Essential Oils are the volitile, aromatic compounds
found in the roots, stems, leaves, bark and flowers of plants.
Are you surprised that I would be drawn to them?
These compounds are extremely powerful.
Antiviral, antimicrobial, anti fungal, antibiotic, anti tumor.
DoTerra Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
are the finest essential oils I have found.
In our family we use them daily.
Mixed in lotions and coconut oil for skin (great for diaper rash too!)
In vinegar for cleaning.
Great in the diaper bin.
For metabolic health too!
Here are some of the Essential Oils that I use everyday.
Lavender = truely my everyday oil. It is very calming. It calms moods, skin, nervous system. I use it with extra virgin coconut oil on my face, and for the babies on their bums. I also use it on feet and the back of the neck to calm and help sleep (adult or child).
"Morning Pick-Me-Up"= a mixture I make for those mornings when I REALLY just want to stay in bed, but babies need to be fed, clothed, diapered, etc. I put it on my face, neck, arms, where ever after washing.
In evcc, I mix 1 drop peppermint, 1 drop clary sage, 1 drop lavender (and sometimes 1 drop geranium/or frankincense)
Peppermint = headaches, sore muscles, it is very oxygenating for muscles and cells, cooling, tension release. Energizing!!!
Lemon = all natural hand sanitizer, mood enhancer (any citrus oil is), kitchen disinfectant. I mix it with vinager and water to mop the floor. Helps clean the liver when taken daily in drinking water.
Melaluca = the skin healer. I use with lavender and evcco to stop and heal facial breakouts. With lavender it is a topical antibacterial and antifungal for cuts and scrapes. Draws out infections.
Frankinsence = liquid gold. You can use it for EVERYTHING. It is beautiful.
Purify essential oil blend = cleanses the air. Perfect for stinky diaper pails, garbages, and disposals. Great for when you burn dinner and your house is filled with smoke... yep.
Wild Orange = my 'be happy' oil. Incredibly uplifting, yet calming to children. Wonderful diffused.
