As a mom, challenges arise in our children's well-being that offer us an opportunity to learn. Some are simple, "I've got this!" moments, while others lend themselves to more scary + spiral inducing feelings within us.
When I was becoming a FTM (first time mom) I was filled with anxiety. I felt myself triggered by the negative news, debates in mom groups, opinionated friends + overbearing family. The momma bear in me was coming out full throttle + I didn't want to screw it up.
I spent hours on Pinterest sifting through parenting tips that resonated, reading blogs + learning from those ladies who had gone before me. It was a gold mine of registry advice + how to make frozen pads for my lady bits.
Anyone else? Maybe you're currently doing the 3 AM pregnancy insomnia circuit of Facebook, Insta, Pinterest? And perhaps that's how you found this.
So let me help you out a min.
This list is sourced from The Essential Life book, you see me holding here. The book is packed with research backed information. The studies are conveniently located at the bottom of each relevant page for the ease of follow up with further personal research. It's a must have if you are considering oils.
I found this resource when I was having my third baby. And as I write this, a little over three years later, I am now pregnant with babe number 4, woot woot!
I only wish I had found this book sooner + these oily tools. Naturally supporting my family has been a game changer. It wasn't until after rounds of Tylenol, Motrin, antibiotics + allergy meds that I realized that those options didn't have to be the only options. I did even more research.
I found the BEST oils for my family + then I learned everything I could as life gave me the opportunities. Teething, tantrums + tummy aches have all been handled by these little brown bottles of oil. The uses are endless. And even just one bottle can hit on a ton of different needs.
This list is to give you an idea of how you can support your children's wellbeing with pure natural plant grade essential oils. Of course, this does not supplement traditional medical advice nor is it exhaustive. However, it is a call to explore holistic options to aid in your family's combat against life's little curveballs.
I love having an organic option within reach. So, if this appeals to you + you want access to these oils let's talk. I would love to guide you toward the oils that will best serve your family's needs.
I've seen so many of the nuances of parenting these oils can serve. And even more so working from home with three children (all 18 months apart :: 5, 3 + 2 yo). That experience alone will give one a sense of insight to find the most intentional ways to move through the day + night.
For now, save this or tell a friend.
I hope to get to know you soon!
