Young Living Oils: when your kids are sick

Monday, January 23, 2017

Tis the season to be sick! poor kids. Cal has had a cold for what seems like 3 weeks and Blair and Evie came down with it shortly thereafter. The hardest part about kids/babies getting sick is that there isn't a lot that you can give them to ease their discomfort.

I've been using essential oils for almost 5 years now but am finally deciding to post about them and how I use them in my home and with my kids.

Young Living has a great line of diluted oils for kids and Blair loves them! Last night we put a blend called "sniffle ease" on her back, lavender in her diffuser, a sleep blend (lavender and peace and calming) on her feet and an allergy blend (lemon, peppermint, and lavender) on her chest. I think we pretty much covered all the bases. ;)

The babies get a blend called "gentle baby" on their feet every night which I think helps them sleep. It is part of our bedtime routine and I think that it helps them recognize when it's bed time if they smell the same thing each night. We also diffuse lavender and cedarwood in their room. And while I can't attribute their good sleep habits solely to oils I do think they help! They usually wake once overnight or not at all. Night night babies!

This month if you order a Premium Starter Kit you can get a free "peace and calming" oil. This oil is ALWAYS out of stock so it's a great deal! Peace and Calming is one of my favorite oils because hello...who doesn't like their home and kids to be peaceful?!

Have you tried essential oils? Are you obsessed too?


  1. I just started using the oils. I am loving them but can be overwhelmed with them all.

    1. I totally get that! I was the same way (and still am sometimes!) when I got started. That's why I like YL so much...the networking is so helpful! Let me know if you have any questions. :)


I love reading what you have to say! Leave a makes my day!
