An all-natural balm that'll soothe those oh-so-sensitive parts.

No one said motherhood was a walk in the park, but dealing with cracked, blistered nipples? Seriously, ouch. When nursing and pumping starts to take a toll, thousands of moms have found salvation in this "miracle balm" (their words). It's made of all-natural ingredients—which is why you'll likely find little pearl-like bits in your balm. Plant butters solidify when cold, but those flecks quickly melt in your fingers for a smooth application.

  • It's ingestion-safe for baby, so you don't have to worry about wiping it off before nursing
  • Talk about a treat for your sore spots—thanks to the cocoa butter, this balm actually smells like chocolate!
