I’ve sat on this idea of making an unscented oil blend that’s gentle enough for even infants’ skin for the longest time, and I’m glad to announce that it’s finally available! Baby Bliss is a straightforward blend of jojoba, camellia and macadamia nut oils that serve to moisturize and protect babies’ delicate skin, right from birth when their sebum production is at its lowest. Just a drop or two warmed up in the palms of your hands should suffice.
Essential oils were intentionally omitted as I wanted to make the blend as unobtrusive and mild as possible for babies, and also for those who prefer an unscented alternative to the other Skin Treats oils that are available.
Is it greasy?
As long as you use as much as your skin can absorb, it isn’t. I made sure that this oil blend is light and should sink easily into your skin.
How to use:
Shake the bottle well. Warm up a small amount of oil in the palm of your hands before massaging it into areas that need attention, e.g. sore eczema patches, or areas of skin that are dry. Can be used on the face as well. For babies try to avoid applying the oil on their hands or fingers, especially if they are particularly fond of sucking their fists (as most young babies are wont to do).
How about trying it out as a nightly facial cleanser?
Apply a more generous amount in gentle, circular motions on your face. Take your time–the warmth from your hands will encourage the oils to be absorbed into your skin. Jojoba oil effectively dissolves dirt and grease (it’s my favourite ingredient for this purpose!), lifting them away from the pores of your skin. Finish by washing off the oil using a little soapy water and rinsing off thoroughly. You may not need to use a moisturizer after this–just be attentive to how your skin feels!
Keep in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight (a drawer in your dresser would be ideal). Use within 1 year of purchase.
