that's totally COOL!

I didn't know I could make my own lotion (and it contains all-natural ingredients that I can actually pronounce, LOL), or diaper cream or baby oil or bubble bath!

There are some caveats at the bottom of that site:
Notes:
  • Please use essential oils only on babies 6 months or older.
  • A few studies on lavender and tea tree oils have found endocrine disrupting effects on boys. The effects disappeared as soon as the exposures stopped, there were no permanent effects, and not all people respond to the oils this way. It almost seems like an allergy. This issue is the same as the soy issue. They are natural endocrine disruptors. Boys can be more susceptible to the effects of lavender and girls can be more susceptible to soy.
