4 Baby-Safe Essential Oils For Your ClevaPure Salt Lamp

One of the things we love most about the new ClevaPure Salt Lamp is that you can add a few drops of baby safe essential oils to the diffuser to fragrance the air in your little one’s room. But which oils are the best to use for your little ones? Here are a few suggestions, along with some ‘dos and dont’s’ of using essential oils.

Baby Safe Essential Oils

Lavender: This is the ‘go to’ oil for promoting relaxation and sleep and will help to settle your little one down for the night. In fact it’s good for all ages and this is why we use it in our Junior and Adult pillows.

Chamomile: Another lovely oil known for its calming properties. Because of this, Chamomile is good for soothing fussy/emotional little ones, and relaxes them, ready for sleep.

Orange: This is a bright, uplifting oil which can help to reduce stress and anxiety. It’s also said to enhance creativity and imagination. Other oils distilled from the orange tree, such as Neroli (from the orange blossom) and Petitgrain (from the leaves of the orange tree) have the same calming and uplifting properties.

Bergamot: Another citrus-related oil which is lovely to use. It’s zesty, bright and great for using when your little one has a case of ‘the sads’. Maybe not the best one to use right before bed! 😉

Do’s and Don’ts

While essential oils are a wonderful tool for wellbeing, it’s important to use them properly. Oils should never be used topically (on the skin) unless diluted with a carrier oil or cream and NEVER on babies under 3 months because their skin is so permeable.

Don’t use camphorated oils when your little one has a cold as they can cause irritation. The Himalayan salt crystals and the moisture diffused into the air by the ClevaPure Salt Lamp will help to relieve congestion.

Avoid the likes of strong oils around babies and toddlers like Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Clove, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Fennel, Rosemary.

Choose essential oils from reputable suppliers to ensure purity. Cheap oils can be mixed with chemicals and artificial fragrances. Brands such as Tisserand and the Holland and Barrett range are reliable choices.

Always follow the safety guidelines when using the ClevaPure Salt Lamp and keep your baby safe essential oils out of reach of children.
