013: How to Use Essential Oils Safely With Your Baby

Disclaimer – This podcast is for informational purposes only and does not constitute medical advice. Please contact a medical practitioner if you are concerned and have any medical issue.

When I teach parents how to massage their babies I always urge them before massaging their little one to be extremely cautious when it comes to their choice of massage oils. So I was very excited this week when I interviewed Ruth Casper, who is a qualified aromatherapist and reflexologist. I made the most of the opportunity and quizzed Ruth on various topics including essential oils and when it is safe to use them.

Ruth also shares information including:-

  • 3 things to look for when assessing the quality of essential oils.
  • What to ask essential oil vendors/suppliers to ensure their product is of good quality and suitable.
