Today, I am writing about a first.
Specifically, my first time using essential oils.
All my mommy friends have started using essential oils and have recommended them to me. Some even gave me some samples. Admittedly, I was leery at first (and in some ways, I still am). However, I am learning more about them and using them more.
The first time I used them, I didn’t see much of a difference. I put some calming oil on the little guy in hopes that he would sleep through the night. That is, what all my mommy friends said would happen. It did not.
I didn’t give up, though.
We tried again, and I started noticing that the nights I put oil on his feet, he slept better and longer. The nights I forgot, were a little rougher with more wake ups.
I also put some tea tree oil on both kids for diaper rashes and they seem to clear up, no problem.
Now, our entire family is sick. I got some peppermint and eucalyptus oil. I am going to experiment and see if those help the coughing and chest congestion at all.
Do you have any experience with essential oils? How have they worked for you?
