I was so excited to be approached by Inner Senses. They’re a brand I see so frequently appear on Instagram. I was offered the chance to try Inner Senses Little Miracle Baby Oil.
This is my first time trying Inner Senses, so here’s a little bit about this gorgeous brand.
Inner Senses create natural products focusing on the healing properties of pure plant-based oils and aromatherapy. Their products have won multiple awards and are hand blended and cruelty-free.
Lisa Basso founded Inner Senses as part of a journey that started over 20 years ago on the island of Barbados. It’s so fitting that Inner Senses’ story begins in nature, amongst the fragrant jasmine and healing aloe vera that Lisa tended on the island.
This is why we live for the journey of our ingredients.
The product range includes cleansing oils, face and body oils, and oils specifically blended for mama and baby. So let’s take a look at this fabulous baby oil.
Inner Senses Little Miracles Baby Oil
Touted as a gentle and soothing multipurpose oil, Inner Senses Baby Oil won the Best Baby Oil category at The Beauty Shortlist Mama and Baby Awards 2018. It’s suitable for children from 3 months old.
Gentle and relaxing chamomile and lavender in a base of sunflower oil help to protect and soothe skin. As part of a bedtime routine, the essential oils calm and relax, encouraging restfulness. The baby oil is 98% organic and 100% natural.
Our experience using Inner Senses Little Miracles Baby Oil
This oil comes in a beautiful dark glass bottle with pretty labelling. It’s something a little bit different and quite elegant for your baby’s toiletry box.
The pump dispenser releases a baby-sized portion of straw-coloured oil, which is very handy indeed. The oil has the delicate fragrance of chamomile and lavender.
As this is a multipurpose oil, we’ve been using it for different things. In all cases, we apply it right after a bath as part of our bedtime wind down. With Cara, we’ve been massaging her feet, legs, tummy, chest, and arms. As Jonah is nearly 3 and doesn’t like to sit still for long, we massage his feet, legs, and arms.
The oil has a lovely light consistency. It smoothes on beautifully and makes massage easy and comfortable. The baby oil doesn’t leave skin greasy and is quite quickly absorbed. It leaves skin soft and sweetly scented.
I can say it definitely has a calming effect, not just on the children but on us, too! It’s so nice to feel a bond through touch. Massage releases the love hormone oxytocin, and is a lovely way to reconnect in the evening.
Use the oil on problem areas to help soothe and heal, but don’t use on broken skin.
Inner Senses Little Miracles Baby Oil ingredients
Sunflower Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Calendula Flower Extract, Vitamin E, Chamomile Flower Oil, Lavender Flower Oil, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Citronellol.
How do the ingredients help?
Moisturising sunflower seed oil, although humble, is bursting with nutrients such as vitamin E and is useful to reduce inflammation and soothe irritation.
Gentle jojoba oil provides long-lasting moisturisation, helping to keep skin soft and supple.
Sunny calendula flower extract is a well known anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, and actually stimulates collagen regrowth.
Healing chamomile and lavender flower oils have numerous skincare benefits, and treat eczema, rashes, and other complaints. Importantly, both are relaxing, emotionally soothing, calm fussiness, and aid sleep.
Final thoughts on Inner Senses Little Miracles Baby Oil
We’re in love with this wonderful baby oil! With its beautiful plant-based ingredients, it’s so far away from ‘dead’ mineral oil products available on supermarket shelves.
The oil supports our emotional wellbeing by helping us all to relax as part of our bedtime routine. It’s taking great care of my children’s skin.
