Things I love: Baby Oil

It may sound strange but I really love baby oil. It is great on my cuticles before bed or instead of body lotion. The place that I go to get a foot massage uses Vaseline, which is sort of in the baby oil family (right?), and feels amazing!!

Recently, I discovered a new use: glossing leaves. While preparing a few holiday arrangements using magnolia leaves from my yard, my mother in law asked me if I was going to baby oil the leaves. I had never heard of such a thing but gave it a shot & LOVE how it looks. It also helped to clean the leaves.

Here’s what we’re doing:
Clip magnolia leaves & trim off any brown edges or dead leaves. Rinse & dry them. Apply baby oil with a dry cloth. Arrange on a lovely tray with candles. It was so easy & looks so cute!
