We started using essential oils for the first time in 2002 for our baby’s diaper rash. We’d tried a ton of different diaper rash creams, but they were not working. We searched online and found a recipe for a diaper rash spray using olive oil and melaleuca. It worked! From then on we’ve used essential oils for many situations.
Here is a video Stephanie made followed by a list of essential oils we use as a part of our daily routine:
Note: We share our personal experiences with essential oils. We do not diagnose or cure anyone from anything. We love plants!
When we have a symptom we are not comfortable with we look it up in an essential oil reference book or search online to see what others are doing. We also enjoy making recipes, crafts and gifts with essential oils. You can make so many things with essential oils. It is a natural DIY playground. Bath salts, room sprays, lip balm, hair de-tanglers, perfumes, sugar scrubs, food recipes, special aroma blends, scented pendants and satchels. If you can dream it up you can make it!
We feel very prepared with our essential oils. We feel in control of our health. We rarely get sick, and we seem to always have an oil for every situation, whether it be physical or emotional. We also feel very pampered every time we can enjoy a nice calming or elevating aroma.
We gradually became more comfortable using essential oils. It was not overnight for us. We started with just one and continued to increase our use of essential oils. As you experience the oils you start to see how effective they are. We actually keep our essential oils on a tray in the kitchen now, so they are always there for regular use. We feel great that our kids are learning how to care for their bodies naturally too.
