Babies and Oils Class

Having a baby is a transformative time, and it can make you take another look at the products you’re bringing into your home. Knowing how to safely use essential oils for infants is important for you and your baby, and the Young Living Seedlings™ line is filled with products that you can feel good about using with your little one.

When looking to introduce baby to essential oils, you can feel confident knowing that we’ve formulated these plant-based products with pure essential oils for babies. Hear from Young Living Product Marketing Manager Courtney Chapman about what sets this line apart and how we made products containing essential oils for infants, then listen to Global Trainer Brittany Jacobs share her routine with Seedlings and her baby girl.

Sleepy Baby Routine!

Love this info from sweet Kristen Rae Critz!

This routine has been so sweet for us every night. Doing a bedtime routine is really important as a "signal" for the babes to know that it's time for sleep. Being consistent with it really helps to unwind your babe. We have been moving Ford's bedtime earlier every night so that he gets enough rest and having this routine has helped so much.

For baby Ford, we have been doing bath time every night with the seedlings shampoo and wash, then I take him upstairs and rub him down with the seedlings lotion and apply Lavender + Peace and Calming.

Young Living Seedlings™ Baby Wash & Shampoo is formulated specially for infants’ delicate skin. Its mild, gentle formula is tear-free, sulfate-free, and made from 100 percent plant-based, naturally derived ingredients. It leaves skin and hair clean, soft, and smooth and makes tangles easy to comb out.

There are THREE key ingredients, Lavender EO, eyebright extract and Calendula extract.
So lets take it a bit deeper and talk about the "tear free" formula. Most products that make claims for "tear free" still have warnings that say to "rinse eyes with water immediately" if the shampoo gets in their eyes. BUT OURS DOESN'T HAVE THAT WARNING!!! Why?

Ours has eye bright extract! So not only is it tear free and wont hurt their eyes, but if it gets into the eyes it actually promotes eye health.

How amazing is this?! That is the baseline of YL! Not only are they removing the BAD but they are replacing the bad with something that is actually beneficial for our bodies.


Combat the effects of dry skin and prevent future dryness with Young Living Seedlings™ Baby Lotion. This non-greasy moisturizer supports moisture barrier function and smoothly absorbs into your baby’s delicate skin, leaving it moisturized, soft, and smooth.
Made without alcohol, parabens, synthetic fragrances, artificial dyes, or other unwanted ingredients, Seedlings Baby Lotion is formulated with 100 percent plant-based ingredients and pure essential oils to soothe your little one with a light, calming scent.


Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. It’s this dynamic aroma that has made the flower a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products. As one of our most popular products, Lavender oil is a great beginner oil and a must for every home.

Lavender essential oil isn’t just a favorite because of its classic scent—it’s also highly versatile. From skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse many areas of your life.

Peace & Calming® essential oil is a gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. This fragrant oil is a wonderful addition to your meditation, evening routine, or playtime with the kids. With a comforting, fresh aroma, Peace & Calming oil creates a relaxing environment that’s especially great for homes with children. You’ll love that you can use this oil for you children’s bedtime and then for yourself for a moment of quiet after the house has settled down.

LOVE this from Casey Leigh Wiegand:

Adelaide was my first Oily Pregnancy, my First Oily PostPartum experience and now she's my first Oily baby ! 

I have LOVED these three oils for her! (she's now 7 months old) They have been AMAZING. I put all three in a roller ( I will let you decide for yourself how many drops since all our littles are different)....then filled the rest with v6 carrier oil from Young Living and I roll it on her spine/ chest and feet daily. Usually a couple of times a day! 

Its a beautiful wellness roller with gentle oils to support her tiny body! Not to mention it smells dreamy  ;)

( video here on how to make a roller:

+ "Gentle Baby™ is a soft, fragrant combination of essential oils designed specifically for mothers and babies. It helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. It is also soothing to tender skin. Many of the essential oils in this blend are used in elite cosmetics to enhance a youthful appearance."

+ I mean Lavender is basically the unicorn oil, what do we not use lavender for?
Remember, it's our sweet Grandmother oil! Gentle, soft, comforting, relaxing, and all about making us at home. This is the Swiss Army knife of oils, good for anything!

+Frank. Just read up on the benefits of frank & the support power of frank You want this going on your families daily. Not to mention its grounding! 

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) was once regarded as more valuable than gold in ancient cultures. Frankincense also has a similar effect inside the body, encouraging the cells and functions to come back to their foundations.

The perfect combo for my little pumpkin! 


You know it.... the tears start to come, the fussy moments, those new teeth are trying hard to poke through! Ouch!

+ COPAIBA ( oil comes in the Starter Kit)

1. Wash your hands! 
2. Add a drop of Copaiba to your finger ( “neat”, or mixed with a little coconut oil ) and apply directly to gums. 

Just gently massage that spot and the gumline. This will help support circulation and support the pressure in that spot! 


I love taking a drop of each in a splotch of coconut oil and rubbing on the babies cheek/outside jawline. Massage gently along this area! 

YAY for Happy Teeth and Supported Babies!

Using Supplements & Oils during Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum

(Based off the class taught by Dr. Cindy Haggerton)
Hydration is a big step in maintaining a healthy pregnancy! Drink plenty of liquids throughout your entire pregnancy and while you are nursing.
Before taking an oil internally, smell it to prevent adverse effects. Next, try applying the oil to the skin with a carrier oil. 1 tsp of carrier oil for every 1 drop of oil.
Drink plenty of Ningxia Red throughout pregnancy and have on hand for labor and nursing
Preterm labor - examine emotional needs and endocrine system support
Constant stress plays a role in labor and delivery. Use Endoflex on the neck, lower back and base of ribs for stress support. Can be used throughout entire pregnancy. Nutmeg, myrtle, myrrh and cedarwood can also be used for adrenal support. 
Magnesium should be taken during pregnancy for circulatory support. SuperCal provides calcium and magnesium. 
Avoid Jasmine before birth, but is helpful for placenta release


Basil and Fennel, start after baby is born and clean off breasts before nursing
To ensure mother is getting enough protein, 1-2 scoops of Pure Protein is recommended every day through pregnancy and postpartum reovery.
Recommended supplements for prenatal care: 2-6 ounces of Ningxia Red, Multigreens, Life 5 (probiotic) and OmegaGize (omega 3) daily

A tertiary but useful component is storage. Some of my favorite often come with zones under the top bunk which can be utilized as clubhouses and hidden dens beyond the prying eyes of those pesky 'no-fun' grownups. l shaped triple bunk bed
