In your journey to healthier living, have you ever wished you had natural and effective options in your medicine cabinet?
Many people know that synthetic medicine isn’t the healthiest for their kids, but they feel like they have no other effective option.
Well, good news! I have found the secret weapon that was missing in our healthy living arsenal. The beautiful and powerful pure aromatic compounds found in therapeutic grade essential oils. And they are EASY to use, which is what used to keep me away from natural medicine. It seems so complicated and time-consuming. We have been able to avoid sick doctors visits for 3 years! Having sick kids is way more time consuming.
What are essential oils? They are the natural defence mechanism of the plant. They comprise of numerous aromatic compounds (we call them active ingredients in modern medicine) that have long been used in health-care practices around the world.
With children, we mostly use them topically, either where there is pain or discomfort or under the feet, to allow the oils to go into the bloodstream without causing any skin irritations. Diffusing the oils is also a powerful way to use the oils.
You will notice I mention the essential oil brand that I use quite a bit. The reason being is that it is the best company by far when it comes to the quality of essential oils, their potency, as well as the positive impact they have globally in all the supply chain. When it comes to helping my child fight off an ear infection, for example, it better work and be safe. This mama ain’t got no time to lose!

I’m only going to mention Immunity and Sleep today, we’ll keep digestive issues and mood and behaviour issues for another time 🙂
We do our best at feeding our kids nutritious foods and getting them to exercise , our kids can still get sick from time to time!
The best I have found is doTERRA’s OnGuard protective blend. It protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system. Lots of studies show that many essential oils inhibit the growth of microorganisms like bacteria or fungi. Isn’t it great news! 🙂
THE FIGHT IS ON:
This has to be one of my favourite properties of essential oils, their antibacterial and antiviral properties. I wouldn’t be able to explain it as well as Dr. Steuer does here:
Getting enough sleep also plays a big role in our kid’s immunity and overall health.
Essential oils like Lavender and Bergamot are rich in linalool and linalyl acetate, compounds that have well-known relaxing properties. These oils can be diffused aromatically in the bedroom. Cedarwood and Vetiver are also very powerful oils that have sedative properties and also calm the racing mind.
I hope that you now feel empowered to makeover your medicine cabinet for healthier options for your kids and the whole family!
