Ain’t no hood like motherhood! Am i right?! 2 nights ago we had what was probably the worst night of sleep since having kids. Wouldn’t it be glorious if babies were born with teeth? (Just thinking out loud ) My little man has the hardest time with teeth coming in, and it usually comes with little sleep and not feeling well.
But those essential oils - of course I’m going to talk about them oils - i just cannot imagine doing this mom thing (or ANYthing) without them. Before essential oils- i would have been planning our next day around a Doctor appointment, running to the pharmacy, and stressing about my baby not feeling well. But now that we are empowered and equipped because of this crazy awesome wellness journey, i was able to provide what his little body needs to feel better, rather than suppress his symptoms. And i love knowing that these oils are natural and don’t come with harmful side effects.
Our night was long, but we powered through thanks to:
Copiaba for his gums that were causing him discomfort, R.C. on his chest for respiratory support, Purification along the back of his ears to prevent any ear discomfort that sometimes come up with teething, and Lavender to help him rest (on me, because laying on mommy is way better than a crib ), and Thieves on the bottom of his feet to support his immune system. Anddddd let’s not forget Stress Away for Mama! I’m so grateful that he woke up the next day running around and back to himself! We had a looooong, much needed nap the next afternoon. (thanks Cedarwood + Frankincense ) Being a mama is tough stuff! We have SO much to think about and get done every day. These oils are a big part of our lives because they WORK and it’s one less thing this busy mama has to worry about!
