Winter Holiday Tallow Skin Care Gift Guide ver. 1.2

The holidays can be very stressful whether you make gifts for your family or you prefer to purchase from small handcrafter businesses or big box stores. To make choosing the perfect Tallowed Touch tallow products easier I have created this Mother Makings Tallow Skin Care Gift Guide for you! 

If this is your first time hearing about our Tallowed Touch tallow products then check out my Series – Tallow is Awesome!

There you will learn more about how I was introduced to tallow, what it is and it’s benefits, what Tallowed Touch is and 10+ Ways to Use Tallow.

This guide was inspired by what I do when someone visits me at a local market – I always like to chat with my potential customers to see what it is that they need. 

Perhaps, they have a dry skin condition like eczema or perhaps they are looking for a tallow skin care product for their baby or maybe they just need a good long-lasting lip balm.

All of our Tallowed Touch Tallow Balms and Tallow Lip Balms (both Regular and Infused) are nourishing, long-lasting, soothing and emollient but there are still particular products that I recommend for certain conditions, ages and specifically for mothers.

This Mother Makings Winter Holiday Tallow Skin Care Gift Guide ver. 1.2 is my updated attempt to share my knowledge about my products in the hopes that you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for this holiday season.

Customers Feedback

Review Graphic: The Naked Tallow Balm already feels SO good on my skin that I'm back to order another batch! Fast shipping and adorable packaging. I admire the owner of this shop along with her writing, products, and her mission to help others. Thank you! - Melissa
Review Graphic: WOW...I am in love with Sweet Earth Tallow Balm for my dry and sensitive hands. I just ordered two more ; ) I am an artist, I love to cook, and winter's cold--or even any season--is not a friend to my hands. However, this product keeps my hands so happy and my ordinarily dry and chapped hands are repaired by using this product. It is not greasy; I can get right into my work without a problem after using the product. Thank you MotherMakings for a great product! - Cate
Review Graphic: My hands need extra help during winter and this product works wonders. It’s absorbed easily and nurtures the skin long after it’s applied. - Linda
Review Graphic:This is great stuff for those of us out here in Wyoming where it's so dry. Thanks for making this wonderful product that works for those of us with sensitivities to fragrance and additives. This stuff really works! and I love how smooth it goes on and the container is also very bueno! Thanks so much! - Cate
Review Graphic: This is the best lip balm ever...the ginger is subtle but there and no allergic reactions to my sensitive skin! This is my second purchase of this and I will be getting more in the future. Thank you MotherMakings for making such a wonderful product! - Cate
Review Graphic: This was love at first touch. I lightly rubbed your lavender rose tallow balm along the raw, chapped edges of my nose, and I was strongly soothed and moved by the scent and feel. With the one-of-a-kind quality of rose petal-infused tallow coupled with the silky smooth texture, I can tell this balm was lovingly hand-crafted. Thank you! - Robyn
Review Graphic: Smells divine , and it apples nicely , I will definitely be buying again - Lil
