FAQ: What are you favorite essential oils to use for Hayes?! ANSWERED.

I have mentioned a few times now that we LOVE essential oils and that I diffuse them and use them on Hayes every single day! A lot of you have been wanting more details on the oils we use and how we use them,
so that’s what todays post is all about!
{link for starter kit is at the bottom of this post!}

I’ve started to become more aware of the dangers of chemically filled products since Hayes was born.
These oils have been a lifesaver for our health AND my peace of mind. We use them for sleep, for occasional tummy aches, for soothing his skin, for calming him down, for boosting his immune system – ALL THE THINGS.
And I mean, just look at that little dude…he’s the happiest & healthiest baby because of it!
We diffuse them, apply them, and you can take them internally too. I can’t recommend this starter kit enough. There’s actually a KILLER sale going on until Friday, where you get a second diffuser for 40% off with the purchase of your starter kit.
The oils that come in the starter kit are MUSTS, I’ll never be without these – for Hayes and for myself!

Hayes will be 5 months old next week and he is teething like crazy,
the drool & the fussiness are on another level and nothing breaks my heart more than knowing he’s in pain.
I recently started using Copaiba and it is a total game changer!!
Here’s a quick summary of how I use the oils that come with the premium starter kit!!
(For Hayes)
Copaiba: Excellent for teething
Stress away: Helps calm nerves and fussiness
Lavender: Helps Hayes sleep better/more soundly – Also smells freaking AMAZING
Raven: For healthy breathing during seasonal changes (I’m pretty positive Hayes got my allergies, sorry dude!!)
DiGize: For happy tummies
Thieves: For a healthy immune system

(For me, all of the above, PLUS..)
For muscle soothing & relieving head tension
Peppermint: For first trimester queasiness & healthy digestions (I also LOVE diffusing this)
Citrus Fresh: For clean aromas
Lemon: For cleansing my body and taking off sticky residue (love diffusing this with thieves for a clean smelling house)

If you’re planning on getting a starter kit I also HIGHLY suggest their baby wipes..
We have been using them from the beginning and Hayes has NOT ONCE ever had a diaper rash.
Also, I totally use them as makeup remover wipes occasionally!
If you’re currently pregnant you MUST start drinking Ningxia red…
I drank it throughout my pregnancy and it made me feel so much better knowing all of that healthy goodness was going into my body and nourishing my growing baby every single day.

I’m pretty much obsessed with all of the YL seedlings products as well.
We use the wipes and the baby wash every single day!

We put Gentle Baby oil on Hayes’s tummy every night and y’all I JUST DISCOVERED that you can dilute it
with V-6 vegetable oil and massage it into your skin for a healthier complexion.

We use a ton of other oils BUT these are the main ones I use for Hayes, and I wanted to get this post up ASAP while this major deal was still going on so if y’all have ANY questions whatsoever leave a comment here OR leave me a comment on my most recent Instagram post. Can’t wait to chat with y’all!
