I’m obsessed with essential oils because honestly, they have made Mom Life soooo much easier. There’s an oil to chill me out, to fight germs, to make my house smell awesome, to disinfect when I clean and to act as my personal sleeping pill. A lot of companies are coming out with kid-friendly blends, which means that kids can get the same benefits of essential oils that adults can. Here are a few of my must-have oils. You’ll notice I’m not brand-loyal but I do love to recommend oils that I personally use and love!
Lavender oil relieves tension, it’s kid-friendly and it is a great oil to add to your beauty regimen because it disinfects your scalp while leaving behind an awesome scent. I’ll diffuse lavender oil in my home on a regular basis to calm little ones and I’ll mix lavender with some coconut oil to rub on their feet at bedtime. I love how easily this oil blends with others to create the perfect scent!
Kid-Safe’s Germ Destroyer Blend
This blend is like hand sanitizer, only better. I know it sounds weird to think that an oil can fight off germs and I was skeptical too, but as soon as we started using this on our sick little one’s spines we saw results. It smells good, it doesn’t sting and if you purchase the roller blend the formula doesn’t even need diluted. I’ll apply this to my son’s spine and feet after he’s been around a lot of other little kids to ward off germs.
Simply Earth’s Peace and Calming Blend
This is my favorite blend for relaxation. It feels SO decadent to place a couple drops in the tub after a long day. I’ll also diffuse this blend when life gets crazy. It’s a bit more lively than a regular lavender blend because it has hints of lime. It’s not your traditional flowery calming oil!
Head Ease Blend
If you suffer from migraines or even just regular headaches this blend is going to be your lifesaver! My Mom got this for me a couple months ago and it helps relieve headaches fast. The scent is VERY minty, so dilute it if that’s not your thing.
Tea Tree Oil
This oil is a multi-tasking rockstar. Use it for your face. Use it in a homemade toothpaste. Use it to disinfect your house. It also helps cure head lice!
I love having oils on hand that multi-task like the ones I mentioned above. They take up less space and I save money by not purchasing multiple blends.
