Mama & Baby’s Massage Oil


Selecting the best products and ingredients for skincare can be daunting, and baby’s skin is even more delicate and sensitive than our own.  The lists of ingredients on baby care products are often a mile-long and contain hard-to-read and unrecognizable ingredient names. Many commercial baby care products even include chemicals that may have harmful side effects. No thanks!

This soothing and gentle massage oil is perfect for nurturing mama’s and baby’s sensitive skin. Apply after bathing for massages, cradle cap, or anytime that skin feels dry. You can also pour a small amount into bathwater for a luxurious pampering bath.

Fill a glass jar ¼ - ½ full with herbs, then fill to the top with Sunflower or Sweet Almond oil.  Screw a tight-fitting lid onto the jar, shake well, and place in a warm windowsill to infuse. Shake the jar daily or as often as you remember.  After 4-6 weeks, strain the herbs out using cheesecloth or muslin.  Add Vitamin E Oil to the infusion, then pour into glass jars.
