12 Uses for Gentle Baby Essential Oil Blend

May 10, 2016·

I realized recently that I haven’t done a “uses for” post in a long time! I always love learning from others on different ways to use certain essential oils and essential oil blends. Since Amos was born, Gentle Baby has been an oil blend that we’ve been going through like CRAZY. I think I’ve gone through like two or three bottles since he was born! We use it for EVERYTHING. It’s so multipurpose! Like, when in doubt, I bust out Gentle Baby!

Anyway, I thought it might be cool to share some of my favorite uses for Gentle Baby! Check it out…
