Moving on to babies + oils part 3, ages one day-2 years old.
I have been following these suggestions and our current favorites are Lavender, Gentle Baby and Frankincense. I apply these oils to my little guy after they are blended into fractionated coconut oil and in a roller for easy application. The bottoms of feet are a non sensitive place to start, I also roll the oil into my palm and then gently stroke the top of his head works like a charm! ✨ It also helps with cradle cap or any dry skin that newborns get. Check out the book Gentle Babies by Debra Rayburn for more info on all things babies and oils.
ANNNNNDDD, Young Living just released a whole new baby line!!!! This is a game changer and lifesaver for all mamas out there who have the same nightmares of going to the store with baby or babies 😱😭 I’m still trying to master the store just the two of us!

Moving on from Pregnancy I wanted to share some oils that were helpful to me during labor.
In my hospital room my sister was my saving grace, she made sure the diffuser was full and always running. My favorite combo was Stress Away and Valor! Seriously couldn’t have made it without those two! A cool washcloth applied to my forehead was oh so nice too, I had my sister add lavender to the washcloth for an extra calming effect. In early labor at home I applied Sclaressence to my ankles to help with contractions and it seemed to help alleviate some of the pain in the beginning of it all. After delivery and the few next days I drank all the Ningxia! 2-4 ounces a day is all you need and I definitely appreciated the extra energy and mental clarity it provided! Love it! I feel like it helps with milk supply too so keep that in mind if you’re needing to up your supply. I started using Progessence Plus about 10 days after giving birth and I honestly can say it has kept me fairly level considering all the hormone changes my body is going through. Progessence Plus supports your hormones with wild yam extra which is a natural progesterone. It also contains, balsam fir, Frankincense and a few other emotional supporting oils, it smells divine, light and woodsy.
I’m so thankful I was able to have these oils apart of my birthing experience, they helped me so much and I hope they can do the same for you! Have a question? Feel free to comment or email me with any of your questions! 🌿❤️
I am going to share a few ways that I love to use essential oils on my babe and around my babe. I will post new tips throughout a few posts so be sure to check back often!
First up, oils + pregnancy…
These were some of my favorites during my pregnancy and I found huge emotional help from Joy and Valor! Claraderm spray for perineal care…you will want this if you don’t want to tear. You’re welcome. I mixed Gentle baby and coconut oil and applied to my belly everyday, lifesaver when it comes to avoiding stretch marks! Last but not least, Ningxia Red, everyday I took my 2 oz. If I needed an afternoon pick me up I would take a second 2 oz. shot. I hope you find some of this helpful along your wellness journey with pregnancy and oils.
With summertime approaching pretty much this week here in Boise Idaho and my desire to live toxin free, I wanted to share with you a DIY non toxic deodorant recipe.
Let me know if you have a favorite non toxic deodorant you use or have a recipe!
Grapefruit essential oil is full of antioxidants which promotes healthy looking skin! Whip up a batch of this just in time for summer time pool parties and bikinis 👙🍹🌴 or any postpartum tummies and legs for all my mamas out there like me who just want to fit into their pre pregnancy clothes ☺️ Either way you’re gonna love this combo! Enjoy!
Ditch + Switch made easy! Plus this smells AMAZING!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups Epsom Salt
1/2 cup Baking Soda
15 drops Purification EO
15 drops Lavender EO
Glass bowl to mix all ingredients together
Store in a glass container and add 1/4-1/2 cup to into washer with each load of laundry.
As I approach the end of my pregnancy it’s very bitter sweet. I cannot wait to meet our little guy but I know this next phase of life will be a whirlwind adventure. He will grow up too fast and I won’t be able to protect him from every little thing like I can now. Regardless, I am beyond excited!
I wanted to share with you a little about why I chose to do a home based business and why I chose Young Living. It’s Monday and I know some of you out there are hating life because of your job! That was me a few months ago!
My number one reason for starting my business was our baby. I knew I wanted to be a stay at home mom but I still needed an income. The opportunity Young Living provides is so generous that everyone has the opportunity at an income with no ceiling. The products they produce are simply put, the BEST! That’s why this is easy for me to be passionate about helping other mamas gain time and financial freedom with YL. I don’t sell oils that’s the beauty of it all. I introduce, educate and lead, you purchase your own oils through Young Living. Easy peasy! As women, we naturally tell our friends about our favorite products, restaurants etc. I knew this would be an easy thing form me to do since I was already using the best products out there and I would be telling others about it anyways. My hope is that if you are looking for something better for your family whether it’s removing toxins from your home and lifestyle or you are looking for it all, a life detox from toxins, time freedom, financial freedom, to gain a community of encouragement and support through it all then I’m ready to help you! Purchasing my starter kit was the easiest thing I ever did and it’s been life changing! The fact that you can gain all of this with one little starter kit blows my mind, and I’m truly thankful! I would love to hear from you! Comment below or email me!!!
I want to help take out the intimidation that can very easily come with using essential oils.
I will show you how to take away the mystery behind essential oils and help you get some really easy, practical tips on how to simply start applying them to your lifestyle as well as a bit of information about what they are! If you would like to attend the class will be hosted on Thursday night 4/20/17 on Facebook @ 7:00 MST. Comment with your email to be added to the invite list! I hope to see you there! Feel free to ask any questions!
I’m ready to meet you and show you your new home little one. I know I’m going to miss these moments in life while I have you so close and near that I can feel your hiccups and feel your every move, but I also know how excited I am to see you. I want to see you smile, yawn and sneeze. I want to give you kisses and hugs. I can’t wait to hold you, so whenever you’re ready I am too. Never in a million years would I have guessed I’d be a mama! But I’m over the moon excited to be your mama.
