Motherhood was the catalyst for me to move towards a low tox life and to start seeking natural alternatives to some of the common household products we were buying from the supermarket. Essentials Oils have become a huge part in this shift in lifestyle.
And while essential oils can be amazing tools in a holistic approach, there is just so much to learn about them, it can be overwhelming to a new mum who just wanted to make a start.
That’s why, after using essential oils for the last two years with my two young daughters, I’ve put together my top three recommendations for the most versatile and safest and cost effective oils to support your little ones.
Lavender, Lemon and Tea Tree are the three oils I would recommend for all new mums who are wanting to move towards a more natural approach to health and wellness. They are all gentle enough to use around babies; they are all so versatile and can be used from emotional support, sleep support, natural remedies and low tox cleaning alternatives.
And they are all one the more affordable end of the scale. You can get started with these three oils and a wholesale memberships for just over $100 - $101 to be exact!
Lavender is a gentle but powerful oil that is known for it’s calming and relaxing qualities. It’s also very gentle and and soothing to the skin, reducing the appearance of imperfections.
Lemon is has an uplifting, refreshing aroma and can be used as a natural cleaner throughout the home. Lemon’s aroma can both energise your mood and promote a sense of joyfulness and cheer, while also acting as a natural air freshener.
Tea Tree is know for it’s cleansing and purifying abilities, both environmentally and when applied to the skin. It’s a very gentle oil, gentle enough to use topically on babies when addressing rashes.
Lavender is very calming to the senses, making it a wonderful oil to diffuse around bedtime or naps to create a restful environment and set up an aromatic sleep association. It’s gentle enough for babies but also effective at keeping mums calm too.
Lavender and Tea Tree are also gentle on babies skin when used safely. Lavender is soothing to rashes and irritating while Tea Tree has cleansing properties. Together you can use them to make natural babies wipes, creams and salves.
Tea Tree, Lavender and Lemon can be combined together for a night time diffuser blend when bub is needing a bit of respiratory support. The combination of all three can offer support when snotty noses are present as they promote clear calm breathing.
NATURAL CLEANING AND GERM BUSTING
Tea Tree and Lemon are awesome to use for their cleansing and purify qualities. Diffuse them together when there are signs of germs in the air or use either or both in an all natural multi purpose surface spray. You could also make up your own hand sanitiser with these two oils.. perfect in the nappy bag for those nappy changes while out and about.
NATURAL AIR FRESHENER
Lemon works wonders at neutralising orders, making it the perfect oil to spray around the nappy bail.
Emotionally, Lemon is very uplifting and energising, perfect to diffuse in the mornings to give you a bit of a boost after the long nights of broken sleep and feeding.
BAD MOOD BE GONE
Lemon and Lavender is another divine combination in the diffuser. It’s smell so fresh and clean and works wonders at getting you in a good mood.
