Oh baby! Explore Essential Oils for Baby and Mom-to-be!

Are you expecting? Or do you know someone who is? You may wonder if using oils during pregnancy or with littles is safe. If you use them wisely and pay attention to the guidelines, you can feel good about using them, and from one mama to another, they can be a lifesaver! I used them throughout mine for aches + pains (surprisingly, black pepper is amazing and marjoram, too), nausea (hello, ginger!), mama acne (purification and melrose) and to keep my immune system strong I used thieves everywhere. I included some of my favorite "little" recipes below, and this presentation gets right to the heart of the matter. xo


I made this baby starter package for a dear friend after she had her new baby. The package included sleepytime foot rub, boo boo spray, thieves spray (to clean all those toys that go straight into the mouth), diaper rash cream (no petroleum products!), lavender essential oil and a "happy mama" roll on for her. All items were natural, organic, and specifically diluted for little bodies. Except for the happy mama roller, that was just for her 😍.

Make this as a gift or for your family. Or maybe DIY isn't your thing? Check out this product line >>>

  • Distilled water
  • 2 oz glass spray bottle

Diaper Rash Cream

Ingredients/Materials

  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops Gentle Baby essential oil blend
  • 5 drops Melrose essential oil blend
  • 3 tbsp of beeswax pellets
  • 3 tbsp shea butter
  • 3 tbsp cold-pressed, organic coconut oil
  • 4 oz glass jar

Using a double boiler (if you don't have one, you can simply set a glass pyrex dish over a sauce pan filled with water), melt the shea butter, beeswax, and coconut oil over medium heat. Do not boil. Once liquefied, remove from the heat and let cool. Add in the essential oils, adn put the cream in the refrigerator to bring it back to a solid state. Before mixing, let it sit out at room temperature to slightly soften. Using an electric mixer, whip it until fluffy. Using a wooden spatula, transfer to a glass jar. 

To apply, rub some in between your palms first to soften and warm, and apply gently to baby as often as needed. Let your babe smell your hands, too. This recipe is full of calming oils.
