While I was pregnant this past winter I so wanted some Gentle Baby from Young Living, but I wasn’t able to make the oily jump until February after my little guy was already 3 months old. Gentle Baby was one of the first oils we got after receiving our Premium Starter Kit and we fell in LOVE!
Gentle Baby™ is a soft, fragrant combination of essential oils designed specifically for mothers and babies. It helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. It is also soothing to tender skin. Many of the essential oils in this blend are used in elite cosmetics to enhance a youthful appearance.
Ten oils make up this great blend:
Rosewood (Aniba rosaeodora), Geranium (pelargonium graveolens), palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile), ylang ylang (Cananga odorata), lemon (Citrus limon), jasmine (Jasminum officinale), bergamot (citrus bergamia), and rose (Rosa damascena)
(Oh isn’t this face awesome! Ugh, why do they always take a pic from the worst place where I look silly? Oh well, enjoy the free laugh!)
Homemade Recipes Using Gentle Baby
Mix a drop or two of Gentle Baby & Lavender EO with a handful of Castile soap. Avoid the eye area but Castile soap is mild. (Gentle Baby is GREAT for skin!)
Mix 1/2 cup of Organic Coconut Oil with 20 drops of Gentle Baby EO and store in a small jar.
(We use this after JL’s bath time and give him a little massage to get ready for bed!)
Mix 1/4 cup of Organic Coconut Oil with 8 drops of Gentle Baby EO and store in a small jar. (Be Share not to contaminate your mixture!
Mix 1 drop of Gentle Baby to 1Tb. of Carrier Oil and apply to tummy
Mix 1/4 cup of Organic Coconut Oil with 8 drops of Gentle Baby and 4 drops of Frankincense and store in small jar. Massage daily until gone.
Take a roll of paper towels, cut in half to create two rolls, get a container to hold the 1/2 roll of paper towels with a tight lid. Flatten the roll and remove the inner cardboard from inside the roll and then place the roll inside the container. In a separate bowl mix 2 cups of water that has been boiled and allowed to cool to room temp, 2 Tbs of Young Living Lavender Shampoo, 2Tbs of liquid coconut oil, and 5 drops of Gentle Baby EO. Once mixed up pour over the paper towels inside the container. Let the wipes set overnight to absorb the mixture. (Save other half to repeat later when you run out of wipes. Be share to keep lid on the container to avoid wipes from drying out.)
Other Uses For Gentle Baby:
Rub a drop of Gentle Baby in your palm and apply to baby’s clothes before bed
Rub a drop on Mommie’s wrists and behind ears
Diffuse 3 drops in your diffuser (a diffuser comes in the Premium Starter Kit) so everyone in the family can enjoy
Put a couple of drops in with the laundry
This would be the perfect gift for that mom to be in your life!
She will thank you, I know I would!
Note: Gentle Baby Blend has citrus oils and bergamot in it, do not expose skin to direct sunlight where Gentle Baby has been applied. (We mainly use it at night before bed!)
