Soothing baby massage oil has been specially blended for use on babies from birth. Soothing baby massage oil combines the essential oils of lavender and chamomile in the base oils of apricot, calendula and st johns wort. Soothing baby massage oil is relaxing, soothing, rejuvenating and harmonising. Its antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties make it excellent for use on dry, sensitive and itchy skin. Baby massage is a wonderful way of increasing the maternal bond between parent and baby.
Recommended use: Soothing Baby massage oil is suitable for direct application on the skin. We would recommend that (using a cotton bud) you apply a tiny amount of oil on the inside of the babies arm (near the elbow) and cover it with a plaster. Leave it for 24 hours and remove the plaster. If there are signs of a reaction then either dilute the blend further or try another blend. If there are no signs of a reaction then you can feel confident that it can be used safely on the baby. Soothing baby massage oil can be used daily if required to help keep babies skin healthy. It is best applied in the evening as the properties of the blend will help to relax the baby and help to aid a restful nights sleep. For lots of useful information, tips and methods of baby massage we would recommend you purchase The Baby Book. Soothing baby massage oil is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitising.
