They are so precious, innocent and truly a gift from heaven!
We truly want what is best for our children and want to keep them safe and healthy!
According to the nonprofit Environmental Working Group (EWG), “the EPA has determined that infants up to age 2 are, on average, 10 times more vulnerable to carcinogenic chemicals than adults, and from age 2 to 15 they are 3 times more vulnerable to carcinogens than adults. Before the age of 2 babies have accumulated 50% of their life-time cancer risk.”
YIKES!!! Is anyone else sorta freaking out after reading this????
6 toxic chemicals that may be lurking in your baby products that you may want to research to
STAY AWAY FROM are:
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- Chemicals that end in “-eth”
5. Petroleum- based products
Many of these toxic chemicals may cause cancer, diabetes, learning disabilities, focus issues, ADD - ADHD, Autism and so much more! Do a google search and you will be alarmed!
Our skin is our largest organ and whatever we put on our skin is getting INTO our bloodstream. Babies are especially at risk as their bodies are so tiny.
My kids are all teens and I WISH I would have know there was a safer way back then. Now, I know better, so I can do better and share what I have learned with you each of you!
There is a safer way! There is a less expensive way! There is an easier way!
A wonderful resource to see the purity and potency of doterra’s oils ~ The SAFEST for your baby and home is www.sourcetoyou.com
Safety first! All essential oils MUST be diluted before applying to your baby’s skin.
My favorite carrier oils are any pure oil such as fractionated coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil or jojoba oil.
Teething: Use Roman Chamomile or Lavender.
One drop essential oil with one Tablespoon carrier oil. Use a small amount to gently massage on jawline.
Healthy Tummy: Digestive Blend , Wild Orange, Roman Chamomile or Lavender
Massage 1 drop diluted with 1 Tablespoon carrier oil onto baby’s tummy to calm digestive troubles.
Sleep: Roman Chamomile or Lavender
Diffuse one drop into the air and/or add 1 drop Lavender diluted with 1 Tablespoon carrier oil to feet and chest. Or add 4 drops lavender to 2 oz spray bottle and spritz on sheets before bed.
Peaceful Mood: Lavender, Wild Orange or Peace (reassuring blend)
Let baby breathe a drop of each from your hands to soothe crying. Can also diffuse one drop during nap time.
Boosted Immunity: OnGuard (protective blend) & Melaleuca Tea Tree Oil
Diluted one drop of each with 1 Tablespoon carrier oil. Rub onto babies spine and bottoms of feet 2-3 times daily. Diffuse 4-6 drops daily in the home to keep baby’s immune system boosted.
Happy Skin & Bum: Roman Chamomile and Lavender
Combine a drop of each with 1 Tablespoon carrier oil and rub onto baby’s bum 2-3x a day. Can also add these to a non-toxic lotion to soothe babies skin.
