I love sharing clean and toxin-free products with you guys, and there are few things that excite me more than discovering amazing new brands to add to the Nourished Life collection! One such brand is Willow by the Sea, an Australian made and owned, 100% certified organic range of beautiful, botanical baby and pregnancy care products. Founded by a local Newcastle-based husband and wife duo, Luke and Corina, Willow by the Sea came to be following the birth of their own beautiful daughter, Willow...
As new parents, Luke and Corina found it almost impossible to find baby skin care products that were free of additives, fillers and nasty ingredients. Inspired by their own search, the pair decided to create their own range of certified organic skin care products for babies and mums-to-be. Named after their daughter and the seaside town in which they're raising her, Willow by the Sea was born.
All Willow by the Sea products are made in Australia in small batches and are never tested on animals (in fact, they're patch tested and used on Willow herself to confirm they're safe for use on delicate baby skin!) All of the brand's outer packaging is made from 100% recycled and recyclable post-consumer waste, their glass bottles are recyclable and reusable and their Baby Bath Tea is packaged in biodegradable cellulose bags. Those are just some of the reasons why I love this brand! To help you decide which products are right for you, your baby or to give as beautiful baby shower gifts, I've put together this quick guide to the Willow by the Sea range.

This oil can also be massaged into baby's scalp to help prevent cradle cap.
