What’s in it?
Organic Safflower Oil
When topically applied to the skin, organic safflower oil functons as an emollient trapping moisture in your skin, keeping it hydrated and moisturised. It is naturally high in the Vitamin E antioxidant. A single spoon of safflower oils contains 4.6mg of Vitamin E. When used topically, Vitamin E has powerful effects on the skin. Safflower oil helps maintain the skin's outer protective layer, coating the skin and also enhancing its natural moisture barrier. This helps shield the environmental damage to your skin cells. Regular protection may reduce the risk of visible signs of skin damage like the creation of wrinkles.
Organic Avocado Oil
Rich in protein, lecithin, vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E. It has skin healing properties, absorbs ultraviolet radiation from the sun and is said to be most like the body’s own natural oil. It penetrates easily and deeply and is therefore excellent for treating most skin conditions.
Organic Jojoba Oil
This amazing waxy oil is chemically similar to our own moisturizing sebum; it penetrates well leaving no oily residue. It is composed of esters high in Vitamin E, and is excellent for skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema. It is similar to natural collagen and contains myristic acid, an anti-inflammatory agent.
Natural Vitamin E Oil
We use this in a lot of our products. It helps normal red blood cells, muscles and other body tissues to grow and remain healthy. It is an anti-oxidant and reduces the cells’ and heart’s need for oxygen. It stimulates the immune system, helps block lipid peroxidation in cells and tissues, and can alleviate allergic reactions and help heal scar tissue. We also use it extensively as it acts as a natural preservative and prevents formulas from becoming rancid.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil
We love this oil so much it features in nearly all of our products. It is undoubtedly the most versatile essential oil and consists of a complex chemical structure. It is one of the few oils which can be used neat (undiluted) on the skin or in wounds. The detailed array of therapeutic properties of lavender are too vast to list here. Lavender is a very useful and safe essential oil to use for many of the minor upsets of babies; colic, nappy rash, teething, burns, rashes, infections, colds, irritability and sleeplessness. It is also very safe to use during pregnancy. Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.
Organic Chamomile Essential Oil
There are several varieties of Chamomile essential oil and their properties overlap to a large extent. We choose to use both German and Roman Chamomile oils in our products as they are also very versatile oils and their properties often overlap with those of Lavender. Chamomile essential oil has a gorgeous and distinctive apple-like scent and is also very beneficial to use for most infant upsets. It is very soothing, calming and anti-inflammatory. It is particularly effective for internal inflammatory conditions such as colic and teething, and its analgesic action is perfect for dull aches and pains. Chamomile tea is widely known for its profoundly calming effect, and is invaluable for use of nervous tension and anxiety. Chamomile is extremely valuable for treating skin conditions and allergies such as eczema, psoriasis and all rashes and dry itchy skin problems. It is one of the most gentlest of oils and is particularly suitable for babies.
Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil
The properties of Orange oil are closely related to that of Neroli being antidepressant, antispasmodic, stomachic and mildly sedative. Although orange appears to actually be more rounded and warmer in aroma, with a “feel good” sense about it. It seems to emit sunshine needed for its ripening. We love Orange oil for its sweet and zesty fragrance.
How to use it
We prefer to let little newborns adjust to their surroundings for a couple of weeks first. Then to spend some quiet quality time bonding with your little one, squirt small amount into your hands and rub hands together to warm. Strip baby down to nappy in a warm and comfortable environment. This is an organic product, please shake well before use. Evenly apply to baby’s skin as required, massage in a circular motion towards the heart to assist in blood flow. Avoid baby’s hands and face.
How does it smell?
We understand the scent of a product is very important, and although synthetic fragrances may smell good, they are not good for baby’s delicate skin. We like to use organic plant based fragrances in the form of essential oils safe for use on babies. This organic baby massage oil contains a delightfully fresh and soothing aroma of Lavender, Sweet Orange and Chamomile which provide a sweet but mildly faint scent which is not too overpowering, it is quite likely our most favourite scent!
