It's Amazing My Children Are Alive
It seems like every family now has a member that has some form of allergy. From food allergies to allergies in the air. I now have two potentially three in our family of 7 who struggle with food allergies. I gave my children Tylenol, Antibiotics, ora gel, used Vics Vapor rub on them; It's amazing they are still alive. Now it's not that all these things are killers but I have learned over the years better options. Through trial and error I've learned and just empowering myself with knowledge of what is better safer alternatives. I was introduced to essential oils over 4 years ago now. I never think of myself as the hippy granola momma but some might say otherwise. I do know that some are more prone to go the pharmaceutical route than the natural (which might take longer for results). Now I am not saying that pharmaceutical is all bad. No, there are times that we desperately need antibiotics or other medicine. But what about some of the simple things.
Did you know: Melaleuca can prevent head lice? A few drops in your shampoo can keep the bugs away. Pink eye is a contagious one. Rub a drop of Melaleuca on the cheek and brow bone.
Respiratory struggles? Put a drop of Eucalyptus in the corner of the shower and let the steam do the action. Rub a couple drops on the feet with socks (just like Vics).
Low grade fever? Put a drop of peppermint on the back of the neck and maybe on the chest helps relieve a feather for a little one. ( always dilute with a carrier oil).
Teething? Baltic Amber necklaces are a natural Ibrophen that warm against the skin and kick off an oil in the system that helps with pain. Punkin' Butts also, has a natural teething oil that is certified organic safe and oh so helpful for those agitated irritated gums.
Colic baby or baby that has a hard time unwinding? Put a drop of lavender in the bath or rub on baby diluted with a carrier oil.
These are just a handful of great ways to use natural alternatives. Give it a try.
