Infant massage is clinically proven to help infants and toddlers sleep better. According to The Touch Research Institute, the positive effects of massage on infants and toddlers include: improved sleep patterns, reduced anxiety and tension, improved healing and immune function, improved cognitive functioning, improved gastrointestinal functioning, increased parent-child bonding and improved general well-being.
In addition to the massage helping your little one sleep, the essential oils for the Mommy’s Bliss® Sweet Slumber line were carefully chosen to promote sleep. Historically, these oils have been associated with relaxation, rest and sleep. In addition, they have skin-nourishing properties that will keep your baby’s skin soft and supple.
• English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) oil is known for anxiety relief, relaxation and sleep-inducing properties. Antiseptic and antifungal properties mean that this oil helps to heal wounds, cuts and sunburns rapidly, as it aids in the formation of scar tissue.
• Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) oil is known for anxiety relief, relaxation and stress relief. It is also extremely effective in maintaining moisture and the skin’s oil balance, which in turn promotes soft, supple skin.
• Sweet Orange (Citrus aurantium dulcis) peel oil is known for anxiety relief and sedative effects. It also boosts immunity and is very good for maintaining healthy skin.
• German Chamomile (Chamomilla recutita) oil is known for anxiety relief and sleep-inducing properties. It also promotes the healing of wounds, kills bacteria and soothes inflammation.
