If you know anyone who uses essential oils, you may have heard the term “there an oil for that.” The truth of the matter is there ARE many oils that are useful in our everyday lives. Today specifically I’m talking about you moms!
Peace & Calming
I diffuse this oil EVERY night for sleep. The smell is sensational. Diffuse it when it’s nap time. Mix 10 drops in 1/2 cup coconut oil to make a sleepy time cream for your little ones. Put a drop or two on your wrists or below your ears when your stressed. You can even rub a few drops on your hyper or scared dog to help him call down. It really helps. It does!
This oil helps to uplift your mood. Struggling with depression? Baby blues? Just occasionally down? Joy can help. Rub on your wrists, neck or over your heart. Diffuse it during the day to help keep your spirits up. I like to mix a few drops with 1/2 cup of Epsom salts for a relaxing bath.
If you’ve done any Pinterest searches for natural cold remedies, you’ve probably seen Thieves. It can be helpful for boosting the immune system and may protect against bacteria and viruses (not FDA approved). I can personally speak to how I’ve used it in the last year. I’m a RN. I’m exposed to illness daily. I take thieves and oregano in a veggie capsule regularly, 4-6 drops of each. My boyfriend who refuses to use oils has been ill many times this winter, I however not one cold. I wonder why???
Diffuse this oil to kill off molds and allergens in your home. Add to your laundry detergent for the same. This oil can also help with acne, the itch of bug bites, and even as a mosquito repellant. Pretty cool!
Ah the biblical oil. This oil can boost your immune system if taken internally. Applied topically or diffused, it helps with stress. It’s great for the skin to help with scars and as a wrinkle reducer. Add a few drops to your current skin moisturizer. Apply a drop or two to healing wounds to reduce scarring.
One of my favorite oils. This oil diffused can help kids with concentration. It helps you with stress and anxiety, diffuse or apply topically. Apply on the jaw line to help relieve TMJ symptoms, it helps the muscles relax. Same with along the spine for back pain. It’s also been known to stop snoring when applied to the big toes! Sneak some on your hubby tonight!
