Mothering with Essential Oils

Early this morning, my little man came into my room to tell me his legs were hurting again and asked if I had any oils for him. As much food as the child has been putting away every day, it’s no wonder he has normal growing pains!

I got out my Deep Relief and we went to the couch where I massaged the oils into his legs.

He smiled and we cuddled on the couch for a while. I told him the achiness was coming from all that fast growing he was doing. He hugged me and told me that he wasn’t growing because he was always going to be my baby. The charm he gets from his father.

After melting, I told him that no matter how much he grew he would always be my baby!

I’m so thankful that I have essential oils to bring relief and comfort to my little ones. I love that I can take care of them with natural products that are good for them and that won’t compromise their health in other ways. God’s gifts are good.

I love that I can grab my lavender to help soothe a number of “Mommy-I-need-yous.” When they have trouble settling down at bedtime, I can use Peace and Calming. I am able to give them a few drops of DiGize to support their digestion or for car queaziness. And I love diffusing Brain Power during our school time.

Praising God this morning for the little ones He has given me, precious souls I am entrusted with to raise for His glory. Thanking Him also for equipping me with His Holy Spirit and His Word to show me how to do it. And grateful also for the gift of essential oils—a gift that constantly reminds me of how God established our wellness right at Creation
