When your babies are sick, the whole house is in turmoil. Some times the medications aren’t helping and you are left with a screaming baby.
Essential oils are fantastic and can aid ANY illness your little one can throw your way. I have gathered a list of top illnesses and the essential oils for you to give a try.
Colic is an period of time where your baby can cry nonstop. The cause is not yet known, but said to be tied to indigestion, gas build up, lactose intolerance, and lack of probiotic bacteria in their little bellies.
- Fennel and Marjoram are great! I use them on both of my littles. Place 1 drop under the tongue and it takes about 15 minutes to start easing your baby’s discomfort.
- Ginger and Bergamot both of these are super great too! You can actually apply directly on their little tummies. I like to dilute with a small amount of coconut oil because my little has sensitive skin.
Everyone gets a common cold every once in a while, but when the kiddos do, it can be a nightmare for baby AND mom. I use these essential oils by diffusing them or I will rub a little (with 2 Tbsp coconut oil) on my girls chest and neck.
They happen to smell phenomenal too!
Nothing is worst than a constipated baby! The entire house will be up for days!
But once again, I am a die hard fan of essential oils and I can attest to these wonders! All three of these can be diluted with coconut oil and massaged on the stomach and feet!
I do love Destin for diaper rash, but this essential oil is terrific too! I like to give my babies a bath at night and will use these to ease her uncomfortable bottom AND makes for a great night sleep! Win, Win for momma!
This is coming from a mom who suffers ear aches on a regular basis so I can tell a baby ear ache from miles away. It wasn’t until I tried these essential oils that lessens the discomfort and can soothe your baby’s pain.
Both can be diluted with 2 Tbsp of fractionated coconut oil and applied behind the ear or with one drop on a small cotton ball and placed inside of the ear.
The flu can be rough for anyone, but is especially rough on the small bodies of your kids. It is a viral infection that affects the respiratory system. Diffusing or mixing with fractionated coconut oil placed on your kid’s neck, feet, behind the ears and on the back.
My littlest suffered from jaundice as an infant. It is a condition where the liver cannot clear the pigment bilirubin in the blood stream. It leaves their skin a yellowish tint.
We helped her by applying these essential oils with a little bit of fractionated coconut oil on the liver area and her jaundice cleared up within a few days.
Any and all of these essential oils are great! I have personally used each of them. Give me a shout if you have any questions about the use of these oils or if you just need a friend.
