If there’s one lesson I have really learned, it’s that you need to pay attention to the ingredients inside the products you use. Parents especially need to be extra careful about using products with ingredients that won’t harm their baby or irritate their skin. When it comes down to allergy protection and soothing bug bites, some of the products on the market can be loaded with chemicals and simply not safe for a baby.
Meet Oilogic, and innovative company using this key ingredient to keep babies safe. What’s the key ingredient? Essential Oils! Essential Oils are safe and effective, or in the words of Oilogic, “powerful lil’ nature potions”. So what exactly are Essential Oils? They are derived from flowers and plants, and it just doesn’t get more natural than that! They are also non-toxic, all-natural, and non-invasive and Oilogic’s line is Pediatrician & Dermatologist tested!
The first of their products I got to review was the Bug Bites & Itches Essential Oil Roll-On. It is safe for babies 24 months and older. My first impression is that it smells amazing. The primary ingredients are Spearmint Oil, Citronella Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Lemon Oil, Chamomile Oil, and Lavandin Oil. This does not smell overwhelmingly like Citronella though, which is a scent I personally think is very overpowering and can smell very gross. This smells more like Spearmint Oil!
You are supposed to apply this directly to your baby’s itchy areas that have fallen victim to bug bites. After testing this on a friend’s 3 year old as well as myself for good measure, I was surprised with how well this reduces bug bite itches!
The second product I got to review was the Itchy Eyes & Sneezes Essential Oil Roll-On. This one is made with the main ingredients of Lavandin Oil, Lemon Oil, Geranium Oil, Spearmint Oil, and Ylang Ylang Oil. This one smells most like Geranium and Lemon, which is also to say it smells great! This should be applied to your baby’s chest and back of the neck. I was pleasantly surprised that this worked great as well!
My final thoughts are that Oilogic’s Essential Oil blends smell great, work great, and are very easy to use with their roll on applicators. I think it’s a Mom must have for sure!
Oilogic’s Essential Oil blends are something every parent can get behind. They also have a line of products for older children and adults too! You can check out all of the exciting things they offer here.
