All throughout my pregnancy, I used Young Living oils for feeling my best. If I had a longer birth experience, I totally would have used them for that, too! 😉 So it is totally natural for me to use oils on my baby….here are my favorites & why I use them!
When using oils on your baby (or child), V6 or coconut oil will become your BFF. Known as a carrier oil, it helps make the oils “go further” and it also helps dilute some of the hotter oils for baby’s sensitive skin.
I have used these 6 oils since my son was 6hrs old. He is currently a year old and, although we add different oils for different occasions, these are STILL my go-to oils for him!
I use 1 drop of R.C. diluted in V6 on his chest. RC stands for Respiratory Care.
A drop of Valor (or Valor II) on the base of his neck after a chiropractic adjustment.
2-3 drops of Gentle Baby on his head before bed. This is great for skin- it definitely helps his cradle cap, and it’s also a calming, relaxing scent.
Diluted Thieves on his feet! I do this before bed, when he gets up, and before we go into town. A baby can use all the immune system support he can get!
Tranquil & Rutavala; this is the bedtime duo! If I forget to apply these to Caleb, he doesn’t sleep/nap as soundly, nor does he go to sleep quite as quickly! I roll Tranquil on behind his ears and Rutavala on his big toes.
I hope this helps you on your path of a healthy lifestyle! If you want more information on Young Living, check out my page here, or if you’re ready to jump feet first into a oily lifestyle & join my community, you can sign up HERE.
