This recipe brilliant in its simplicity. The skin-loving combination of just three oils makes for a wonderfully-textured and amazingly not-too-greasy option for baby’s skin, plus the use of Oat extract takes the sensitivity of young skin into consideration. Try this oil on dry patches after a bath for maximum benefit.
8 oz. (by volume) Sunflower Oil

ONE: Start by measuring the Sunflower Oil. Transfer the oil into a container with at least a 16 oz. capacity.
TWO: Measure the Rice Bran Oil and transfer into the larger container.
THREE: Measure the Avocado Oil and transfer to the larger container.
FOUR: Add your Oat Extract by either measuring it in a separate container, or using a dropper.
FIVE: Heat the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds (be sure you are mixing in a heat-safe container!). Give the mixture a good stir to ensure all oils are fully mixed.
Optional step: Although I chose to leave this batch of oil unscented, you can add 2-4 mL of a gentle essential oil like 40/42 Lavender Essential Oil to give your baby oil a light, soothing scent. I recommend a super conservative usage rate when it comes to fragrance or essential oils in this product.
SIX: Using a funnel, carefully pour the oil into bottles. Be sure not to overfill! Just below the shoulder of the bottle is the perfect fill level.
SEVEN: Allow the oil to sit for a few hours to cool before screwing on the caps. Enjoy!
