Therefore, please use it with caution initially or use the more gentle Lavender oil.

Newborn to 6 weeks
NICE (the clinical excellence guidelines followed by midwives) recommend that only water is used to cleanse your baby during the first 6 weeks of their life which is why they recommend cotton wool and water. We used lavender oil on our babies from birth with no ill effects but that was our choice and the clinical guidelines are there for a reason so please bear this in mind.
6 weeks and above
Add 4 -6 drops of essential oils to 500ml water
