I was at a mama’s group the other day and a mother asked what oils she should have on hand for every day stuff with her baby.
Here is my list!
Lavender- Relaxation and sleep. Bumps, bruises and scraps. Diaper rashes, cradle cap, scaring, sunburns and most other skin issue. BURNS!!! Allergies and hay fever. Bug bites. Nausea. Earaches and other body pain. Anxiety and depression. House cleaning… Really, Just put Lavender on it.
Balance- This blend brings a feeling of calmness, peace and relaxation. Use for relaxing and stress relief for baby and mom. Use at crazy play dates, before bed, and before stressful situations. I used this every time I would nurse my daughter to sleep. Also when she is taking a very long time to go to sleep and I am starting to become frustrated.
On Guard-This blend of essential oils have been studied for their strong abilities to kill harmful bacteria, mold, and viruses.
All Purpose Kid Spray
1 2 oz mister spray bottle, filled with distilled water
3-5 drops On Guard
Test the spray in your mouth before applying in a child or babies mouth. I would start with less drops and add more if needed. The oils in On Guard are on the hotter side, so just test it on first.
My daughter loves this spray for teething pain and I know plenty of other babies who also love it! It works great at numbing those sore gums. Just spray into their mouth as needed. Like I said, kids love this spray and it won’t be hard.
This spray is also important for killing those germs that kids seem to find. I spray this into my daughters mouth whenever we are heading to a play date, museum, or the park. I also spray this on her hands as an anti-bacterial soap alternative. I also use this to spray off communal toys and picnic tables.
Like I said All Purpose Kid Spray!
Wild Orange- Uplifting to the spirit! Great for postpartum hormones. Diarrhea and other tummy issues, apply 2 drops to belly and feet. Wild Orange helps to increase energy for tired parents. Add 2 drops to water, makes me smile every time I take a sip. Anxiety. Bronchitis and colds. Colic. Fever.
Breathe- I always have this blend on hand! It is so soothing to stuffy noses! Diffuse anytime your child has congestion. Add 1 drop to 1 teaspoon carrier oil and apply to chest and back.
So that’s my fast and easy list!
