This collection of recipes was gathered from various sources on the internet. When searching for this type information, be careful and evaluate the trustworthiness of the sources you use. A “natural” or homemade product is not necessarily a safe product. While good intentions may be the incentive for a search for safer alternatives, untested recommendations and poorly researched information is widely available on the internet. Double and triple-check and if unsure, consult a physician. Babies’ skin is most permeable in the first six months; avoid unnecessary exposure to chemicals found in baby and personal care products whether on store shelf or homemade. For babies younger than six months, plain warm water and a mild soap is sufficient unless recommended by a doctor or health professional. Do not use essential oils on babies younger than 6 months, while pregnant or breastfeeding. Some essential oils can be toxic.
