Essential Oils

Cradle Cap

Tabitha Helms

Thankfully Judah has not had many ailments that besiege infants, but he has had some minor cradle cap. Cradle cap is a build-up of oil on the scalp causing minor dermatitis. It does not seem to bother babies, but I'm not one to leave gunk on his head, so I pulled out my trusty oils to relieve his skin.

Directions:
Massage the oil blend on the scalp on the trouble areas. Use a fine tooth comb to gently pry up the crusty skin. Wash baby's hair well with shampoo. (I usually wash twice.)
