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.
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 Mandarin Essential Oil
This oil has a very delicate aroma and is quite true to the scent of the fruit. Its major application is for treating digestive problems as it has a calming effect on the intestines, similar to Neroli and Orange. Because it is so gentle, it is another oil often thought of as the “children’s remedy”. It helps relieve symptoms of colic, burps and hiccups when massaged into the tummy. It is also an excellent and safe oil to use during pregnancy and can help with the prevention of stretch marks.
Organic Peppermint Essential Oil
This is a valuable oil for many purposes and is an effective painkiller, it also helps to control the bacteria on the surface of the skin. It blends well with many oils, especially Lavender and like Spearmint it has a cooling effect. It has been a well known oil to use for digestion purposes and works extremely well to relieve colic.
How to use it
We prefer to let little newborns adjust to their surroundings for a couple of weeks first. Then to help relieve the pain and symptoms of coli squirt small amount into your hands and rub hands together to warm. In a warm and comfortable environment, evenly apply to baby’s skin as required, massage in a clockwise motion around the tummy to assist in the flow of digestion. Avoid baby’s hands and face. This is an organic product, please shake well before use.
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 colic massage oil contains a delightfully fresh and soothing aroma of Lavender, Peppermint and Mandarin for a refreshing and relaxing massage to assist with griping pains.
