From diapers and outfits to bath and stroller accessories, the list of items on a baby shower registry can be pretty predictable, but you want to help welcome the new baby with a gift that is as distinctive and useful as it is thoughtful. Why not create a themed, essential oil-infused gift basket that shows just how much you care? Check out these fun ideas!


Diaper Changing Pack

DIY a pack of gentle baby wipes with essential oils and KidScents® Bath Gel! Tear off each sheet in a roll of sturdy paper towels and stack them on a cookie sheet or casserole dish with raised edges. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon KidScents Bath Gel with 1 cup distilled water and 2 drops Lavender or Gentle Baby essential oil. Pour mixture evenly over paper towels until uniformly moistened. Store in a container with an airtight lid; wipes should be used within one week.

    Thank you.

  • Alette

    Is Tender Tush cloth diaper safe? I just purchased Thirsties naturals cloth diapers and don’t want to ruin them with a diaper cream that is not certainly cloth diaper safe 🙂

    • Young Living

      Hello Alette, It is fine to use Tender Tush in conjunction with cloth diapers. Thanks for stopping by!

  • I know it sounds very British but we had a proper cream tea with plenty of tea and lots of cakes.

  • I’m attending a baby shower and I love the idea of a nursery gift basket!

  • Jolene

    I made a basket of DIY ingredients, YLEO, and recipe cards for baby skin care products such as lotion, body wash, baby powder, baby oil, wipes, and some mommy products too. I put everything is a pretty box that can be displayed and used to hold diapers and wipes later.

  • Sherian

    One of my favorite gifts to give a new mommy is the Gently Baby Book, Tender Tush and a dropper bottle of diluted lavender. Great gift for mommy and baby!

  • I make a DIY cream with lavender. . Coconut oil..raw shea butter and arrowroot powder it!
    The kidscents line of oils is great too!

    • shelley f hollinger

      love all the amazing ideas and would be interested in your recipe for diy cream with lavender, coconut oil, raw shea butter and arrowroot powder. My grandaughter is bringing home twin preemie boys in couple of months and wanted to get her started on YL products that she can enjoy and for her miracle babies.

    I have been going with carseat canopies ever sinve I found a code that gives a 100% discount so I just have to pay shipping. Use “E38C9A” at – it also works on the rest of the products at I have been very happy with them.
