Try these natural teething remedies for your fussy baby.

Around 4 to 6 months of age, many babies start teething. This can be a fussy and irritable process for your child. Instead of reaching for a medication, though, you can try some natural remedies.

Chamomile offers soothing relief for your baby's gums. You can apply a tincture of chamomile or use the essential oil. Use one drop of the essential oil in one tablespoon of a carrier oil, such as coconut, and rub it on your baby's sore gums.

Another great natural remedy for a teething baby is clove oil. This product is as effective as benzocaine for causing numbing. The clove oil can be diluted at one drop to one tablespoon of carrier oil.

In addition to the remedies that can be applied to your baby's sensitive gums, you can also try soft silicone or plastic teething rings. Be sure to choose a teething ring or chewy toy that is labeled as BPA-free. You can even put these teething rings into the refrigerator to provide extra relief for your child's sore gums.

iHerb has over 40 Teething Products available for your little one.

Learn how collagen supplements can benefit your skin.

Collagen is one of the most important components of your skin. As a complex protein, it makes up almost 80 percent of your skin's structure, providing elasticity and protection from the elements. At the same time, collagen also retains moisture within the deeper layers of skin.

As you get older, your body naturally produces less of this protein. At some point during the aging process, this loss of collagen causes your skin to become thin, dry and fragile. Facial wrinkles are primarily caused by a lack of collagen.

When you are searching for a quality collagen supplement, try Irwin Naturals’ Liquid Collagen Skin Revitalization. It is strawberry-kiwi flavored and features a full 4,000-milligram dose of collagen to help revitalize your skin.

This product also contains biotin, which is an essential nutrient for healthy skin cells; and horsetail, a nutrient-dense plant and natural source of silica. This antioxidant blend combines super fruits and green tea extract to protect your skin from the damaging effects of chemicals, ultraviolet radiation and air pollution.

Try these tips to become both fit and green.

Part of living a healthy lifestyle includes choosing products that are also healthy for the planet. As you embark on a fitness routine and healthy living changes, consider updating your routines to include products such as BPA-free water bottles.

Bringing your own water bottle when you go on a hike or bike ride helps to keep you hydrated. Instead of spending a lot of money on bottled water, you can simply wash and refill your own. Choosing BPA-free water bottles reduces waste and minimizes the impact of plastics on your body.

You can also choose an eco-friendly detergent for laundering your clothes. These detergents avoid harmful chemical additives that promote algae growth or harm wildlife when they enter the water. They are also better for sensitive skin.

As you make healthy changes, consider investing in environmentally friendly fitness products. For example, you could choose a yoga mat that is made from recyclable materials. Select well-made products that are built to last. You might also re-purpose your old T-shirts into new workout clothes.

Discover the key benefits of omega-3 supplements.

Omega-3 fatty acids include many compounds, such as DHA, EPA and ALA. Each of these fats is essential to the functioning of cells. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fatty fish, nuts and seeds, but many people do not eat enough of these foods in order to get enough of this essential nutrient. In children, omega-3 fatty acids promote the development of the brain.

This is why many pediatricians advise supplementing breastfed babies with DHA or choosing an artificial baby milk formula that contains the fatty acid. DHA also promotes eye development and overall growth in children.

The compounds in omega-3 also benefit adult health. Taking an omega-3 fatty acid supplement helps with joint pain and lowers elevated levels of triglycerides. For a convenient way to supplement your intake of omega-3 fatty acids, try the Coromega supplements.

These packets are more easily absorbed compared to a soft gel capsule. They are easy to take, just requiring a gentle squeeze of the packet. No water is needed, and they are portable. There are doses for both kids and adults.

Read about the many benefits of the sea buckthorn berry.

The sea buckthorn has been used for ages in Europe and Asia for its medicinal and highly nutritious profile. Studies show that the sea buckthorn may promote weight loss by preventing your body from storing excess fats. Weight loss reduces the risk of diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. It can also lower a person's C-reactive protein levels. CRP is a protein associated with inflammation. For this reason, sea buckthorn is linked to reduced levels of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

This berry has a high content of omega fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9. The habitual consumption of these acids helps in lubricating a dry, stagnant bowel, thus increasing regular elimination.

Other studies indicate that the sea buckthorn flowers and leaves are beneficial in treating arthritis, gout, gastrointestinal ulcers and skin rashes induced by infectious diseases like measles. In fact, topical use is known to work as an effective natural exfoliant and skin cleanser that can soothe cuts, burns, and other types of skin lesions.

Pick up a bottle of Sea Buckthron the next time you visit iHerb.
