Colds and Coughs

All mothers worry about protecting their baby from colds during the winter or when they are exposed to other 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:

  • Eucalyptus – 10 drops
  • Tea tree – 10 drops
  • Lavender – 10 drops
    Mix this blend and store in an amber glass bottle

To use this synergistic blend, place 3 drops on an infuser 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.
