As a mum I’ve never felt more empowered being able to support my children’s health with something that is not only 100% plant-based but that works so effectively. It’s one of the greatest gifts to have a healthy and happy family.
I would like to share with you some simple ways I use essential oils with my children. (Please note: whilst reactions to essential oils tend to be minor, caution is required due to the potency of some essential oils.)
Here are just a few ways I use essential oils with our family:
When I run their bath I add 4 drops Lavender with a little milk (the milk helps it disperse itself throughout the bath.). While the bath is running I pop some Lavender or Serenity (our gorgeous calming blend) with some Wild Orange in the diffuser. This creates a wonderful calming atmosphere. If you have boys you’ll know this is much needed 😉
The moment there is a cough going around, snot (so gross, sorry!) we diffuse the respiratory blend and apply to the underside of the kids feet. This blend supports their breathing throughout the night.
I have 7 year old twins boys so we ALWAYS have something going on with the skin from either a football or rugby injury. Lavender is the first oil to come out for any skin irritations. Whilst we know Lavender is very calming for the mind, but did you know it’s also wonderfully calming for the skin? Think cuts, crazes, bumps, bruises, nappy rash, sunburn, and even bites and burns!
We have Lavender in our ‘Owie’ spray. Owie spray is like the best Dettol you ever had without the sting. It includes Lavender, Melaleuca (Tea Tree), and Frankincense diluted with some fractionated carrier oil. Frankincense is very soothing and healing for the skin and Melaleuca is by nature a disinfectant so it naturally cleans the wound.
If there is the slightest illness going around then I’ll apply the On Guard Protective Blend onto the soles of their feet then we cover with socks. On Guard is an absolute powerhouse for the immune system. Through the winter months I love to diffuse it with Frankincense, such a heavenly aroma with multiple health benefits, both physically and emotionally.
We are always diffusing a range of essential oils throughout the day to support our emotions. We like to start the day with uplifting and motivating citrus oils or peppermint. Then towards the end of the day when the children get home from school we put on something calmer like Lavender, Frankincense, & Wild Orange – have I told you yet that this is my absolute favourite blend?
I also love to use our grounding blend Balance for both myself and the children. I call it ‘mama’s medicine’ but I also like to use it with the children if anyone has their cranky pants on or for heightened emotions.
