Homemade Baby Oil

Burt's Bees Baby Oilis awesome but it’s really expensive, and I wanted to avoid mineral oil. So I’ve been making my own baby oil since we ran out of Burt’s Bees. Here's what we use:

Apricot or Sweet Almond oil (about 4oz, or half a cup, or 2/3 of a Trader Joe’s Pesto jar, at a time)
About 15 drops of essential oil-- I’ve been using lavender.
Shake it up.

Simple, good, cheap(er)-- and Noah’s skin has stayed great.
