We believe natural ingredients are the best and most effective treatments for baby colic. Below are the ingredients used in Willby’s Wind and Colic Mix as well as a description of how they work to ultimately relieve colic symptoms.
Botanic name: Anethum graveolens as Dill Water BPC 1973
Serves to expel wind and pains of colic. It also helps to prevent gas formation and is a natural relaxant.
With multiple uses from medicinal purposes to cooking, dill oil is truly a versatile herb. Often used as a flavour enhancer in foods, dill oil is also commonly used in natural remedies to support digestion and overall gastrointestinal health while providing important antioxidants to the body. Dill oil is used in our mix to relieve the pains of colic by preventing the formation of gas pockets in the baby’s digestive system whilst also functioning as a natural relaxant.
Did you know: Romans typically applied dill oil before battle because of its calming properties that reduce nervousness and stress.
Botanic name: limonum as Sodium Citrate BP
Prevents the coagulation of milk into curds, reduces acidity and helps the digestive process by breaking up large gas bubbles.
Lemon juice is one of the most valuable of all fruits for preserving health. Lemon possesses immense health benefits ranging from its antibacterial and antiviral properties to its immune boosting abilities. Being rich in vitamins, lemon juice (sodium citrate) is commonly used to treat infant digestive complaints. In our mix, lemon juice is an essential ingredient which helps the digestive process in babies by breaking down pockets of gas in the colon.
Belladonna leaf tincture (British Pharmacopeia)
Botanic name: Belladonna leaf tincture BP
A medical herb that has been used in pharmacy for centuries to relieve muscle spasm and reduce stomach acidity.
Belladonna is an ancient herbal medicine; used as a pain reliever, muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory. Belladonna in the past has been perceived as dangerous due to the poisonous properties of its berries . Whilst it is true that the berries of the belladonna plant are poisonous, the berries are not used in medicine. Our mix uses extracted medicinal alkaloids from the leaves of the belladonna plant which is perfectly safe for your baby when given in appropriate doses. Our mix uses an extremely conservative dose, tailored to your baby’s age and weight, overseen by a pharmacist and naturopath. In over 20 years of making the mix, there has never been one case of negative side-effects from our mix.
