Essential Oils for Babies.

The Oily Kitchen Essential Oils Recipe Cards at www.thesoutherninstitute.com
I know a whole lot of people who are using essential oils right now! There is a reason why. It’s not the reason you might think. You’re thinking it’s just a fad, which is what it appears to be, but people have been using essential oils for centuries! The reason so many people are turning to them now is because they work! They are effective and they are gentle and people are taking control of their health. They like that a lot! And so do I.

There are a lot of mothers who are turning to essential oils to treat things that their babies are suffering from, like teething and colic, gas pains and even cradle cap. They have found that their babies get great comfort from the oils! A lot of mothers are not sure which oils to use, however, so I did some research and put together a PDF of essential oil “recipes” for babies. These “recipes” show which oils to use for the common cold, for example, and how to use them. Now, I’m not a doctor, and nor do I pretend to be one. I only know what has worked for myself, my children, and countless others. I’m quite confident that they will work for you too. This is not medical advice in any way, shape, or form, so please do not take it as such.

The fun thing about this PDF is that it is laid out so that you cut it along the four light gray lines which divide it into nine cards: a cover, seven recipe cards, and a glossary. You can punch holes in the top corners, put them on a ring, and stick them in your purse, or hang them on a hook in your medicine cabinet, which is now full of all of the essential oils that have replaced your OTC meds, right? If it’s not, I’d love to share more with you about how essential oils have changed and helped the way we approach health in our family.

If you know someone who would be interested in the Essential Oils for Babies Recipe Cards please send them my way! I’d love to be able to help them.
