Congestion Support


When it comes to diffusing essential oils in my home I like to stick with blends that are effective and safe for my entire family. My children are young, and so paying specific attention to safety has been an essential component of my journey.

It has been exhaustive trying to sort through all the information swirling around the net. I often cringe at some of the suggestions I scroll past. This is why I feel called to share my experience. Maybe, I can clear up the muck for some other momma out there who's running on no sleep and has babes depending on her to console them.

I felt overwhelmed and helpless after my first born child. That initial year of motherhood was an adjustment and requires an entirely different conversation. So for the sake of the topic at hand, I'll stay on course.

Shortly after my babe turned one, we began attending activities for group play and socialization. Although my hubby and I were rocking in the we care about our child's development department, we came to know the purgatory of no sleep in rounds of never ending congestion.

We continuously faced one thing after another. The co-pays were racking up and we hadn't even enrolled him full time in nursery school. What the hell? I feverishly read blogs, scrolled Pinterest, and searched mommy groups on Facebook for advice for natural approaches to care for his health. Finally, something gave and I discovered oils.

Pure potent plant oil are now my magic. I encourage you to educate yourself on properly diffusing and topically diluting essential oils for you and your family. Age matters and so does exposure, know this. I follow specific safety guidelines in my home and find that we are effectively supporting ourselves since unleashing the love from these gifts of the Earth.

When supporting the little essential oilers in our home we stick to this list of essential oils for respiratory health. My hope in sharing this specific list we use for our children, is that you may support and serve your family well!
