One of the first reasons I started using essential oils was to provide safer options for my family. Now with two little ones many of the oils that I purchased using a Premium Starter Kit from Young Living have become part of our everyday lives. They bring us healthier options from cleaning the home to helping us when we get sick heal faster and keep germs in the house away from others.
Tonight I invite you to join me for a class using Essential oils for Kids live via FaceBook at 830pm Eastern. The information will be up for a few days after the event, so you do not need to log on right at that time if you are interested you can read more the next day.
Here's just a few tips for how I'm using and loving essential oils for my family:
1. All-purpose Cleaner
Use a few drops of Lemon essential oil in a small spray bottle with water and spray areas to clean toys, sports equipment and furniture naturally. I've seen crayon disappear from tables and walls when other cleaners couldn't do the trick!
2. Bedtime Massage Oil
Apply 1 drop of Lavender 1:1 with a carrier oil and massage child’s back, tummy, legs, arms and feet to send them off to dreamland!
3. Deodorize a Room (or Diaper Pail)
Add 2-3 drops of Purification essential oil blend to a diffuser to freshen and deodorize a room. Add a couple drops to a cotton ball and place in the bottom of a trash can or diaper pail.
Use a few drops of Purification and Thieves in the Diffuser to help keep germs away this fall. Apply DiGize or TummyGize (pre-diluted for kids) to help tummy aches feel better.
5. Freshen Laundry
Sour laundry? Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the detergent container of your washing machine to freshen up laundry and eliminate odors.
6. Gunk Remover
Gum: somewhere than in your kid's mouth? Walls decorated with permanent marker? Leftover bandaid stickies on their arms? A couple drops of lemon oil is all you need!
