Teething pain

There is absolutely nothing worse than teething pain in babies.  I mean come on...seeing that sweet little bundle of joy crying because of the throbbing pain.  Sure you can load them up with Tylenol, but if there was an alternative, natural way to alleviate the pain for your little one, would you try it?  When my kids were babies, I would try EVERYTHING!!  Well, not everything...my husband's grandmother suggested dipping a breadstick in some whiskey.  Hmmm....I'm sure it would work, but I didn't want to take that route.  I wish I had known about essential oils when my kids were little.  It would have helped tremendously.

Okay, so you want to know how to help your little one?  Rubbing Thieves essential oil blend on your babies gum, will not only help alleviate the pain, but your little one will be able to sleep comfortably.  Make sure you heavily dilute Thieves with EVOO or coconut oil, 5:1....test it on yourself first because it contains some hot oils in there.  Your baby will thank you and will be smiling and giggling once again. :)

Thieves contains Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary.
Thieves is a staple in our house.  There are soooo many uses.  It was created based on the research about four thieves in France who covered themselves while covering themselves in some of the essential oils in Thieves when robbing plagued victims.  This blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities and it is highly effective in supporting the immune system.  Here are some uses for Theives:
  • Rub on the bottom of your feet to help fight germs
  • Place on drop on your thumb and press on the roof of your mouth  to help alleviate headaches
  • Use in diffuser to help kill airborne germs, bacteria, mold, etc.
  • Add one drop to honey for sore throats
  • Add a few drops in a capsule with carrier oil to help support immune system
  • Add 2 drops to a wet cloth to your clothes dryer
  • Add a drop to your toothpaste
I'm sure there are more uses, but these are the most common.  Make sure you always dilute with a carrier oil before applying to skin or taking internally.
Well, that about sums it up in a nutshell.  If  you have any questions or would like to know more about essential oils, leave a comment or send me an email: fernbourrie@gmail.com
