I first started using essential oils in our family about two years or so ago.
I didn’t realize that it would become something that every single member of the family could not live without.
Our family in general is holistic and we research just about everything that comes in contact with our children.
( in fact we NEVER take any Doctor, label, or manufactures word for it)
Test all things; hold fast what is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21
We weren’t always this way,
unfortunately it took some serious health issues to arise with our first born son for
us to question what we were told and who really knows best.
( and thats all I am going to say – blog post for a different day)
So we initially started with a few oils and now have not only every single one we can buy, but a pretty nice stock pile on back up just in case.
What spurred me on to write about the oils is that
James is in some major teething pain.
Just when I thought I was done dealing with a fussy drooling baby
his two year molars decided to show up.
As James and I made his ” teething” blend
which is part Fractionated coconut oil, part Chamomile
I instantly thought I needed to share this information with my fellow Mamas who may be dealing with the same thing.
Some Chamomile Facts:
*Chamomile is one of the oldest, most widely used and well-documented medicinal plants in the world and has been recommended for a variety of healing applications. Chamomile plants are a member of the Asteraceae/Compositae family. There are two common types of chamomile used medicinally today: German chamomile (chamomillarecutita) and Roman chamomile (chamaemelumnobile).
*Considered to be one of the most ancient and versatile essential oils, Roman chamomile essential oil has been used to treat a variety of conditions because of its anti-spasmodic effects due to its high esters content. Today, it’s commonly used in the natural treatment of nervous system problems, eczema, fever, heartburn, gout, anxiety and insomnia.
One of my favorite things about using essential oils is that one oil can be used to help a number of different physical ailments.
Our number one Chamomile use is usually upset tummies,
but today I knew James needed it rubbed on his gums and we quickly made a blend.
Almost instantly he was relieved of the uncomfortable pain of his big molars trying to make their way through. TRUE STORY
I have no reason to sell you on this, try it for yourself and you will be hooked.
Doctors in Europe carry this powerful oil in their medical kits because of its strength and successes for so many physical ailments.
It makes me sad our American healthcare seems to be so far behind
but I hope moving forward that will change.
Chamomile is one of the oldest, most widely used and well-documented medicinal plants in the world and has been recommended for a variety of healing applications.
It is not only safe for infants, but also pets !
Diffuse some of it mixed with Lavender oil in your diffuser and RELAX!
This is one of James favorite oils
( every cub has one)
Below I will attach my personal recipe for teething with the links of where to purchase the roller bottle and Fractionated Coconut oil
If you would like to know more about what brand I personally use and why
shoot me a comment or email !
Fill a glass roller bottle about 85 % with pure Fractionated Coconut Oil
Then add 10-15 drops of Roman Chamomile
Cute labels aren’t necessary but always recommended 🙂
And thats it ! Ready for use.
I have a very easy storage solution for the oils and its TARGET DOLLAR SPOT
I picked up these cute shelves for less than $3.00 and I have one in every room so I don’t have to walk far to grab the kids favorite oils.
The roller bottles I buy to make my own blends are extremely inexpensive and I usually Amozon Prime them
The coconut oil I use is from Amazon also
