Aromatherapy can be used in a variety of ways for your baby. The healing power of aromatherapy oils helps your baby be healthy and free from harmful germs and bacteria. Be careful to keep the amount of aromatherapy oil very low, as it is sufficient for an infant or small child.
The most suitable aromatherapy oils for your baby are chamomile, lavender, rose, neroli, sandalwood and tangerine. The best carrier oil for babies is sweet almond oil, as it has a softening, lubricating effect on the skin and is much gentler than the mineral oil that most commercial baby products are based on.
This article will now discuss some of the simple yet effective ways to keep your baby healthy using aromatherapy.
one. baby bath – You can add soothing aromatherapy oils to your baby’s baths to create a pleasant scent and soothe their sensitive skin. Chamomile, rose or lavender oils are best for this purpose.
2. Germ Free – Try using any of these oils (lavender, frankincense, sandalwood, neroli, chamomile, eucalyptus or geranium) in a vaporizer in your baby’s room. They are pleasant and soothing as well as helping to clean the air and keep germs away.
3. teething – While your baby is teething, chamomile oil helps calm and soothe inflamed gums. Dilute two drops in some warm water and rub the affected area three times a day.
4. cradle cap – This scaly, red, itchy condition usually affects young babies. Mix one drop of chamomile oil and one drop of rose oil in 100 ml of sweet almond oil. Gently rub the cradle cap three times a day.
5. Colds and stuffy noses – Use any of these oils (lavender, eucalyptus, thyme, lemon, pine or rosemary) in a vaporizer when your baby has a stuffy nose or has a cold. They destroy germs and help make breathing easier.
