Pure, healthy and skin-loving, this gentlest blend of vitamin-rich, nourishing seed oils offers your baby nothing but happiness. For massage, you will find it is light and so it creates the perfect ‘glide’ necessary for the delicate task of baby massage, but not sticky and nor will it leave a residue because it absorbs well.
A spokeswoman from the premature baby charity BLISS says: “Baby massage holds a number of benefits, both emotional and physical for premature and full-term babies.”
The prime ingredient is sunflower seed oil is well tested for babies. Premature and very young babies can be at increased risk of nasty infections because their skin is under-developed and lacks full barrier protection. A study in the renowned medical journal The Lancet shows that anointing the skin with sunflower seed oil helps restore this barrier to reduce the incidence infections.
Rosehip seed is nature's miracle oil. It's packed with goodness – vitamins galore, trace elements and Omega 6 and 3 to heal and restore. It keeps skin well- nourished, healthy and can help protect your baby’s skin from dryness.
Tocopheral (Vitamin E) oil contains essential fatty acids as well as being useful in preserving the freshness of oils.
There are no added perfumes, essential oils or preservatives, which can irritate a baby’s skin.
Method: At bath time, add a capful or two to your baby’s bath. For massage, warm a few drops of Baby Oil in your freshly washed hands to give your baby a delightfully soothing massage. Always work towards the heart in slow sweeping movements.

What our customers say:
"I bought this oil for a very premature baby (born around 7 months). I am told by his mum that it is simply wonderful and the baby loves it! Would definitely recommend." Joanne G., Dartford.
"This has made a huge difference to bath time for us. I suffered from the baby blues and needed to find a way of bonding with my new son so I went to a baby massage class and now we have a lovely routine at bath time which calms both my baby and me and we so enjoy our cuddles." Frankie S., Bristol.
My daughter is used to bubbles in her bath, so her first question was ‘Where have all the bubbles gone?’ But bubbles generally come from chemical sources which can dry the skin. I also added a few drops of Little Herb’s rich Baby Oil to the bath. This product is vegan friendly and made from sunflower oil and rose-hip seed. It’s great for easing dry skin conditions. After a bath with Little Herbs’ products my daughter’s skin felt much softer and more nourished. So much so that I didn’t need to apply any moisturiser on her, which I would typically do after each bath." Henri Mackenzie 'My Eco House'. You can read Henri's full review here
