The love I have for oils and their benefits is endless.

I love that they are versatile, safe, natural and really easy to use.

AND EFFECTIVE!!

Before I go any further please let me remind you I am not a doctor, certified practitioner (in oils) or aromatherapist. I am just a mama of two beautiful boys and would love to share some beautiful effective blends that will help your little ones.

OIL BLENDS FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE DILUTION CHART SAFELY FOR THEIR AGE!!!

|| DILUTION MADE EASY ||

Creating your own rollers is super easy. Rollers are used for smaller more frequent applications.
I still refer to dilution charts (see below) because it takes the guess work out, plus I’m a very visual person, so something like this image makes it so much easier to follow.
Follow these 3 easy steps: 
1. Add your drops of oil to your preferred dilution.
2. Choose a carrier and top the roller up.
3. Pop the cap on and ROLL ROLL ROLL…..
It’s that easy.
PLEASE NOTE: Frequent small doses is more often than not, more effective. So keep rollers of your fave blends in your bag or always within arms reach and use them as often as you can. You will LOVE how simple rollers can make applying your blends.

II CARRIER OILS II

Here is some info on carrier oils as I understand them. Once I learnt a little more about the differences I was able to make much better decisions on which carrier to use and when. Use what you love and with purpose in mind. If you are ever unsure though, ask me. I’m here to help.

#FractionatedCoconutOil > FCO

I love FCO, it’s the most versatile and economical carrier in my opinion. It doesn’t have a scent and it doesn’t leave an oily residue. It absorbs so well but very nourishing for most skin types. Because it has had the fatty acids removed (fancy fractionated part of the name) it stays in a liquid state.
.
#JojobaOil
A beautiful golden oil in its own right and the closest plant oil to the natural oil produced by our bodies called sebum, Jojoba is the PERFECT carrier. If I could afford to use just this as my carrier oil, I would. It is more expensive so I choose this incredible carrier for my skincare routine. Its nourishing, cleansing and moisturising benefits are second to none.
.
#OliveOil
Something most of us have in our pantries, it’s a great backup if you need something in a pinch. I don’t recommend this as a usual carrier simply because its heavier, has a strong scent and is oily on the skin. However, it has its place so use this carrier for dry hair or cuticle treatments due to its high levels of vitamins and minerals. Absolutely perfect for areas prone to extremely dry or calloused skin.
.
#GrapeseedOil
Another backup carrier and is easily found in major food or health stores. Although it has a shorter shelf life, it is much like olive oil but it has a very light scent and is thinner in consistency.
.
#SweetAlmondOil
A beautiful oil but use with caution if the user may come in contact with anyone who may have a nut allergy. It is a very nourishing carrier and absorbs well but can feel oily initially. Perfect for massage, softening the skin or for minor irritations.

* FEVER
*** Love this one, fevers are good (to a certain extent, if your child really not well always seek medical advice). They help combat the sickness. Using panadol or similar just masks the fever not letting our body do the job we are built to do.

Taken from parents.com “A fever, not surprisingly, indicates that your child is fighting off some kind of infection, such as a simple cold, the flu, or an ear infection. It is not an illness in itself. In fact, a fever may do some good. A study published in the February 2004 Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that children who ran a fever during their first year were less likely to develop allergies later in childhood than children who did not have fever.

More importantly, according to the AAP, a fever can help your child’s body fight off infection. Many illness-causing microbes do best at the body’s normal temperature. A fever raises the temperature beyond which certain microbes need to reproduce. A fever also kicks your child’s immune system into high gear, spurring the rapid production of bug-clobbering white blood cells. A small but growing body of research shows that letting a fever run its course may reduce the length and severity of such illnesses as colds and flu.

As for the concern among parents that fevers can have harmful effects, these instances are very rare. The brain has an internal regulatory mechanism that prevents fevers caused by infections from getting higher than 105 or 106 degrees. Body temperature must get above 108 degrees to cause damage. Temperatures this high are caused only by exceptional circumstances, such as central nervous system disorders or heatstroke. “
