I am completely obsessed with skin care and all natural products at that. I love to make my own scrubs and butters. My babies included too.
I am so hesitant to buy products off the shelf. They claim to be natural but the ingredients list is still full of preservatives. I try to stick to if I can’t eat it I don’t use it on my skin. I used coconut oil and olive oil for their skincare exclusively until they were six months old then I began to make my own mild scents.
I am loving grapeseed oil. I use it as a nightly moisturizer on my face. Now that my youngest son is older I can use a grapeseed oil mix that I poe’d up.
POE UP shawty!
The smell is subtle and baby like. Everyone always says they smell like babies…go figure..
It smells heavenly. Very fresh and earthy too. A clean smell as Daddy says.
My Dos got a head to toe rub down with some extra love tonight using the baby oil I made. We literally have a massage routine starting with his limbs moving onward and down. Massages and stretches are very soothing for babies. Dad bathed Sage tonight so his rub down I’m sure was rather quick, if at all lol. I rub them down for about ten minutes at night if I’m not too tired.
It always puts them right to sleep.
Try it Mamas!
The ingredients are really simple….
All equal parts of oils then add drops of oil to your scent liking I used:
1/3 Coconut oil (melted)
1/3 Grapeseed oil
1/3 Olive oil
1/4 Jojoba oil
Vitamin E capsule
5 drops of lemongrass oil
*****lemongrass oil is very strong and can overpower your other scents so I do one drop at a time until satisfied)
5drops of sandalwood oil
Shake well together.
Adjust the amounts of essential oils to your scent liking.
Apply on wet or damp skin. Wet is the key. I rub them down while wet and let them air dry.
***** PLEASE do a patch test on your baby before trying this recipe. Some babies skin may still be sensitive after 6 months however none of these oils are harmful if used.*****
