Babies

You’ve been using essential oil throughout your pregnancy and you naturally want to use them with your new baby! They can be fantastic for your whole family and even your newest edition.  One of my favorite parts of being at a birth is applying diluted Frankincense on a babe in the first few hours after birth.  Many cultures do this a religious practice.  I personally think it reduces stress and aids in the bonding experience between you and your sweet babe. Applying essential oils on your little one creates an emotional and physical bond through the loving expression of touch. Massage is one of the most enjoyable and gratifying ways to use essential oils with your baby. Studies have shown those babies where massage is part of a regular routine are more relaxed, have healthy digestive systems with less stress of colic and constipation as well as better sleep patterns.  Keep in mind, it’s important to use oils in a way that is safe for your baby’s sensitive skin. You will always want to dilute or use dōTERRA’s pre-diluted Touch rollers.
