Teething

There is a wide variation in the age when babies begin teething but whenever they start, teething may cause inflammation and soreness of the gums, runny nose, runny stool and often fever as well. It’s important to give the baby something to chew on at this time but do not give him anything he can choke on. Teething is often wrongly blamed for any and every symptom a baby can get so it is important to stay aware of your baby’s condition at this stage.

The essential oil formula for teething is chamomile – 6 drops or lavender – 5 drops diluted in 5 teaspoons sweet almond oil and mixed well. Then take 1 teaspoon of the oil mix and put it in a small container. Fill with ice-cold water and stir very well. Now you have two mixtures for a two-part treatment. First,  dip a cotton ball into the cold water and oil mixture and gently wipe around baby’s gums. Then using just the oil mix, massage around the outside of baby’s face along the jawline. You only need to use a couple of drops of the oil mix each time; just rub a little between your fingers before applying.

Sickness and Vomiting

Babies who are constantly being sick and vomiting may very well be allergic to cow’s milk so consult your doctor who may prescribe a soy milk product. If your baby is not allergic to cow’s milk but continues to throw up, they can be treated effectively with peppermint oil which calms the stomach and makes digestion easier. Put one drop on a cotton ball and place the cotton ball in the baby’s bed at the opposite end of the baby’s head.

Sleeplessness

If your baby keeps you awake all night, this remedy can be used every other night until he or she has learned to sleep through the night. When you put the baby to bed, put a bowl of boiling water beneath the bed on the floor not directly under the baby’s head. Add 1 drop chamomile and 1 drop of geranium oil to the boiling water. Keep the door to baby’s room almost closed (not all the way) to keep the aroma molecules in baby’s room. After a few alternate days of this treatment, your baby will start to conserve his energy and sleep during the night.

baby with coldAll mothers worry about protecting their baby from colds during the winter or anytime they are exposed to other sick children. You should not use essential oil treatments on babies and children as a precaution, because someone else in the home has a cold. To protect your baby, use essential oils diluted in water in a plant spray bottle to use around the house. Spray in the hall outside baby’s room but not in the room.

The easiest way to treat a baby’s cold is to place a small bowl of boiling water to which you have added 3 drops of eucalyptus oil under the baby’s bed at the opposite end from his head. The steam will rise and molecules of the eucalyptus aroma will be released into the room.

You can also use this synergistic blend to treat baby’s cold symptoms:

To use this synergistic blend, place 3 drops on a diffuser in the bedroom for overnight and again during the day. For difficult breathing, place 2 drops on a piece of cotton and place it under the edge of  baby’s pillow. When giving baby a bath, add 1 drop of the synergistic blend to the water and swish it around (for babies and children one to five years old, add 2 drops to the bath.) You can also make a massage oil using 3 drops of the synergistic blend to 2 teaspoons almond oil and massage this over baby’s chest and back.

 


Aromatherapy Helps Me Stay Calm Through A Busy Day

I am often running from one place to another and some of my days are super busy. I literally am doing one task after another from the time that I get up to the time that I am going to bed without any free time in between. It can get hard to get through a busy day and I often feel really stressed out and like I can’t stop to even take a breath.

It is nice to have some good essential oils to help me to keep my focus and to not let my emotions and my stress get to me. Sometimes I just feel like giving up if I am trying to get a lot done but if I push through it, it always ends up being really rewarding. It is nice to have some great essential oils to get me through a busy day.

Getting some nice aromatherapy in with my essential oils is really great and I love having the oils to ensure that I am staying in a great mood and not letting my stress overwhelm me. I have a nice essential oil diffuser at work and I have some great oils all throughout my home as well. The oils are a nice way for me to stay calm and keep a good balance.


Essential Oils for Newborns

If you are pregnant and want to use pure and natural essential oils to keep your baby in good health and treat him or her when necessary for illness, you should start looking now for appropriate small containers to keep the baby’s various creams and lotions in. Your essential oils will come in small brown glass bottles but you will also need tiny pots or pillboxes that have been washed and sterilized. When the baby’s here and you need an essential oil remedy, you don’t want to have to run around looking for a container for the very small quantities you will use.

The essential oils to use for newborn babies are dill, chamomile, or lavender and only in one of two different methods. The first method is to place a bowl of steaming water on the floor in baby’s room, away from the baby’s head. Add 1 drop of essential oil to the steaming water so that it fills the room as it rises with the steam. Do not use more than one drop of essential oil added to a pint of water.

The other way to use essential oils in the baby’s room is to add it to a glazed surface diffuser. Do not use the natural-looking porous clay type of diffuser with babies and children because you need to be able to clean the diffuser thoroughly and that is not possible with clay diffusers. Even one single drop of essential oil added neat to a diffuser is too much for babies. You must add 1 drop of oil to 2 teaspoons of water, mix well and then add a little of this mixture to the diffuser bowl.

Use dill essential oil if your baby is ill with any kind of digestive problem,  such as colic, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, or regurgitation. If the baby has trouble sleeping, use chamomile in the diffuser. Use lavender essential oil to clean up the air in baby’s room and make it smell pleasant. Lavender is also exceptional for its antibiotic, antiseptic, disinfectant and antiviral properties. Even though you only use 1 drop diluted in water in the baby’s diffuser, the fragrance will be lovely and much better for the baby than chemical air fresheners that you can buy for the nursery.


Lose Weight with Patchouli

December 11, 2017

I have a reader question that I would like to discuss today. Jenny asked if I would help her with more information on how to lose weight with patchouli essential oil. First, Jenny, there is no wonder drug or essential oil that will help you to eat less. It is really about self control and your own mindset that you want to change your body through diet and exercise. Visualize a piece of meat and imagine cutting and separating the fat from the lean part. If your diet consists of fruits, vegetables, fish and meat, your body tissue will look like the lean cut of meat. On the other hand, if you eat cakes and sweets, potatoes smothered in butter and fatty meats, you body tissue will be like the fatty part.

There are many essential oils that help fight fat but Jenny asked abut patchouli which can help dieters in several ways. First, it has the ability to diminish your appetite. Regularly put 2-3 drops of patchouli into a diffuser and let it diffuse through the air to reduce your appetite. This is a good way to balance the diet and exercise program you are on. You can also put 8-10 drops of patchouli into your bath water. This will not only help you to reduce your appetite, it may also ease water retention and bloating. Massaging your body with 1 ounce of a good carrier oil containing 2-3 drops of patchouli will also ease water retention and help you tone your body as your diet and exercise program help you lose weight. Jenny, I hope this is helpful to you and to any others interested in losing weight.

Smelly Feet and Tea Tree Oil

Author: Dr. Larita
December 6, 2017

My cousin was complaining about her son’s smelly shoes and stinky feet. She said he takes a shower every day but it doesn’t help so I told her about the wonders of tea tree oil. To rid your shoes of those awful smells you can put 20 drops of tea tree oil in a plant spray bottle with one cup of water. Shake well before you spray inside your shoes. Use the same spray on your feet when you get out of the shower. Let your shoes dry before you wear them and of course, dry your feet after the shower but you don’t need to spray so much on your feet that they get wet enough to dry them again.

If you don’t want to use the spray, there is another way to use essential oils to sweeten the smell of your shoes. Put 2 teaspoons  of bicarbonate of soda into a small container, an egg cup from your last dozen eggs will work great. Add two drops of lemon, lavender, rosemary or tea tree essential oil and mix it as well as you can, then sprinkle it into then shoes and leave it overnight. Tap the powder out in the morning and your shoes will smell as fresh as new.
