Debra's Rhapsody sent me a sweet little basket of stuff.
There was a 1oz jar of Just Butter, a 2oz jar of Baby
Healing Butter, 4oz bottles of Newborn Infant Massage Oil and
Calming Infant Massage Oil, a 5oz shaker of Soothing Powder,
and a Baby Sleep Sachet, all done up in pink and blue ribbon
The Baby Sleep Sachet is the coolest; it's a little
blue mesh bag with dried rosebuds, lavender, chamomile, and
marjoram tied up inside. You just tuck this little
your pillowcase and sail off to dream land!
It smells just
lovely, and I highly recommend it. There were two
unscented products: the Just Butter and the Newborn
Infant Massage Oil.
According to Debbie it
takes 4 months for a newborn's liver to develop to the point
of being able to effectively process essential oils…
interesting. I, as always, prefer fragrance, but the texture
of both products is nice, and hey - some folks like unscented

caution, as some babies are allergic to them.
The Baby Healing Butter has a very nice texture and
smells cool due to the Calendula infused Sweet Almond Oil and
essential oils of Lavender and Chamomile that it contains.
This butter is handy for little tushies, ouchies, or if you
need something heavier than a lotion; it's moisturizing and
doesn't leave a greasy after feel.
The Calming Infant
Massage Oil is very nice - a blend of grapeseed and nut
oils scented with a blend of Lavender, Sweet Orange, and
Chamomile (all known to have a calming, soothing effect)
essential oils, it's very light and nicely scented.
massage is something every mommy should definitely look into -
very beneficial. The Soothing Powder has a
wonderfully spicy smell and a nice texture due to the
arrowroot powder, bentonite clay, and powdered Lavender
flowers it contains. As with all of the baby powders in this
review, it contains no talc, so it's safe for little lungs.
This little basket of goodies (which sells for $33.00), would
make the perfect shower gift - I know I would have loved
receiving it! Some of these items are sold separately; you can
also buy a smaller gift basket (for $20.00), or a larger one (for
