The Top 5 Essential Oils To Keep Your Kids Healthy

Sometimes you gotta just bring out the big guns when your kiddo needs some immune support...

Add 1 drop of each - doTERRA Frankincense + Melaleuca + Lemon + On Guard {Protective Blend} + Oregano to 1 tbsp of Fractionated Coconut Oil and massage into the arches of your little one's feet.  Cover their feet with socks. Reapply every few hours to stay on top of it. 

Also, be sure to load up their bedside AromaLite diffuser that runs 8 hours solid with double Frankincense - 10 drops - so they are breathing in immune supporting vapors as they rest.

Great for the immune + respiratory systems.

A Tip That Every Mom Needs To Know

Is your little one grabbing at their ears?

Immediately apply a couple drops of doTERRA Frankincense + doTERRA Melaleuca in Fractionated Coconut Oil and apply to the front and back ridges of the ear {never directly in the ear} and massage down towards the lymph nodes to encourage healthy drainage. Reapply every few hours.

Also, apply a few drops to a cotton ball, squeeze excess so it's not dripping, and tuck right outside of the ear opening and allow the vapors to soothe the ear. Keep in place all day and for a few days if needed.
