Hello YMS family!

It’s Jamie Sabat, founder of Distill + Express, a health and wellness community in DC, back to chat with you about essential oils and safety. I get so many questions from mamas about the dosage of essential oils and how to use them on their littles.

I’m here to share tips and tricks for all you natural mamas. When using essential oils on our little ones safety is of the utmost importance. There are certain oils we have in are arsenal to protect our children and boost their immunity and some we should use with caution.

During cold/flu season, I’m always super nervous about the kiddos getting sick. Here’s a great routine to keep them healthy and strong. For my 3-year old, I get him going with a healthy breakfast and vitamins before we head out the door. I sprinkle a PB Assist sachet in his water. It has a yummy melon flavor that he loves. It’s followed by a chewable a2z vitamin. He loves pancakes. Instead of using sugary syrup, I drizzle the IQ Mega on his short stack. Yummy!

Before we run out the door, I roll OnGuard on the bottoms of the feet and down the spine to protect against germs. For safety, always dilute in Fractionated Coconut Oil. Below is an illustration of instructions on how many drops to use according to their age. OnGuard is safe to diffuse.

At the end of the day, I start preparing for bed. Sleep and rest are key to staying healthy. I switch between diffusing Breathe in the kids’ rooms if they’re congested or Juniper Berry aka the “oil of the night” for relaxing and diminishing bad dreams.

If you’re interested in learning more about natural solutions for you and your family, message me on my FB page, Distill + Express.
