Mom's Stuff

I always have plans of posting more frequently, but then maybe the silence means I'm getting lots finished and ready to share? ;)  I did want to have a little show and tell, though.  Remember how those were always the best days at school?  We'd bring our favorite little treasure to share with (and brag a little) to our friends and beloved teacher.
When Ryan and I were first married, we were at my parent's house when my sister's friend, Zina, was sharing with us something she called "Mom's Stuff".  Her mom wasn't an apothecary by trade.  "Mom", or Lee, is an artist, married to a potter, both occupations requiring lots of hands-on and hand-washing.  Lee came up with Mom's Stuff because the purchased lotions and salves just weren't cutting it for their cracked hands.  They were too watered down and full of too many artificial chemicals.
This is our container that has lasted us for a few years.  (Seriously, it's like a bottomless container.) My kid's have come to know when they have any mystery rash, bumps, or general skin complaint, I will tell them to put on Mom's Stuff.  It's a heal-all type of salve.  I ran into Lee last year when she was selling Mom's Stuff at a local bizarre in Utah and she told me that a woman approached her about using Mom's Stuff after her breast cancer treatments.  The prescribed lotion/salve wasn't helping and she was in a lot of pain.  She began using it regularly and when she went in for another treatment, the technician couldn't believe what she saw.  Her skin was still very pink, but it looked so much better than the blackened or dark red skin she was used to seeing on patients.
Cracked heels from the summer sandal wearing?  Extra dry elbows in need of TLC?  Eczema that won't respond to anything?  Pesky diaper rash?  Give Mom's Stuff a try.  What's in Mom's Stuff that makes it work so well?!  The very best nature has to offer: Beeswax (hooray!), Olive Oil, Piñon Pine Pitch, Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lanolin, Comfrey, Tea Tree Oil, Rosemary Oil, Neem Oil, and Lavender Oil.  11 found-in-nature-all-natural ingredients that you can pronounce, naturally antibacterial and antifungal.  For now they just offer Mom's Stuff Salve, but I have it on good authority that they are going to be adding some new products to their line soon!
There's the regular plastic 4 oz container, the glass 4 oz container, and the 1.5 travel size that should go everywhere with you.  
 Are they paying me to write this? 
I just like to share a good thing with friends.  Bragging just a bit that I know these good people.  Plus the black and white bee packaging.  Couldn't get any better.  ;) Oh!  And they're offering my favorite No Big Dill readers a discount good through Friday!  Use code: NOBIGDILL20 to get 20% off your order of Mom's Stuff. Happy Monday!


  1. This post has perfect timing! I have some pesty eczema on my toe and nothing is working on it! The salve sounds like the perfect thing to try. And of course with four children there's always some sort of skin something going on 😉 ! Thanks Katy! I'm going to order some right now.

  2. I know this artist (love her!) and potter... Happy to give this a try and support them.


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
