I remember my first ever baby shower. The excitement to celebrate my pending baby with friends, the decorations, the love in the air. It was a great day. I also remember coming home with 8 different types of baby lotion. Yes. Eight. I soon started looking at all the ingredients in each of these lotion bottles and slowly one by one threw each of them out. I was extremely grateful to those that gave me these gifts, but I just didn’t feel good about putting such toxic ingredients on my baby. Instead I pulled up this amazing recipe for homemade baby balm.
