Newborns, babies and essential oils

Newborns, babies and essential oils

You would have to admit that, newborn babies, above all else, are our most precious assets on this entire earth.  Because of this, it seems only natural that we should treat them as precious and not endanger them with any contaminants or unsafe products.  After all it is important to remember that anything we put onto our skin is absorbed through our body and babies skin is at it's most fragile.

This is why it is important to use essential oils that are pure and safe.  Store bought oils can contain solvents, pesticides, synthetics and other chemicals.  At Essential Beginnings we only use trusted pure and safe essential oils so we know they are safe for our young families.

Always use correctly diluted oils to avoid irritation as babies skin and respiratory systems are very delicate, therefore absorption needs to be at a very low rate.

Some of the more gentle oils that are safe to use on babies include Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Tea Tree, Frankincense, Lemon and Wild Orange. 

At Essential Beginnings our roller blends and products are designed specifically with your baby in mind with optimal dilution rates suitable for babies.  Try our content roller blend on bottoms of tiny little feet, or our teether roller blend around the jawline. Our fizzies bath bombs will calm your little one at bath time and prepare them for bedtime, whilst our beloved balm is ideal for nappy rash.
