My first time using essential oils

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?

    Sounds like magic 😉
    I’ve been wanting to give EOs a try, particularly for a scalp issue, but I haven’t yet.
    I’ve heard amazing things about oreganooil, too!

    Okay, I’m the new reader that just posted on your latest post and I just scrolled to this one and it’s partially what I just blogged about yesterday-Essential Oils! They have changed our life. I guess you could read the post. 🙂 But be careful what brand you are using. After doing a lot of research I found that many are not as ‘pure’ as they claim to be. And whatever you put on your skin goes into your bloodstream of course. Anyway, they WILL change your life if you’re using the best!

      I checked out your latest post, it was right up my alley with a bunch of natural and green ideas. All our family is sick and I haven’t had too much luck with the oils, any suggestions?

    I have been experimenting with essential oils for the past year and, so far, I am very impressed. The more I learn, the more confident I become in using blends for different things.
