GAIA NATURAL BABY MASSAGE OIL IS A BLEND OF :-
- sweet almond oil - a skin nutrient that is very nourishing
- certified organic lavender pure essential oil to soothe and calm
Baby Massage encourages eye to eye and skin contact, and the exchange of soothing sounds and smells, cuddles and smiles all help parent and baby feel closer.
The baby bonding process uses all of your senses, touch being one of them as well as smell. GAIA Skin Naturals have taken special care not to interfere with this natural process by ensuring that our pure essential oils make up less than .3% of our blend, just enough to cover the nutty smell of the sweet almond oil. All the pure essential oils are certified organic.
In fact your baby will recognise the beautiful smell of GAIA Natural Baby Massage Oil and get excited when you put a few drops in your hand because they will know that it is time for their special massage.
All GAIA Natural Baby products use pure essential oils which are suitable to use during pregnancy.
ABOUT BABY MASSAGE
Baby Massage establishes close, loving communication which provides security and stability for your child and has amazing therapeutic benefits.
Massage releases both oxytocin and endorphins and therefore can assist in relieving discomfort associated with teething, congestion, colic, reflux and emotional stress.
It is particularly ideal for premmie babies. Studies have shown that massaging premature babies has an extremely positive result - up to 47% weight increase per day and these premature babies are discharged an average of six days earlier.
Fathers can also benefit from infant massage as it gives them time to connect and interact with their child on a deeper level than day to day contact provides.
