Baby massage is a wonderful way to get to know your baby. The pleasure and benefits for baby and parents are well documented.
GAIA's natural baby massage oil is a simple formulation designed to purely maximise this experience without unnecessary additives.
It contains a blend of:
- sweet almond oil - nourishes the skin
- certified organic lavender pure essential oil - soothes and calms
- certified organic chamomile pure essential oils - pure pleasure
- Suitable for all ages from birth (including during pregnancy)
- Absorbs completely without leaving any greasy residue
- Leaves skin with a healthy glow
- Doesn't clog pores or cause irritation
Importantly, the pure essential oils make up less than 0.3% of the blend, just enough to cover the nutty smell of the sweet almond oil without interfering with the bonding taking place.
- Baby massage
- General massage for the whole family as well as pregnancy massage
- Massage into your growing, stretching belly during pregnancy to increase suppleness and elasticity
- Add a couple of drops (along with GAIA's Natural Baby Bath & Body Wash) to mum's or bub's bath to provide an even more delightful bath, leaving skin feeling gorgeous!
