I must confess: I am a super lucky mama! There are a lot of reasons, but one thing I’m really happy about: none of my kids have ever taken an antibiotic. Now – let me be clear – had they ever needed one I most certainly would have gotten one for them. We’ve just been lucky enough to have access to natural remedies and they have been very effective for us in staying healthy.
Spending most of the year in climates where swimming is a daily part of their lives, water in the ear happens.
Next time your little one comes down with an ear discomfort, try these amazing oils. ALWAYS dilute and never pour directly in the ear.
Basil and lavender are effective at helping with occasional soreness and Frankincense is effective supporting the immune system and promoting a healthy inflammatory response.
Choosing an Essential Oil Company to Trust with Your Health is a Big Decision
I recommend Rocky Mountain Oils because I honestly believe they are the best oils for the money. They have strong ethics about oil production and grow their oils in their native environment. All of their oils are either organically certified, organically grown or wild crafted with no adulterating. (Most oils you buy at the local health food store are adulterated with propylene glycol or a similar substances. )
I love that they are NOT an MLM, so there are no required orders or membership fees. They offer free shipping, so it makes sense to order even if you just need one bottle!
