Comfrey Comfort Baby Oil is perfectly formulated for tender baby skin. Use as a diaper balm or an all over moisturizing skin oil.
- Gather fresh comfrey leaves. Wash them and allow them to wilt overnight. Gently tear the herb leaves into large pieces and use a paper towel to make sure that all moisture is removed from them. Place the herbs in a heat proof pan large enough to hold them plus 4 ounces of oil. Cover the herb with sweet almond oil and place the pan in a warm oven on the lowest setting. Leave the oven door open to make sure the herbs don't burn in the oil.
- Allow the herbs to infuse in the oil for at least 4 hours. Remove and strain, discarding the herbs. You'll have a wonderful green infusion of comfrey herb in the almond oil. You may want to strain the oil a few times to make sure all of the herb pieces are removed.
- Add 1 drop of lavender essential oil if you'd like, or you can omit this until the baby is at least 3 months old. Shake to combine.
- Use this oil as a soothing balm after diaper a change and to prevent chafing. It's also a really nice all over moisturizing skin oil.
