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 Baby

Do not use an essential oil on a baby until it is at least 24 hours old and even then, only if you have good reason to use it. One good reason is dry and wrinkled skin which many babies have after being in amniotic fluid for nine months and especially if they were overdue or induced. When my first daughter was born, she was absolutely beautiful with lots of curly hair and smooth, clear skin. When my second daughter was born 18 months later I was expecting the same beautiful little angel but she had red splotches and thin straight hair!

If your baby is born with skin problems or develops them early on, you can have a synergistic essential oil blend ready to treat it right away.

  • Wrinkled skin – Mix 8 drops chamomile and 1 drop lavender then put 3 drops of this mixture in 2 tablespoons of the carrier oil mixture of almond oil, evening primrose oil and jojoba oil discussed earlier.
  • Diaper rash – 1 drop chamomile and 1 drop lavender. When you wash baby’s bottom, use a cotton ball dipped in a bowl of 1-pint warm water with one drop of your diaper rash blend added. Swish the water around well first. Use a clean cotton ball each time until the baby is clean and then dry baby’s bottom. Add 1 drop of your essential oil blend to 4 teaspoons of a castor oil cream and zinc mixture. If you have stored your synergistic blend in an amber glass bottle, you can just mix one drop in with 2 teaspoons of the cream and store this in a small sterile container (pill box) and use as necessary.
  • Cradle cap – Mix 1 drop eucalyptus/lemon oil and 1 drop geranium oil and add it to 2 tablespoons of almond oil and shake well. Apply very gently to the scalp with your fingertips avoiding baby’s soft spot. Use this formula once a day until the cradle cap goes away.
