    I love using the products as they are all natural and healthy for my family,esp the children. The fragrances are nice,warm and just much safe the all the chemical filled products out there!!

  2. kate says:

    What an AwEsOmE give AWAY!! Thank U! We choose all natural products so we can take care of ourselves and the environment too!!:D
    LOVE the new mommas ( hello? Push?? So rockin’- wish I woulda known sooner to have for our 5th babies birth at home!) products too- what GReat gift ideas!!

  3. Simone says:

    For me – rose toner and herbal clay cleanser and one of the lovely soaps. For baby – baby powder, healing skin ointment. Looking forward to trying out the baby balm soon too!

  4. Mary says:

    I do my best to choose natural products because there’s so much I can’t control about what goes in and on my body and my baby’s… I can control our “lotions and potions”, our food, and the environment in our little abode. Better for me and baby! And better for the environment.

  5. adrianne says:

    I choose natural products everywhere i can because it is important to me to do everything i can to limit exposure to chemicals, toxins and unnecessary ingredients.

  6. Benny says:

    WhOoOP! oh Annointment giveaway, you’ve made my day. The body butter smells like delicious chocolate smoothness and it gave my preggo and now non-preggo belly a glorious sheen of awesomeness. *fave*

  7. Benny says:

    Commented on Facebook about the giveaway and linked to the blog.. ;D Think that about covers it, hmm?

    Cheers ladies.. and thanks for spreading the handmade, natural products love.

  8. maddie says:

    I like the sound of the healing skin ointment and I really dig the packaging – this would make a beautiful baby shower gift – I’m hoping to win this for a friend who’s expecting in January 🙂

  9. ThisOldPMQ says:

    Love this stuff. The soap is the BOMB for taking off makeup (cleanly, the first time, not having to scrub and scrub at mascara!) and shaving as well as being a great all over cleanser.
    Plus, the sherpa wipes are great for helping the schmutz come off…and I hear the lady who makes them is terrific. 😉

  10. Gillian says:

    My favorite Anointment product is… do I have to chose just one? Om Shanti soap is my long standing absolute favorite scent, the Rose Toner is something I use every single day, the Baby Balm is my #1 favorite baby product.

    I refuse to just give one answer to this question! 🙂

  11. Gillian says:

    One more time, because I just love this giveaway, if I was to ever get pregnant again (unlikely!), Belly Butter would be the first thing I buy. Thanks to all to brought this giveaway to OMHG!

  12. Ami says:

    I fell in love with anointment after using their push cream after having my baby. I am a loyal fan now. I only use natural products for myself and my family… why take any chances not knowing all the chemicals that could be lurking??

  13. Laura Fletcher says:

    I love Anointment’s belly butter! I used it while pregnant with my son and thought it was great! Left my belly soft and moisturized, no stretch marks and no itchiness from stretched skin! Now I gift it to all my pregnant friends!

  14. April says:

    I love all this feedback as much as I love making every single one of these products. They are all a labour of love.

    Push…I wish I could shout from the rooftops how nice it is for post-partum soreness…and those pesky “h” words that sometimes don’t go away as soon as you’d like after birth!

    My hands down favourite product (to make and to use) is the Belly Butter, who can resist the chocolate scent? Not I.

  15. Anna says:

    Although I have never tried Anointment (I love the name btw- flattery counts right?) My daughter Elly only gets the best stuff for her skin. No invasive soaps or chemicals. We would LOVE to try these products in our household!

  16. trixx says:

    I’d love to try their herbal clay cleanser as I have super oily skin. I try to buy natural homemade skincare products for my family since it has less junky ingredients.

  17. Tanya says:

    I have sensitive skin and when my daughter was born, we had a lot of problems with her skin so I had to be very careful of what I used. Now I have a new baby and expect the same issues so hopefully we can avoid them this time around!

  18. I choose natural products because my skin and my system does not tolerate chemicals. After years of working in the alternative health field I also know way too much about most standard products and how detrimental they are to our health and well being.
    Thank you for giving people alternatives to the toxic products that are out there.
    Keep up the good work!

  19. Kelly K. says:

    Oh my gosh…I would have loved some of this post partum. I had no idea how sore I would be down there and for how long. The push perenium/bottom balm is on my list of must have’s next time around!!!
