DIY magic baby oil (cloth diaper friendly)

I recently ordered the Gentle Baby essential oil blend after reading about it in my EO pocket reference. Olivia had a pretty gnarly drool rash on her chin the day it arrived in the mail. I applied 1 drop mixed with 1 drop of coconut oil to the area before I put her down for bed because the pocket reference said that it was good to use on rashes, and I swear to you, the next morning her rash was completely gone.

After witnessing her rash get better literally overnight, I decided to put it in a rollerball so I could just swipe it wherever I needed it instead of worrying about diluting it every time I wanted to use it.

You Will Need:

  • 10 mL glass rollerball, preferably dark glass to preserve oil potency
  • YL Gentle Baby essential oil blend
  • YL Lavender essential oil (optional since lavender is in GB)
  • cold pressed, organic coconut oil

Before I tell you how I concocted this magic diaper potion that can be used on so more than just baby bums, I want to introduce you to the oils you’ll be working with.

Lavender – antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, relaxing. (can go on skin alone)
Gentle Baby – a blend of coriander, lavender, lemon, and a handful of flowers like jasmine, rose, and geranium. (needs to be diluted 50/50 with a carrier oil) Good for relaxing pregnant mamas, improving stretch marks, chapped skin, and cranky babies.

Directions:

  1. Pull the roller ball off of the top of the vial
  2. Add 20 drops Gentle Baby + 10 drops lavender
  3. Top off with coconut oil
  4. Pop roller ball back on the top of the vial
  5. Apply to chapped skin anywhere on the body (or on the back of neck/bottoms of feet before bed) and enjoy the soothing properties of the oils along with the glorious scent.

    1. If you can order some through her, I highly recommend it. I will forever repurchase this for the scent alone. I diffuse it at night in the girls’ room if they’re really fussy and I always put some on their butts after their bath at night because 1. the diaper rash protection 2. the calming effect. LOVE LOVE LOVE
