Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".
We burned the cord with two beeswax candles with both of our previous babies and intend to do the same with this one.
The burning cauterizes the umbilicus and is really a lovely ceremony. The heat of the candle is meant to restore chi to the baby as well.
You must hold the cord taut with two hands and it can take a little while for the candles to completely burn through and separate the cord.
