Kids + Oils

Many of you come to me for support with your kids. Sleep, anxiety, fear, mood, concentration, the witching hour are all common themes that I hear. And let's be real, at one time or another we all need help with these!

Young Living has specially formulated blends for kids that are pre diluted so it's just the right amount for their tiny bodies. I thought I would highlight the few that we have used and are loving. All of these oils are under $25 teach... take a clean sweep under your kids bathroom counters and order a few bottles of these to use instead!

First and our absolute fave is SleepyIze. It's a blend of lavender, geranium, roman chamomile, tangerine, bergamot, sacred frankincense, valerian and rue. Basically it smells like you've just stepped into a spa. We add 4 drops of this to a diffuser every night in Ethan's bedroom as we're getting ready for bed and it really just fills the air with the most amazing, relaxing smell that allows him (all of us!) to wind down from the day. His diffuser has a setting that runs for 10 hours so it fills the room all night which I love and now he loves it too! He sets it all up himself and I've heard him explaining to his friends when he has sleepovers what it's for. It's super cute to hear ;) You can also pop a roller top on the bottle and roll it on their little shoulders and the bottoms of their feet (the pores are the biggest on your feet, did you know that?!) before bed.

Next is SnifflEease which is exactly what it sounds like ---- for respiratory support if your kids are feeling congested. It's a blend of eucalyptus blue, palo santo, lavender, dorado azul, ravintsara, myrtle, eucalyptus globulus, marjoram, pine, eucalyptus citriodora, cypress, eucalyptus radiata, black spruce and peppermint. We diffuse a few drops of this overnight. We roll this on Ethan's neck and chest to help open his airways naturally (no more of that vicks vapor rub.) It's a gamechanger.

Ahhhh TummyGize. Too many sweets... use TummyGize. Un-fun side effects of a nasty tummy bug...use TummyGize. It's a cure all. Helps settle the stomach, curb nausea - literally everything. The adult version (Digize) is what converted my husband to a believer in oils. It's a blend of spearmint, peppermint, tangerine, fennel, anise, ginger and cardamom so I will be totally candid and say it doesn't smell the best but once you see the magic it can do you'll be over that.

Thieves. Thieves is the holy grail of immunity support. Depending on how old your child is (you can use thisdilution calculator to figure out how to dilute any of our oils for any age) you would add that amount of drops to a roller top bottle (scroll up and I have a link to some ones I love from amazon under the essential oils tab) and fill the rest with a carrier oil (I love fractionated coconut oil which I also have linked above.) Shake it up and roll it up their spines, bottoms of their feet and on their wrists. Before bed, before school, after school. Thieves alllll day long. Clove, lemon, cinnamon and eucalyptus radiata smell sort of like Christmastime. It's like a powerhouse in a bottle. You can also diffuse it in their rooms to help keep them above the wellness line or if they are already coming down with any kind of yuck. We do this in all of the rooms of our house when sickness is brewing.

Our Kidscents line has a ton of other products (vitamins, supplements, lotions, shampoo, bath gel, toothpaste and so many more). I've also used our regular non-kid specific oils and diluted them and made monster sprays, brave rollers, stink bombs for sports equipment ---- you name it, we can help you with it!
