First off, what a week! No matter who you voted for (and I sure hope you exercised your right to vote!), it sure was interesting to watch all the election results play out! Even more exciting though, one of my friends finally had her adorable baby boy and I can’t wait to meet him! Welcome to the world, Jack! On that note, I apologize for my post being late this week; I was enjoying the beautiful autumn weather on Sunday and watching the election coverage on Monday.
So, here we go! Last week we talked about using Lavender oil for various baby-related problems and this week we are talking about the ONLY other essential oil which is safe to use on babies, period. Roman Chamomile!
Babies, babies, everywhere! I’ve come to that point in life where many of my friends either have kids or are on the verge of having kids, which is great for me because I can get my baby fill and then give them back when they start to cry Aunties really are the best, aren’t they? Having said that, this is the beginning of a little mini-series all about babies and toddlers! Enjoy, mamas!
Before I even get started, I need to apologize for my lack of posts all summer. Partially, I was out enjoying the weather because I LIVE for hot weather. But I have to admit, I also wasn’t sure what to write about so instead of writing just for the sake of it, I thought I’d wait until I had true motivation again. I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer as much as I’ve enjoyed mine!
This week, I’m going to get a little bit personal and if you’re squirmy, I apologize! I think it’s very important to mention that anything I write in this blog post is not meant to bypass the advice of a certified doctor or naturopath, it is strictly my own experience.
Awhile back, I posted about the do’s and don’ts of using essential oils but since then, I’ve had quite a few friends asking about how to properly dilute them for use on your skin. It’s so exciting to see how quickly different natural health mediums such as aromatherapy are picking up, but at the same time as a certified aromatherapist, it’s worrisome that some companies have been misinforming the public about how to safely use essential oils. If you are purchasing essential oils which have not been diluted in a carrier oil (it will say on the label 3% dilution in jojoba oil for example), pay close attention to this post!
“Mermaid tears”: tiny pieces of plastic, 5mm wide at the most, that are plaguing our waterways in mass amounts. They’ve been given a lot of attention lately as organizations are calling on the government to ban these little microbeads from use in cosmetic products such as exfoliating scrubs and toothpastes.
