One of our favorite routines with our kids is giving them little gentle baby massages after bath time and when they’re skin is in need of a good moisturizing. We use a homemade gentle baby cream from head to tow helping soothe and comfort, especially in the dry and colder months. Beyond the wonderful healthy skin benefits, this blend just smells so good. It is a favorite to diffuse in the nursery and one I used throughout my whole pregnancy. You could also make a nice linen spray with this oil blend and give you little one’s bedding a light spray before nap time.
Gentle Baby Oil Blend contains the oils from the following plants: lavender, geranium, roman chamomile, rosewood, jasmine, palmarosa, rose, bergamot, ylang ylang, and lemon. It is both soothing and calming, and is gentle enough for little bodies.
Our Gentle Baby Cream:
With a hand mixer, whip 1/2 cup of organic coconut oil and 1/4 cup of shea butter until smooth. Add 30 drops of Gentle Baby Oil Blend (you can add a few drops of lavender to this if you are wanting to help calm your uterus down) to the whipped oil mixture and blend in. Melt one teaspoon of organic bees wax pellets in a mason jar. You can do this using a double boiler method on the stove. Once the bees wax is melted, and stir oils mixture into the wax until fully incorporated. Store in a cool place overnight to let set. This mixture will harden a little bit creating a soothing yet very soft body balm for your little love.
