You’ve been preparing for motherhood for as long as you can remember and dreamed about holding your new baby as you gaze into her eyes. The bond between a mother and her child is one of the most precious and amazing gifts in the world. But what if that bond doesn’t come as easily as you anticipated? In some cases the art of bonding with your child takes work and time, especially if your child has special needs. Kelly Johnson, founder of Parker Time Potions, dealt with this very personal and emotional issue with her autistic son Parker. Johnson found time spend together with baby massage was one way they were able to bond and spend quality time together. When chemical free versions were hard to find, she developed her own range of massage oils with a blend of sunflower oil, jojoba oil, calendula oil, and Vitamin E. Parker Time Potions are all natural massage oils formulated to help nurture the parent and child bond, allowing parents to slow down and savor the precious time spent with their child. Along with bonding, baby and child massage improves long-range emotional, physical, and cognitive development in children.
Kelly’s mission through Parker Time Potions is to offer parents of all babies the opportunity to bond with their little ones. To accomplish this, Parker Time Potions donates a portion of the proceeds to autism research in order to continue learning more about how to communicate and bond with autistic children. In fact, during the month of April, Parker Time Potions will donate 30% of each purchase to an autism related cause determined by each customer (must be a 501 3C and provide autism relates services or research to children or adults on the spectrum).
Parker Time Potions come in 3 formulas: Original, Play & Relax. Each potion leaves delicate skin soft and smooth and helps improve overall moisture for your child’s skin Johnson said that due to the numerous positive effects massage has for autistic kids, she has decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from Parker Time Potions to autism research in order to continue learning more about how to communicate and bond with autistic children.
