Some safety tips
☀️ So let’s learn how to use oils SAFELY with our family: ☀️
- Dilute: please dilute all oils when using on children especially babies!
- Test: should test the oil on yourself first before using on children, then test on them. If you notice any redness or they’re uncomfortable add more carrier oil
- avoid certain oils- all bodies are different so be sure to see how your family reacts to certain oils. See the graphic for a list of top oils to use with care.
- citrus oils can cause your skin to be photosensitive for a couple hours so cover the area or stay out of the sun ☀️
We’ve been using oils safely on our children since they were babies so passing on the blessing!
I seriously wish we had these oils when Jas, my four year old, was a baby. Thankfully I had them for her when she was going through growth spurts and baby discomforts from 6 months on! With my baby Noah, now almost 2, we had them through pregnancy, labor and alll through his baby days! He got to enjoy the bum creams, the gum soothers, and the tummy helpers!
So I’m so happy to share with you all some of the recipes that helped this mama stay sane! And keep our babies happy!
