Easy Recipe: DIY Essential Oil Baby Powder
Rose and lavender essential oils are safe to use on babies. I used them in my DIY baby powder for my son Harry. They smell so GOOD together and Harry always smelled lovely with this baby powder. I’d dust it all over his body after a bath and also on his hair, taking care not to get any on his eyes or nose.
