never use baby oil for your skin,babies skin,childrens skin or pets either. since baby oil is synthetic fragrance and mineral oil it is an irritant. mineral oil has a very large molecular sructure which lets nothing in or out thus suffocating and clogging your skin. botanical oils are compatible with skin because of its small molecular structure which can be absorbed into our epidermis. grapeseed and apricot are lightest feeling. primrose is great for sensitivities. wheatgerm and jojoba are nuturing. we all have olive oil in our kitchens so use that instead. apricot and almond are best for baby. always make sure if your pregnant you avoid stimulating essential oil like rosemary and eucalyptus. we absorb these oils into our bloodstream through our skin and through inhalation. lavender is safe as well as chammomile.read up before you use essential oils. contrindications exist! and if your allergic to nuts dont use nut oils. so keep it natural.
