EcoMom: Review + Giveaway {CLOSED}

I’ve partnered with the great people over at EcoMom again to bring you another product review + giveaway! They generously sent me the Earth Mama-Angel Baby Organics Pregnancy Pampering Kit. I was so excited to receive it as with my previous pregnancy I rarely indulged in special products made just for expecting mamas. 
The Review
The kit includes:
Happy Feet Soak
I tried the body butter first. It’s supposed to encourage elasticity in itchy expanding skin. It has a light lemony scent which wasn’t too offensive to my sensitive nose. It also goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave a waxy residue behind like other body butter products I’ve used before. 
At about 7 weeks pregnant I started to feel nauseated and shortly thereafter came the heartburn (quite by surprise). I decided to try the tea sampler. It has teas for all stages of pregnancy. I tried the morning wellness tea first and although I don’t typically like spearmint it was very soothing to my queasy stomach. I also tried the heartburn tea which did seem to calm it a bit. They both worked well as I was drinking them, but I think both my nausea and heartburn were a bit too strong for the tea to have a lasting effect. 
I tried the natural stretch oil alternately to the body butter. It has a similar scent and also was non-greasy and quickly absorbing. It’s also supposed to be good for use in preparation for labor + delivery. 
I haven’t yet tried the other products as they’re formulated for some of the aches + pains of mid to late pregnancy that I have yet to experience. Based on my success with the other products, I’m sure they will come in handy. I’ll keep you posted!

    Hmmm… If I won, I would probably spend it on some of the delicious-looking washes made for babies! My kids tend to have sensitive skin.
