With all of our sleep issues and sickness lately, I’ve been desperate for anything that might help. I know a few people that like essential oils, so I thought, what the heck, let’s do this! This week I noticed the running nose starting and went three nights with an immunity blend in our diffuser. Three nights…no more snot! Wawhaaat!? So I’m starting on a search to learn more about how I can use essential oils and what all they are good for. This is where Madison comes in…she’s been helping me figure it out, so I asked her to share some with you…
Hey mamas! I am so happy to get to talk with you about something that has been a total game changer in my home – Essential Oils. We get to decide what enters our home, so being educated and understanding natural alternatives is so important. My hope for you is that this information makes you feel empowered. Empowered to bring good, life-giving products into your home. You are the guardian of the threshold of your home – what an honor. With cancer running pretty heavily in my husband’s family, we are extra careful when it comes to the products we are using. We desire our home to be a place of gathering and love, not a place of sickness and pain. Enter essential oils. This life-blood of plants 1) supports the body’s immune system and 2) supports the body in kicking out any sickness that shows up quickly + effectively.
My first experience with essential oils was when my husband got very sick Christmas 2016. I had recently gotten my oils in the mail and didn’t know much about them, but jumped right in because my husband needed some serious support (and fast!). A friend recommended I put Thieves on his spine, lower back, and feet. Thieves is well known for immunity support. I then applied Frankincense on his spine which is very powerful for overall sickness. I also applied RC to his chest – respiratory support. Seeing my husband heal quickly + naturally opened my eyes to this world of essential oils for medicinal use. Since then, I have been floored time and time again by the way these oils have supported our bodies when dealing with sleep issues, stress, anxiety, skin issues, digestion, nausea, teething, sore muscles, cleaning etc etc. We have since started using other essential oil infused products as well because we have seen the value in replacing toxic chemicals in our home with essential oils which, in turn, has created an overall healthier and happier home! We have slowly transitioned into a chemical free lifestyle and are healthier than we have ever been before!
You may be wondering why do essential oils even work anyway?? Well, essential oils work so well outside and inside the body because they create an atmosphere that sickness-causing culprits do not want to live in. They rid the body of the bad, while supporting + strengthening the body at the same time. Because of this, essential oils are a great tool for all moms to have in their wellness tool box.
When it comes to using essential oils on babies/kids, they are so good + healthy for their little bodies. There are some dilution guidelines to follow as well as a few oils to avoid until they are older, but this info is really easy to get your hands on! Some of my favorite uses for oils + babies are teething (copaiba), overall sickness (thieves, frank, RC, lavender), immunity support (thieves), tummy support (digize), and sleep support (lavender, stress away).
Pictured at the beginning are some uses for the most commonly used oils, but there are also pre-diluted oils specifically for children available to you such as tummygize, sleepyize, owie, sniffleease as well as eo infused products for little ones like lotion, shampoo, vitamins, baby wipes etc.
While there are LOTS of essential oil brands out there, through all my research, Young Living brand is the only one I trust and the only ones I’d use on myself & my family, including little ones. They have a Seed to Seal promise–meaning they control the product from the beginning growth of the plant, tree, root, etc. all the way to the bottle you receive. They are 100% natural, good for you and 100% pure. It is SO important to go with an essential oil brand that is labeled for internal use, because taking oils internally can be very beneficial for the body and you need to know exactly what is in that bottle.
Essential Oils have been such a blessing to my family. I hope you experience them so that you may find the same. Don’t feel overwhelmed, this is a journey + you have so much support. If you would like more info on essential oils or are ready to jump in, I am happy to help you! I will also walk you through the ordering process, which is quick and easy. Once you get your oils, you join a wonderful community. We have a Facebook community – The Well – full off like-minded people simply looking for the best for their families by using essential oils + eo infused products.
