It’s now been two months that we bought our essential oils. It has been a whirlwind, but one that I’m thankful every single day for saying yes to. We have kicked so many of the chemicals out of our home from hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, facial cream, wash and toner, toothpaste, cleaner, astringents, sunscreen, after sun care.. the list goes on.
Beyond replacing store bought products in our home, we use our oils for everything. Trust me, when I say “I’ve got an oil for that”, it’s true. When applying yourself, learning and researching there are thousands of ways to use and mix oils. The earth provides us with these amazing oils to use, so why not use them? We often run to the easiest thing – a pill. But we don’t need to guys. We have been pill free for two months now – and it feels so good.
Something I love about Young Living Essential Oils is that they are pure. Top therapeutic grade and has a “Seed To Seal” Stamp. Meaning, that if once distilled and tested, it doesn’t hit the requirements of the company, they will throw the whole batch out. Unlike most companies who put the bottle on the market. Young Living doesn’t.
Did you know that Essential Oils are harvested from Plants? Trees, shrubs, leaves, roots etc.
I asked the boys today if they would like to be a part of my blog and they squealed at the chance. They are a huge fans of their daddy, and anything their daddy loves, they love. I highly doubt that they can comprehend how oils have been working on their bodies. I mean, I can see it, but being 5 and 6, they probably can’t.
Since day one, we have implemented oils into their sleepy routine. Recently our middle son got sick so we applied thieves to his feet and put thieves and purification into the diffuser and he said he felt better within the day!
I always like to point out to new oil users, or people who don’t know a ton about oils that oils should be sacred. When bringing oils into your home you should teach your children that they’re not to be played with our touched. We keep ours up high on a Oil Shelf and our boys know only to touch if we are with them. Once you get this down pat – oils have thousands of benefits for you and your kids!
“Neat” application is a great way to use your oils. For kids, please do your research on what oils you can do this with. I highly suggest, for the majority of oils, that you dilute them with a carrier oil.
In this photo, the boys are applying “Gentle Baby”, which is very safe, I even use it on our one-year-old.
We often have a big container of water beside our diffusers so when they run out, we can top them up and apply our select oils. This ensures we have our diffusers going all day. Seriously folks, it has made a big difference in our lives.
Did you know that the diffusers from Young Living are cold diffusers? Never heat your oils as this will affect and change the properties in the oils.
We have a sleepy blend that we give the kids before bedtime and naps. It consists of our sleep spray and we rub either gentle baby on the soles of their feet or lavender.
Did you know that there are thousands of nerve endings in your feet, so when oil is applied it is sucked up and brought into the bloodstream the quickest? Within 20 minutes of application the oils reach every molecule in the body. So crazy hey!? Our sleepy routine has improved our quality of life for our kids and our sanity ( haha )
As for our bedtime routine, we drop two drops of vetiver into our diffuser at night & two drops of cedarwood or bergamot. This combo knocks us out every time and I’ve had great success with friends and family using this blend too.
Our littlest one obviously doesn’t understand anything about essential oils, but we have seen a huge difference in our sleep. She used to sleep in our bed as she would wake up so frequently. The oils have helped cut down her nursing immensely and have helped her sleep quicker & longer periods.
We like to spray our kids blankets, lovies and bedding with the spray.
We also have a “calming blend” for the day. If you’ve ever met my children, you know they are all very spirited, high energy kids. So thankful for their happy spirits and little giggles. But I work from home, so sometimes the noise and energy needs to be toned down a bit.
