Who’s Your Mama?
If you live in Ithaca and you have young kids, you’ve shopped at Mama Goose. Or you should have. Because they have a great selection of shoes and clothes, some gently used, along with baby stuff, from carriers to swings to cribs to cloth diapers to those bouncy chair things.
And now they have Avital’s balms, too. Yes indeed. Next time you stop in to Mama Goose Ithaca, check out the Avital’s display: Lotion Bars, All Purpose Balm (great for drool rash!), and Unscented Ithaca Body Butter are all there to keep you and your littles marvelously moisturized. Lips a little dry? No problem! They have boxes of Rosemary-Mint and Chai Spice Lip Balm, too.
My balms are all luscious, with real, local beeswax, mango, shea, and cocoa butters, argan oil, avocado oil… Amazing stuff. The ingredients are all on the labels. And I do hope you’ll read the labels, because most also have a bee fact on them!
As if that’s not enough, there’s some fizzy fun, too: Lavender Bath Fizzies and Honey & Oatmeal Fizzies make bath time fun, whether you’re 3 or 103. They’re filled with goodness to soften the water, so that it feels like silk. A bit of mango and cocoa butter keeps tender skin from drying out, honey hydrates, and lovely essential oils help everyone relax.
The Honey & Oatmeal Bath Fizzies are especially nice for winter dry skin: I take my own raw honey (yes, collected by my very own bees either in Ithaca or Lansing) and real oatmeal, and combine it with lavender and lemongrass essential oils.
How yummy is that? I’m betting your kids would love to watch it plop and fizz in the tub! Stop on down–they’re right next to the State Street Diner.
