” This blend may be useful for improving digestive function. The oils in this blend have been found to be beneficial in digesting toxic material and for alleviating indigestion, stomach cramps, upset stomach, belching, bloating and heartburn. “

I have been able to use this blend for myself several times for a queasy stomach. Though the smell is not my favorite (this is where I have to tell you not all oils smell fantastic — they are medicinal too) I cannot deny the help it has given me, either to stop vomiting or prevent the vomit and the pre-vomit belch. ewwww. I know. sorry.

It’s good to have on hand. A no-brainer to reach for when your tummy just doesn’t feel quite right.

Bedtime Stories

Babies crave routine (most adults do too). Routines help them feel safe, secure and relaxed. Our ideal bedtime goes something like this: At 7:30ish PM, wash up, essential oil up, put on pajamas, sing (sometimes rock), bless & say goodnight.

We have nights where all goes wrong. Bedtime is late. Routine is not prioritized. Baby is overtired. Which equals many cries, protests and confusion (for everyone).

We have peaceful & timely nights. Where routine goes smoothly and we do everything that helps baby prepare for nighttime sleep. Then we listen in awe of the silence.

Though most nights are a mix. We have found that the common factor in the routine for bedtime success seems to be this little essential oil duo:

P.S. I put a drop of lavender on baby’s feet before a doctor appointment and he was able to happily hang out in his carseat for the duration of the appointment!

P.P.S. — I like this routine for better sleep too, for myself I add Cedarwood (two drops to the back of my head) which is high in sesquiterpenes – a chemical constituent in EO that increases the amount of oxygen to the pineal (responsible for releasing melatonin)  & pituitary gland (controls most of our hormone function). Sending the signal for more endorphins to be secreted, cleanses neurotransmitters and increases antibodies!
