Essential Oils for Baby #DIY #naturalparenting - DontMesswithMama.com

I didn’t start using essential oils on my kids until my youngest son was 18 months old. But you can bet I wish I had them. I used to spend a fortune on organic cleaning and baby products. I had no idea that many of those baby products could be made for a fraction of what I used to pay.

That’s why I’m going to show you how to use essential oils to make your own baby products. So you can save money and feel great about making your own non-toxic products for way less than what you’d pay for in the stores. And read my companion post on Essential Oils for Kids (2 years and up).

Gentle Babies Book

Before we dive into how to make your own DIY baby products, I want to introduce a fantastic book. Gentle Babies book is a complete guide on how to use essential oils for babies and kids.

It’s filled with essential oils tips for pregnancy, childbirth, infants and young children. I’ve read it and absolutely loved it. It’s a must-have for both first-time and seasoned parents.

Okay, now on to my favorite essential oil uses for little ones.

Essential Oils for Babies

1. All-purpose cleaner for diaper changing tables & pails

Use Thieves Household Cleaner or add a few drops of Thieves in a small spray bottle with water and spray areas to disinfect and kill germs.

2. Baby oil

Mix 2 tbsp of a carrier oil (coconut oil or sweet almond works well) with 3-4 drops of Lavender or Gentle Baby. Store in an airtight container and use as needed.

3. Baby powder

Mix 2 tbsp of cornstarch with a few drops of Lavender or Gentle Baby. Stir together and store in an airtight container to use as needed.

4. Baby wipes

I’ve got an easy tutorial to make your own baby wipes – both disposable and reusable – with Lavender oil.

5. Insect bite relief

Apply 1 drop of Purification to the bite. You can also make your own bug repellant with Purification or apply 1-2 drops on the feet to prevent bug bites.

6. Massage oil

A baby massage is great way to bond with baby. Apply 1 drop of Peace & Calming, Lavender, or Gentle Baby 1:1 with a carrier oil and massage baby’s back, tummy, legs, arms and feet.
