With my reinterpretation of the classic gift basket, I hope to reach out to you with a sense of closeness and small subtleties. I think everyone loves to get a bouquet, but in the birthdays you often end up with many bouquets and therefore a birth basket can be a really great alternative to a new family.
Read on to learn more about some of the beautiful things we have included.
Raw rose quartz
Rose quartz is known to be a love stone that provides a soothing energy that quietly removes all negativity from the body. The loving energy can create better balance and sleep harmony, so I recommend placing the stone in the bedroom. The rose quartz stones Paradés delivers in the baskets are extracted from Bahia in Brazil and are quite deliberately chosen raw and unpolished, as they are most beautiful.
Nourishing oils from Urtegaarden
Rosehip seed oil - the care basket
Urtegaarden's cold-pressed, organic rosehip seed oil is a 100% natural and pure vegetable oil without additives. The oil can be used directly on the skin and in the hair and is perfect to massage into the skin using the Guasha stone.
Rosehip seed oil is an obvious choice for the care of the face, eye area and lips. Organic rosehip seed oil works, i.a. due to the high content of the essential omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid and retinoic acid, which is a type A vitamin A, regenerating, firming, healing and cell renewal.
Ingredients: 100% organic rosehip seed oil. Made by cold pressing seeds from organic rose hips (Rosa canina).
Organic baby oil
The organic baby oil is rich in essential fatty acids that care for the skin and leave it naturally soft without being greasy. The skin is effectively protected from drying out and kept supple and elastic. Distributed on slightly moist skin and is extremely suitable for massaging both mother and baby.

Urtegaarden's baby ointment containing Lanolin
Dry and nourishing ointment rich in essential fatty acids that care for the skin and leave it soft. The ointment forms a protective film that protects against external influences. So both a red butt and irritated skin can be prevented and relieved.
The skin's natural moisture level is maintained and the skin barrier is strengthened. In addition to being good for dry and sensitive skin, it can also be used for sore nipples and relieve wounds and cracks.

Local honey from Bistad
I knew that honey should be part of the baskets and I am very happy to have entered into a partnership with the social economic company Bistad, which has hives around East Jutland. Bistad was started from the idea of combining social work with beekeeping and also creating a honey without the use of pesticides.

Honey has many benefits besides the taste. It is rich in antioxidants and its anti-inflammatory properties can of help mild eczema, rosacea and psoriasis-prone skin. It can also heal tears and wounds and has a bactericidal effect due to the low water content of honey and the organic acids that inhibit and kill bacteria.
At the same time, honey can help with colds. Just do not heat the honey above 40 degrees as it destroys the enzymes in the honey that inhibit and kill bacteria. Let the milk or tea stand until the temperature has dropped to 40 degrees, or enjoy a clean teaspoon of honey, let it melt on the tongue and slowly slide down into the sore throat.
In some places you also practice what is called honey massage. You apply a thin layer of liquid honey to the skin, possibly softening some honey with a few drops of boiling water. By massaging and gently dabbing on the skin, all pores are cleansed. Reportedly, it should give a very clean and soft skin afterwards.
Organic and recyclable cotton products
In several of the baskets you can find the softest bamboo washcloths as well as organic and recyclable cotton bandages. The bandages can be used both for light bleeding in the postpartum period and for light incontinence, which many women experience after childbirth. At the same time, they can also be used as pain relief after childbirth by making them wet and putting them in the freezer so that they can be used as ice bandages. Feel free to place a washcloth between your abdomen and the ice bandage and experience a cooling effect after sewing or normal birth soreness.
The products come from Bamboolik - a socially responsible company in the Czech Republic that employs single mothers and mothers with young children who are usually excluded from the labor market as they do not have the opportunity to work full time. The majority of employees work part-time, which also applies to the employees in the sheltered workshops, where the majority of the production takes place and is handled by people on the edge of the labor market. At the same time, Bamboolik is trying to focus on the importance of recyclable products at a time when we still have far too many disposable products that create far too much waste. They have won numerous awards for their social commitment as well as focus on ecology and sustainable principles.
