Neal’s Yard Remedies – Top 5 Baby Products

Looking after our Baby’s skin is so important, especially in the early days. We want to use the best, high quality products available to us and Neal’s Yard Remedies uses certified organic ingredients with no ‘nasties’ in their products such as alcohol, petrolatum or preservatives which can dry out and damage skin. Recent research has suggested that the use of harsh ingredients on our skin as babies can lead to later allergies and eczema. As a Baby Massage Instructor I suggest using only water for the first 6 weeks to allow skin to develop in those first few weeks and then introduce high quality products after to help with dry skin, to use in massage, for nappy rash and any other ailments. Here are my Top 5 products for Babies, and all these products can be used by the whole family-

Grapeseed Oil

This light, fragrance free oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, and leaves your skin with a satin smooth finish. Mildly astringent, it helps to tone, balance and condition your skin while regulating its natural moisture levels. Easily absorbed, it’s perfect for a light massage and nourishing your skin from top to toe. This is the oil I use in Baby Massage classes and highly recommend this as a first product to use on skin, it glides and absorbs easily. When doing Baby Massage this one is also great for your own hands and will leave them feeling soft.

  • For all skin types, including children and sensitive skin types
  • Rich in linoleic acid (Omega-6), which is an essential fatty acid
  • Easily absorbed and fragrance free

This oil smells beautiful and suggested for bedtime baby massage as it has a very light scent of that Lavender and Chamomile to settle, sooth and calm the nervous system. If you prefer the pure baby massage oil with no essential oils you can view that here.

Eucalyptus Salve

This skin-softening salve can be used to clear the head with the purifying scent of pine and eucalyptus essential oils. I suggest this with the chest and arm massage when babies have the cold or are congested. It can be used for children and adults too so another staple product to have in your home through the winter months. You can put this on a tea towel over the radiator for that aroma to flow round the house and for older children and adults this is wonderful melted into the bath too.

  • Soften the skin and help clear the head
