Babies and Essential Oils

Let's talk about babies and using essential oils.   There are many benefits of using oils on our little ones.   

Did you know that talc is found in most baby powders and in known as being an irritant to the lungs.
Or that many baby products use synthetic fragrances that can cause neurological, respiratory or even eye damage.

You can make safe, all natural baby products using essential oils that are safe, gentle and a fraction of the cost!!!!

I used many many many products made with oils after Colton was born.  Not only was his skin healthier, but the oils cleared up anything he had faster than any OTC product.


  • To clean baby toys use 2 drops of lemon essential oil and 4 ounces of white vinegar in a glass spray bottle.  Fill remaining with water and clean.  
  • Colic: Apply 1-2 drops of digestion blend on baby's feet
  • Crying or overly tired baby: 1 drop of lavender or calming blend under their nose and forehead
  • You can add any scent to a cotton ball and place in children's drawers for a sweet scent
  • Soothing bath:  2-4 drops of roman chamomile or calming blend in the tub
  • Sore gums: mix 1-2 drops of roman chamomile, white fir, or clove essential oil with fractionated coconut oil and massage into babies gums.  


Diaper Rash Blend
1/2 cup fractionated coconut oil
15 drops melaleuca essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
15 drops frankincense essential oil

In a small glass spray bottle mix all the above together.  Spray a thin layer directly on the diaper rash area and reapply as needed.

(I personally did this and with one spray GONE)

Calming Colic Blend
3 drops digestion blend essential oil
2 drops ginger essential oil
1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil

Mix together the above oils and massage over the tummy and lower back.  Repeat 3-5 times a day.

Cradle Cap Moisturizer
1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
3 drops lavender essential oil

Mix the oils together in the palms of your hands and rub on the baby's scalp.  Add cocoa butter if additional softening is needed.  

Winter Cheeks Balm
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoon beeswax
20 drops lavender essential oil

IN a small mason jar mix the ingredients together, and lower the jar into a warm saucepan partially filled with water.  On low heat melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and olive oil together stirring every few minutes.  After the wax is completely melted remove from the heat and add lavender.  Mix together and cool until hardened.  Rub the balm over reddened cheeks to ease and protect.  

Baby Stain Remover
8 ounces of water
2 tablespoon borax
20 drops lemon essential oil

Add borax and oils to a spray bottle.  Add water and shake thoroughly.  Spray directly on stain and wash.

These are just some of the most common things I seem to get asked for.  There are some great recipes here and they all work wonders.
