Tips to choosing the right baby massage oil
Updated: Feb 24, 2022
Hey Mamas! If you’re reading this blog, I assume that you have decided upon massaging your little one.
It is indeed a brilliant way to show love & nurture your child. I have no doubt that the last thing you want to do is to create any sort of friction on your baby’s delicate skin. Therefore, choosing a safe Baby Massage oil is the first step to help glide your hands smoother on your baby’s skin.
Here are some tips to help guide you opt for the ideal Baby Oil for your little one:
1. It is best to use a light, natural oil to work with. Oil is better than baby lotion as the latter tends to soak into the baby’s skin quite rapidly – thus having to stop the massage in order to reapply it.
2. Remember that a significant amount of what we put on our skin is deeply absorbed within the body – thus opting for an organic and natural fruit oil is ideal. Organic means that the oil is grown without using fertilizers & chemicals, and is interfered with very little during processing.
3. It is also recommended to opt for an oil which is enhanced with Vitamin E. This has amazing skin healing properties and is also a natural antioxidant.
4. Babies recognize their mother's scent even before they are born and it helps them to connect and bond through mum's unique smell. Thus, using a very mild fragranced oil is essential as exposing your baby to strong smells might inhibit such bonding.
Gladly enough, Child’s Farm Organic Baby Oil ticks all the boxes!
Using a combination of grape seed, baobab seed and organic coconut oils blended with olive oil derivatives, Child's Farm Organic Baby Oil can be used on all skin types safely. Being sourced with naturally derived ingredients, you can be rest assured that if baby puts her oily hands & feet in to her mouth, she won’t be ingesting any harmful substances & chemicals into her delicate digestive system.
*As a test you may first want to apply a little amount of oil on your baby’s skin & leave it for a couple of hours, to make sure baby isn’t allergic to coconut oil.
