So I have a 3 week old and I am over the moon. I’ve been oiling for quite some time now so I used oils throughout my pregnancy and I honestly don’t know how people do life without them. I had an easy pregnancy and an even easier delivery.
Here I am, a new mom, oiling my little mans up. So far it has been amazing. Each oil in the kit provides support for me and baby JJ. Let me tell ya how. Start by checking the dilution chart below. If I’m being honest, I barely dilute, I just make sure I use only 1 drop on the little homie.
Diffuser: Add this to the babes room and get yourself one too! I have a diffuser in every room but I’m extra.
Peace + Calming: This is JJ’s favoriteeeee calming oil. He responds to this one the most. I’ll diffuse this at night in his room and after a nightime bath I apply to his forehead. During diaper changes I’ll apply some to the bottom of his feet.
Valor: Being a new mom is scary. Valor relieves my anxiety. I diffuse this at night and apply to neck and wrists during the day. I cannot live iwthout this oil. Sometime’s I will add this to JJ’s nighttime diffuser.
Frank: This is applied to both mine and JJ’s forehead for focus and centering. Sometimes we just need a reset – most especially when baby boy is crying and it takes me forever to figure out why. Oiy.
Panaway: After birth my back was off. I hear this is common. Panaway for all of the aches and pains.
Stress Away: I mean, need a say more? Mom, bring this in the shower with you – when you can actually take one – and drop away. Rub all over your neck. This scent is unreal so I will diffuse during the day to keep baby J (and myself) from freaking out.
Lavender: Seriously what is lavender not good for? For JJ, I’ll let him sniff this when he is all out of pocket. For me, the uses are endless but that is for another post.
Raven: Sniffles and coughs? Raven baby. Dilute and apply to chest and bridge of nose for the little one should they be snotty and agitated. This oil opens you right up. I always say it’s similar to vicks vapor rub in both smell and use.
Peppermint: I’ve had post partum hormonal headaches. I am not sure if it is my hormones or lack of sleep that I got going on here but pep on the temples is immediate relief. I don’t use this on baby love.
Citrus Fresh: For JJ’s hiccups! This dude sucks down his bottle in such an urgent manner he legit gets hiccups after every feeding that keep him from falling back asleep. Letting him sniff this helps the hiccups subside.
Thieves: Immunity! During the day I will open a window and diffuse this in JJ’s room – if the weather is nice enough for the window to be open – to get the germs out. Obviously nobody wants to try and be a mom when you have a friggin head cold so I use this on myself daily. Rub on your neck and wrists every single morning to stay above the wellness line. Diffuse with other oils for an amazinggggggg fall scent.
Lemon: I add this to my water during the day to curb my cravings. Trying to get my body back to where it was before pregnancy.
Digize: When JJ is constipated I will rub this on his back. Also, after birth mom usually has a terrible time going to the bathroom. I add this to my tea and rub on my stomach to get me moving along.
Ningxia Packets: I take one of these every single day. SO MANY BENEFITS, one including a natural boost of energy. What mom doesn’t need that, am I right?
Thieves Hand Sanitizer and Spray: This is in JJ’s diaper bag so where ever we go I can make sure unwanted germs stay the F away. I favor the spray because it is so quick and easy to use on yourself and all surfaces such as shopping carts and coffee shop tables.
Thieves Cleaning packet: I use this to clean my whole house. JJ could literally lick the table and I won’t have to worry about toxins and chemicals in his mouth that he would’ve gotten from the wood cleaner, windex or bleach.
