Calendula and Camwood Baby Lotion


Calendula and Camwood Baby lotion. Not a great picture... Couldn't get the light right!

This Camwood and Calendula lotion in my mind is a fusion of traditional healing herbs used often for babies. I have made oil infusions of both herbs in the past to use as body and hair oil, as well as in lip balm and other anhydrous body balms.

For this lotion I used a tea of both herbs with Calendula infused sweet almond oil. I like sweet almond oil for baby lotion because it’s a very light oil and it absorbs easily with no greasy feeling.  This lotion keeps skin looking and feeling moisturized with no residue left on the skin.  Of course I kept a small tub for my own use 😀
