My Baby Oilist has her mouth on everything. She tastes toys, books, and alas, crumbs almost every day, and not to mention her own little digits that touch everything.
Good habits of cleaning and hygiene are the most important factors in keeping your babies and homes well.
But when my baby’s immune system need support, I turn to my trusty and favorite Baby Immune Supporting Essential Oil Blend.
I combined some of my favorite essential oils that are gentle, yet are still super powerful and effective. Balsam Fir, Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Orange work together to support excellent immune function.
As with all things you apply or give to your children, do your research and use your best judgment on what your child needs.
Here is the exact recipe that I use for my littlest Oilists – from babyhood to two years old. I use equal parts of this essential oil blend and a carrier oil on my one-year-old. I would dilute this more for a younger baby or less for an older toddler. Feel free to dilute this recipe more or less depending on the age of your child and your needs.
Favorite Infant Immune-Supporting Blend
25 drops Balsam Fir Essential Oil
15 drops Orange Essential Oil*
20 drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
70 drops V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex
I combine all these drops in an empty Lavender essential oil bottle with a roller ball top. This makes it easy and tidy to apply.
I roll this recipe on the feet, the chest and back several times a day when my Baby Oilist needs it.
I hope this blend blesses your babies as much as it has mine!
*With a supported, healthy immune system, Baby Oilist enjoyed some sunshine during this photo shoot. Be aware though that Orange essential oil, like all citrus oils, can cause photosensitivity, so avoid applying it to exposed skin before spending time out in the sun.
