Aromatherapy for babies

narrow baby banner

Infancy is the perfect time to start your baby on a natural, holistic journey of self care and healing. The early months are the most precious, so make sure you look after bub with only the best plant based remedies. To start you off, we’ve put together a few nurturing recipes to help you out with some of the most common tot ailments.

Cradle Cap

If your little one has developed patchy, flaky skin on their scalp, there’s no need to reach for chemical-heavy anti-fungals! Cradle Cap is a very common occurrence that can be looked after by adding a drop of German Chamomile essential oil to 50mL of any of the base oils below.

Leave on all day then gently lather with a mild shampoo such as Beautiful Baby Top to Toe Wash and gently lift the scales by massaging baby’s scalp with a soft baby brush.


Who suffers more when bub has a cold? It is so difficult to watch our little ones suffer, but you’re not completely helpless! Add a few drops of cold and flu-fighting essential oils to an aromatherapy diffuser to help relieve congestion. Try this purifying and calming blend:


Soothe an upset baby with uplifting and calming essential oils of Mandarin and Chamomile. Just add 2 drops of Mandarin pure essential oil and 2 drops of German or Roman Chamomile pure essential oil to 50ml carrier oil (eg, sweet almond or apricot kernel) and gently massage baby’s abdomen in a clockwise direction.

Alternatively, add 2 drops of Perfect Potion Beautiful Baby Hush Blend essential oil blend to 50ml of carrier oil or try Beautiful Baby Massage Oil.
