-Section Healing Salve, this organic, all natural healing salve claims to be specially formulated for giving a woman’s body what it needs to aid in the support and healing of her skin - skin that has been compromised by giving birth via cesarean.
With its organic ingredients, essential amino and fatty acids, as well as its rich infusion of Vitamin C, C-Mama C-section Healing Salve is said to support wound repair and cell regeneration.
The effectiveness of this herbal salve is said to be so powerful, that it possesses the ability to work wonders on old cesarean section scars as well as old stretch marks!
In keeping with all the hype, I wanted to know just what is contained in this herbal remedy that produces such effective results in mothers recovering from C-sections.
* The Ingredients And Why They Are So Effective.
As concerned consumers, what is and what isn’t contained in the products we purchase is extremely vital to our physical, mental, and often emotional well-being.
When it comes down to what we put on our skin, this practice should be formulated as well.
Even more so is this important when you’re looking for natural ways to boost your body’s inbred healing powers.
C-Mama C-section Healing Salve promises to give mothers that extra boost, naturally.
Some of the ingredients listed in this organic, all natural “remedy in a jar” include: calendula, tamanu, sea buckthorn seed, gotu kola, and rosehip oils.
Calendula - Used for medicinal purposes since the 12th century, Calendula has been long known for its healing properties, due to the fact that it contains high amounts of flavonoids - which are plant-based antioxidants that effectively protect the body against free radicals.
In addition to its healing properties, Calendula has been found to have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory affects.
Applied topically, the findings have shown that Calendula speeds healing of wounds since it increases blood flow to the wound.
Tamanu - With its home based in the exotic isles of the South Pacific, Tamanu or Tamanu Oil is extracted by the Tamanu Tree and has been used for centuries by the natives of the Pacific Island for a long list of skin ailments.
Due to the fact that Tamanu or Tamanu Oil possesses a unique and amazing capacity to promote the formation of new tissue, the use of this natural product literally accelerates wound healing as well as the growth of healthy skin
Sea Buckthorn Seed - Effective in improving gastrointestinal health, and widely known for its immunity building properties, Sea Buckthorn Seed has the ability to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and promote tissue regeneration - all of which is vital in the successful healing of a cesarean section surgery site.
Sea Buckthorn Seed also contains high amounts of Linoleic acid which has been found to promote the repair of tissue damage, as well as hydrocarbon which prevents excessive moisture loss and lubricates and softens the skin - perfect for cesarean incisions that tend to harden over time.
Gotu Kola - In addition to its effectiveness in soothing anxiety and treating insomnia, the medicinal herb Gotu Kola is also very successful in healing wounds.
Used for thousands of years in China, Indian and Indonesia, Gotu Kola contains a chemical compound called triterpenoids.
These compounds have been found to:
- Strengthen the skin.
- Boost antioxidants in wounds.
- Increase blood supply to the effected area.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “Based on these findings, gotu kola has been used topically (applied to the skin) for minor burns, psoriasis, prevention of scar formation following surgery, and prevention or reduction of stretch marks.”
Rosehip Oils - Rosehip Oils have been found to aid in the healing and regenerating of the skin, in addition to preventing the formation of unsightly keloid scar tissue - (boy I wish I had known about this after my first C-section) and is helpful in healing other scars and stretch marks.
This amazing oil not only contains fairly good amounts of Vitamin C - which is great for healing - it also contains essential fatty acids such as linolenic and linoleic acid which is vital for speeding up the the healing and regeneration process in the skin.
* What C-Mama C-Section Healing Salve Does Not Contain.
Contrary to the majority of the salves and skincare products available today, this herbal salve contains no phthalates, no parabens, no artificial preservatives, fragrances, or dyes, no Sodium lauryl sulfates (or SLS), nor any 1,4-dioxane.
While the jury is still out on some, many of these commonly used additives have been found to be hazardous to ones health.
When the ingredients of said salve are placed under a microscope, it's easy to see why C-Mama C-Section Healing Salve has become such a huge hit with mother's recovering from C-sections.
In addition to speeding up mom's recovery time, its unique combination of Vitamin C, herbs, and essential amino and fatty acids, are the key to helping mothers reduce and even eliminate the fear of unsightly scarring from a cesarean.
It's no wonder then, that this herbal salve has been aptly labeled "The C-section Herbal Remedy In a Jar."
