This was the scene in my house the other night. The stomach bug has been going around.
Thank goodness both my little ones had the bug for just 24 hours. Of course, I made sure to be proactive with my oils. I’m pretty positive that were it not for my oils, the illness would’ve lasted much longer. Here’s a protocol I use to help support both digestive and immune systems: .
Melaleuca & Oregano:
Dilute melaleuca with a carrier oil like the fractionated coconut oil you see in the picture and apply to the bottoms of the feet. Dilute oregano and layer it over the top of the melaleuca. Both oils have antiviral and antibacterial properties (amongst others).
I usually just give my kids a drop of On Guard orally. On Guard is a blend of oils formulated to support the immune system. The single oils included in the blend are wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus & rosemary. OG also has antiviral & antibacterial properties (plus more). .
I apply Digestzen topically with a carrier oil on my kids’ tummies and do a gentle colic massage (look it up on YouTube). Digestzen is another blend of single oils. It has ginger, peppermint, caraway, coriander, anise, tarragon & fennel in it. It is sooo amazing for any digestive upset/discomfort. .
Has this bug made it to your home? I really hope it hasn’t but I’ve heard of some other people falling ill lately. Please know that there are natural, effective solutions that can support your family through times like this! I’m here to help if you have any questions.
