Drop essential oils into empty gel capsule, fill to top with olive oil. Swallow with food.  You can also apply these oils to wrist and behind ears for relief.

*If you are new to essential oils do not start with this amount of oils. Start out using just 1 drop of each and increase by one drop every 10 days until full strength is reached.

Nighty Night Rollerball

  • 10 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops Cedarwood essential oil
  • 4 drops Vetiver essential oil
  • Fractionated coconut oil, or sweet almond oil

Drop essential oils into an empty rollerball vial (these are my favorite) and fill to top with carrier oil. Roll on bottom of feet and back of neck before bed. May also diffuse this blend near bedside.

Postpartum

  • ¼ cup shredded bees wax

Melt first 3 ingredients over low heat in a double boiler. Allow to cool to room
temperature then mix in essential oils. Apply just after feedings. Wipe off excess before feeds.

No Fuss Cord Stump Care

  • 4 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 drops Frankincense essential oil
  • 2 drops myrrh essential oil

Combine in a glass dropper vial and apply 2 drops per day onto cordstump of baby. For extra cleanliness, occasionally swab mixture around the cord stump very gently with a q-tip.

Cesarean/Perineal Wound Care Aid

  • 5 drops Geranium essential oil
  • 5 drops Helichrysum essential oil

Combine all ingredients in an airtight container. Apply to the incision after the stitches and glue have dissolved. Apply as frequently as possible. For perineal tears, you may try diluting this mixture even more and applying on location. Do not persist if it is uncomfortable or burns.

Baby

Gentle Baby Spray:

  • 2 oz distilled water
  • 5-8 drops of Young Living Essential Oil like Gentle Baby
  • pinch of Epsom Salt

Add Epsom Salts to 2 oz glass amber bottle, add Essential Oil, THEN add water, shake to blend.  Epsom salt is a dispersant so it’s important to add oils to Epsom salt first!

Just use Avery labels and get your template of choice, then name it something clever….

Gentle Baby Salve:

  • 4 oz. sweet almond oil
  • 1 oz. beeswax pellets
  • 1 TBSP Shea Butter (optional)
  • 2 oz. water
  • 10 drops Vitamin E oil
  • *10 drops lavender essential oil

 

Melt the oil and the wax in a double boiler, Remove from heat, add water, and stir thoroughly. Add your Vitamin E, essential oil and stir continuously until cool. This cream is very moisturizing and emollient. It is nice for rough, dry, or chapped complexions and should help promote healthy looking skin. After you have added the essential oil and the cream is still warm enough to pour, carefully pour it into Salve Jars or metal tins.

*Once you have this salve – it can be customized and used for many different things.  We use it as at night for our eye cream, I add a drop of frankincense (for anti-aging).  Other uses:  eczema, diaper rash, chest rubs, etc…the key is to have the salve, then add whatever oil that you need depending on the issue you need to address.

  • Arrow Root Powder
  • 10 drops Gentle Baby Essential Oil

Blend well and add to Baby Powder Bottle and label!
