When preparing for Baby Ezrah’s arrival, I went a bit overboard making all sorts of natural baby products for him. I wanted to be ready with everything I needed when he got here.
As you may know, I used to sell herbal skincare products for children in my Etsy shop, but when it came time for my family and I to move into our new house, I decided to close up shop for a bit until things got settled around here and our new house became our home.
I get asked A LOT if I’m going to start selling my products again, and my answer is always the same.
I’d love to! I really miss it, but right now isn’t not the time. It’s been 5 months, and we’re still settling in. Summer is almost here and the house projects are in the forefront of our minds. Plus, I just had a new baby which is another big adjustment. On top of that, homeschooling and running this blog (both of which take a lot of time) are keeping me very busy.
So with that being said, I’ve had a great time getting a bunch of my old supplies back out and making things for my newest baby to use.
One of the things I made was a massage oil for babies and children, perfect after an evening bath to help seal in and retain moisture, as well as help my little one relax and get to sleep easily.
Today, I’d like to share that recipe with you!
Sleepy time Massage Oil for Babies & Children
- 5 oz. sweet almond oil
- 2 TBSP. each calendula and chamomile flowers
- lavender, ylang-ylang, patchouli EO mix (blend below)
All herbs and oils are relaxants and have sedative properties. Perfect for before bed!
- Infuse herbs into oil (learn all the best ways via my Ultimate How-To Guide or with a simple method for free here)
- Strain and scent with essential oil mix below.
- Essential oil sleepytime blend: 3 drops lavender EO, 5 drops ylang-ylang EO, 2 drops patchouli EO
- Bottle, label, and store.
See how easy that was! It’s so simple. Making herbal skincare (and medicinal) products is not difficult, and doing it yourself can save you a ton of money… not to mention cut down on tons of toxins your kiddo is exposed to on a daily basis.
