For a Fever
Peppermint! Peppermint Oil can bring down a fever within minutes. When Liam or Savannah run a temperature, we rub some diluted Peppermint Oil up and down their spine and feet. Another way if your kids swallow pills is to put two drops lemon and two drops peppermint in a capsule. Within minutes their fever will come down. No Motrin or Tylenol needed.
For An Upset Tummy/Constipation
DigestZen! This is a blend that is specific to doTERRA, and is fabulous for tummy issues. Upset stomach, constipation, diarrhea – if your child has a tummy ache, this is the good stuff. Rub a drop of DigestZen, along with a carrier oil like Coconut Oil or Olive oil for dilution, onto your child’s tummy. This one is our go to for Liam. It has been working very well on him for all his stomach issues.
For Scrapes, Cuts, and Burns and Bites
Peppermint again! Peppermint works great for those nasty headaches that kids get. It super easy just put a dab of carrier oil like Coconut Oil or Olive oil for dilution in your hand with a small drop of Peppermint oil. Rub on forehead and back of neck.
For A Sore Throat or Scratchy Throat
For Ear Infections
Basil! Believe it or not, Basil works naturally and effectively to treat ear infections! While you should never put oil directly into the ear canal, rubbing a little Basil around, behind, and on the flat part of the ear can dramatically turn your child’s ear infection around! No expensive doctor’s visit, no antibiotics! I have not tried it yet on my kids, but know quite a few families that say it works very well.
