Directions Step-By-Step

Infant massage oil

2 drops Lavender
2 drops Roman Chamomile
2 tbs Sweet Almond oil
this can be used daily

use the massage oil above but rub the babys tummy in circular motion then do the same on the babys back

6drops Roman Chamomile
5tsps of vegetable oil ~use a good quality oil ~
mix one tsp of the oil blend in a small container about the size of an ice cube or egg
with cool water rub gently on the baby's gums with a soft cotton cloth and massage
Ear Aches

Use 1 drop lavender
1tsp of olive oil or sweet almond oil
soak a cotton ball and leave it in the childs ear changing it twice
also another way is to massage the outside of the childs ear from the lymh nodes out towards the outside of the ear
For cuts and scraped knees etc..

Clean the area , then in a small bowl of warm water ~about a cup ~ add 12drops Lavender ~you could also use Tea Tree ~ Use a cotton cloth and bathe the area once more. Do this a few times after also if the cut needs to be covered you can apply 1 drop of Lavender neat ~no base~

Use cool water to clean the area , in a small bowl of cool water or use a cool cotton cloth
add 4drops Lavender and either apply as a compress or bathe the area depending on where the burn is.
Use lukewarm water only cool or cold will only increase the fever. In a medium size bowl add 8 drops Lavender 8 drops Roman Chamomile if age appropriate you can add 8 drops Tea Tree oil , also you can use Peppermint but only in a room diffuser .
Wipe the child down continuously depending on how high the fever is you can also wrap the child in a lukewarm sheet soaked in the mixture above . You will have to make it up several times. I had to do this with my youngest when she was 8months her temp was 103 before I started this after it was 99.8 Of course I called her doctor before but my daughters pediatrician also practices alternative medicines . Usually once the child breaks a sweat its a sign of the fever breaking .
I saved them long ago, when I first started
surfing the 'net. If you know who they belong to, I'd love to know so I can
give proper credit. I have tried everything below except for the herbal
baby balm and I must say, they are wonderful! The creamsicle bath is a
special favourite!
Herbal Baby Balm

1 cup sweet almond oil
3 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
1 tablespoon dried calendula petals
1 tablespoon dried rose petals
1 teaspoon dried chamomile flowers

Emollients (to soften and soothe):
2 tablespoons vitamin E oil (10,000 international units)
1 1/2 teaspoons jojoba oil
4 drops of either rose, Roman chamomile, or lavender essential oil

5 tablespoons beeswax
Yield: Approximately 10 ounces

Grind the herbs into a powder using a clean coffee grinder, blender, or a
mortar and pestle. Warm the base oil in the top of a double boiler pot; add
the powdered herbs and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes to 1 hour to
allow the healing properties of the herbs to be fully released into the oil.

Place the emollients in a stainless steel or glass bowl. Place a paper
coffee filter inside a wire strainer, hold over the bowl, and pour the warm
herb and base oil mixture through the strainer into the bowl. Gently apply
pressure to the coffee filter to squeeze out most of the oil, being careful
not to break it or spill any of the herbs.

Melt the beeswax in the top of a double boiler; add slowly to the oil and
herb mixture while whisking with a Fresh whisk or egg beater. Continue
whisking until the mixture is thick and creamy.

Sterilize several 2- to 4-ounce jars (jelly or baby-food jars work well) in
freshly boiled water, so you have enough to hold approximately 10 ounces of
finished balm. Fill each jar with balm, screw on the lid, and wipe off the
jar. Label. If you plan to store balm for 3 months or more, refrigerate.
Powdering Baby
Always exercise caution when using powder; talc can be harmful. Use only
small amounts, if necessary, and avoid inhalation by either yourself or your
baby. Apply powder to your hand and then to baby.
Basic Baby Powder

3 ounces kaolin clay
1/2 teaspoon myrrh powder
3 drops rose, lavender, or Roman chamomile essential oil
Combine all ingredients in a small jar or bottle and mix well. Use
sparingly by applying powder first to your hand, and then to baby.
Yield: Approximately 3 ounces (79 ml)
Herbal Bath Bag for Baby

Here's a simple way to introduce fresh or dried herbs into your baby's care.
Always attempt to buy the freshest ingredients available for your natural
homemade products, or grow them yourself.
2 tablespoons fresh or dried mild herbs:
Lemon balm;
Peppermint; or spearmint.
Put the herbs into a cloth bag or old stocking or sock and tie a knot in
the top. Toss this into a baby tub containing warm water and it will act
like a very large tea bag. After bathing your baby (you don't have to remove
the bag first), put the spent herbs into the compost pile or use to mulch
your houseplants or outdoor container plants.
Always be aware of safety when bathing a baby. Keep objects out of reach of
small hands, make sure water is not too hot, and exercise special caution
when bathing a baby in a slippery tub.
Children's Herbal Baths

Always exercise caution when using essential oils with children. Stick to
mild oils and remember, less is best. Make sure the oils are well diluted in
the water and that the water is the proper temperature. Improper dilution
can result in skin irritation, especially with the citrus oils, so resist
the urge to use just a little more.
Creamsicle Bath
2 drops essential oil of sweet orange
2 drops essential oil of vanilla oleoresin
Add essential oils to a tub full of warm water and mix well.
Lemon Drop Bath

2 drops essential oil of lemon
2 drops essential oil of grapefruit
Add essential oils to a tub full of warm water and mix well.

Sleep-Easy Bath
2 drops ylang-ylang
3 drops lavender
Add essential oils to a tub full of warm water and mix well.
