Signs of Spring


The Thymes is likely best known for their fragrant, elegantly packaged bath and body products (they also offer candles and other home products); and they recently launched a luxurious line for little ones, the Sweetleaf Baby Collection. This collection is thoughtfully composed inside and out; the products are mild and safe for newborn skin, Paraben-free, infused with organic lavender, chamomile, aloe vera, and protective vitamin E, and come in packaging so lovely that you'll not want to discard the boxes.

We especially love the creamy richness of the bar soap set (shown; two 3.5 oz bars for $18) and diaper balm (4.25 oz for $18). Right out of the packaging the soap fragrance initially seemed a bit intense, but in the bath the rich, creamy lather rendered just a hint of floral that made us think that spring might just be around the corner. The diaper balm is unscented and provides a smooth, protective salve composed of zinc oxide, shea butter, cocoa butter & beeswax.
