This product is incredibly mild and gentle, and contains soothing plant-based ingredients for the skin. Apply to diaper rash, cradle cap or any skin irritation. While the amounts of essential oils in this are so mild, doctors generally recommend waiting until your baby is 3 months old to use products. Before then, we suggest using no lotions or essential oils on your baby, just plain coconut, olive or jojoba oil for chapped or dry skin. Otherwise, let baby's skin breathe as much as possible.
