Boost Your Baby’s Immune System with Essential Oils

Lynn’s Essential Oil Story

What makes one essential oil different from another? It is their focus on quality and purity. I remember wanting to try essential oils a couple of years before being introduced to pure EOs, but temporarily abandoned the idea after the following experience:

In 2010, I walked into a popular health and vitamin store with the intention of buying some essential oils for reducing stress and pulled a lavender oil off the shelf. The front label read “100% pure lavender”. However, when I turned it around to read the back, the label stated a warning that this oil was harmful if ingested or used on the skin. I had thought to use it aromatically, but the idea of breathing into my lungs something that was harmful to my body did not appeal to me, so I put it back and left.

Fast forward to January 2013. I was visiting Utah when I was introduced to certified pure essential oils. I got a few samples and a quick rundown on how great the oils were and how they could be used. I was Intrigued, but had some natural skepticism.

While in Utah, I was staying with a friend. A couple of days or so after receiving my sample EOs, my friends daughter and son-in-law popped by the house with their baby boy. They had just been to the doctor about respiratory and sinus issues their newborn was experiencing. Poor thing was glassy eyed and completely stuffed! The doctor didn’t want to give the little guy any medication, but he did say to keep an eye on him and to bring him back if it got worse.

The mom was pretty frustrated with the situation. I told her that I learned that pure therapeutic peppermint oil can support respiratory health and showed her the protocol for babies in a great resource book I had. After researching oil safety and babies, we were ready to try it out.*

We diluted a little peppermint oil in some neutral carrier oil, rubbed it on the baby’s feet, and laid him down on a blanket in the living room. I know, many of you are thinking – why feet? Besides being less sensitive than other areas, the feet have larger pores that are able to absorb these volatile oils in a faster (and with peppermint oil and babies, safer) manner.

After about five minutes we went to check on the baby. Well, what we found when we entered the living room was a pleasant surprise to all of us. Right there, in the middle of the floor, was a happily cooing baby, all bright-eyed and bushy tailed!

*Be responsible. Make sure to use 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. Read the labels, do your research, and read about oil safety before using essential oils. If you are pregnant, nursing, on medications, or have health issues, talk to your doctor.

I Never Thought This Could Work

Jon’s Essential Oil Story

I have been very allergic to pollen my whole life. In fact, from April through July every year since I was four years old I had to choose. I either had to suffer through it or treat it with conventional methods that often left me lethargic and in a brain fog. Since I couldn’t stand suffering through it, I basically went around like a zombie for four months out of the year. But today, summer means fun in the sun and the great outdoors. You can even find me mowing the grass with sniffle-free enthusiasm! I owe it all to my sweet wife, and believe it or not, the power of plants.

A few years back, my wife Lynn was introduced to pure essential oils derived from plants. She absolutely loved them and tried to get me try them. Well, the thought of walking around smelling like lavender didn’t exactly appeal to my masculine side. Besides, if I hadn’t heard about the power of essential oils (and at 40-something, I thought I had heard it all), then it was likely not worth my attention. Plus, plants and I were not exactly on friendly terms, so I may not have had the best attitude.

Of course, what I didn’t know at the time was that essential oils are a plant’s natural immune system, the chemistry that protects the plants from disease. What does that have to do with people? People and plants have compatible chemistry and what helps them, can potentially help us. I am living proof! But back to my story…

They say that “pride goeth before a fall”. I certainly found that to be true on a trip to Utah in March of 2012 when I awoke feeling like a truck had hit me. I suddenly realized that spring came much earlier in the high deserts of Utah than in cooler northern climate of Norway where we were living. And I felt the full force of the pollen explosion the morning of a very important meeting.

I felt awful and looked even worse. I panicked as I thought – I can’t go to my meeting in this condition! Luckily, Lynn was with me. She convinced me to use her essential oils instead of taking of making a mad dash to Walgreen’s. I added two drops each of lavender, lemon, and peppermint to a shot glass of water, swished it around my mouth for 30 seconds and swallowed. Whew! It certainly had a kick and boy did I feel better fast!

This changed my world! Since that day, I have used essential oils during pollen season and it has made all the difference. No longer in a lethargic brain fog, I not only have the energy to play with my kids, I can play with them in the grass, something unthinkable a few years back.

There are millions of stories of how pure, therapeutic grade essential oils have made a difference in the health and wellbeing of others. If you want to know more, join our free webinar on Essential Oils.
