Class Handout: All-Natural Baby Products


by Lori Nova Endres

This Class Handout is a digital download. Once purchased, you will find the link to access your document on your MY ACCOUNT page.

We can’t think of a better use for natural homemade products than for our most precious little ones. The truth is, babies are so perfect just the way they are, they don’t need much “product” – but whatever they do need you can make simply and inexpensively using all-natural ingredients.

Grocery store “baby” products (like talc-based “baby powder” and petroleum-based mineral oil sold as “baby oil”) can often do more harm than good. The good news is that you can learn to make quality natural baby products so you’ll have peace of mind knowing exactly what goes onto your baby (or your friends’ babies) because you made it yourself!

In this Class Handout, you will learn how to make:
plant-based Baby Massage Oil, a safe & healthy alternative to mineral oil
talc-free Baby Powder scented with just a hint of organic essential oils
gentle Milk Bath for the tub (great for a bath with mom & baby together!)

All the products described in this Class Handout are great for babies, or adults with sensitive skin who like to baby their skin! All the product recipes are 100% natural, and contain no synthetic ingredients, fragrances or preservatives/parabens. This is a wonderful resource whether you have precious little ones at home, or have friends or family with babies and want to give them natural gifts from the heart!
