When it comes to Oslo and taking care of him, I tend to be a little bit of a freak on what products I use. His skin is so new and delicate that the thought of putting anything other than all natural & organic products on him, just doesn't seem right. Before I had Oslo I spent a ton of time searching online for the best baby lotions and oils, but I found most of the ingredients were unnecessary. So, I decided to buy a few simple ingredients, go into my kitchen, and whip up my own baby body butter. This body butter is so simple to make, very inexpensive, and completely all natural and organic.

I add 100% pure lavender essential oil, but feel free to add whatever oils you want, as long as they are pure. I love to give Oslo a bath before bed and quiet him down by massaging this body butter all over his skin. The smell of lavender soothes him and helps him have a long and deep sleep. Every mother's dream right?

Just three simple ingredients and voilà! The perfect, most nourishing baby body butter you could ever want for your little one.

Lavender Baby Body Butter
3/4 cup of pure organic shea butter (I use this one)
3/4 cup of pure organic coconut oil (I use this one)
20 - 30 drops of 100% pure lavender essential oil
1 glass jar with lid (I use a leftover jelly jar)

1. Add shea butter, coconut oil to a small pan and melt over low heat.

2. Once it has all melted, add the lavender essential oil and stir together, then pour into a glass jar.

3. You're done! Now pamper your babe with this gorgeous butter and hopefully it helps them sleep through the night :)

The body butter should firm up after it cools down. In the Summer months or at least in my home it stays in liquid form, but that helps make it easier to massage in.

Here's a very relaxed Oslo after his massage, all ready for bed.
