Who doesn't like a loud laugh on a Monday morning. I have this great story to share with you. It will make you laugh so hard, you will wish you knew this little boy I'm about to introduce.
You see when I get stories from my friends about how they are using essential oils. This story I am about to share had me laughing so hard. Considering it's source, their is no doubt that anyone could have expected anything less.
I don't have children so I often borrow them from friends. Reef Esser is one of those kids I would borrow. Being around Reef isn't like being around any kid. Since he was a baby in diapers, anything Reef did or say was comical. It's been a few years since then and the humor keeps coming.
Just this week there appeared a red hot mark on reefs leg. It wasn't clear if it were a spider bite or some kind of rash. After much debate on if he should be take to the doctors it was decided to use some essential oils on it to alleviate discomfort. I'm am an Alternative and Natural Medicine Specialist. I have a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine and a BA in Health Science from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. When I here stories like these, the first thing I do is rattle off remedies like some crazy oil lady. If only you knew what I know, you would be like, 'Doctor? I'm my families DOCTOR' Thank you very much rolling your eyes. Because if you are a mom, you really are a Doctor. Really you are.
I checked in with Reefs mom a day later on the rash/spider bite and the injury was reported to be getting better. To my surprise there was another story and it involved oregano oil.
For all moms please note that, when using Oregano, Cassia, Cinnamon and Thyme essential oils, they are very hot hot oils. You MUST add either coconut oil or olive oil or any kind of carrier during application. Or your kid might not ever let you come near them again if you got that oil out. Be extremely aware. If any of these hot oils get on the skin grab your coconut oil fast and you will get immediate relief. It's even better when you use a roll on to apply the oregano oil with coconut oil in it. I recommend do terra's coconut oil because it does not clump together in cold temperatures. Reef is doing well and back to being the hilarious kid he will always be.
Food Grade Essential oils are perfectly safe for kids. If you are in doubt always dilute. Oregano oils a powerful antioxidant, to maintain a healthy immune system, supports healthy digestion and used as a powerful cleansing and purifying agent. Especially when one drop is taken daily in a shot glass of water. Having shared that, use your oils wisely and they will take care of you and your family.
