Top 5 Oils You Need if You Have Kids

There’s an oil for that!

Boy, I heard this a lot.

After a year of my oiling journey with a famous direct-selling brand, I had accumulated more than 80 oils because of all the marketing promos that hooked me in. Sadly, I didn’t know what to do with all those oils because truth is, you only need a little when doing your blends and your blends will go a loooong way.

So if you don’t want to fall into this trap like I did, I am giving you five essential oils that you can start with especially if you have kids at home. No need to break your bank account to hoard them all —

LAVENDER (Lavandula angustifolia)

My go-to oil for everything. Skin problems, muscle spasms, stress, anxiety, sleep disorder, burns, insect bites. Very nourishing for the skin. Energetically, this oil is very calming.

LEMON (Citrus limon)

Antibacterial and disinfects the air. Cooling. Immune system stimulant and defends the body against infection. Phototoxic so don’t use more than 4 drops in a 10mL blend when going out in the sun. Energetically, this oil is very uplifting.

FRANKINCENSE (Boswellia carterii)

Good for the skin. Can be used as decongestant, for muscle pain relief, and headaches. Energetically, this oil is emotionally grounding and reduces anxiety.

Note: There is an unbelievably remarkable difference in the price of frankincense. Recently, I came across a direct manufacturer from Somalialand (where frank is mostly sourced) and their price is $80 per 30mL bottle. I realized that anything more than that is just ripoff.

CEDARWOOD (Cedrus atlantica)

Cedarwood is calming, a good decongestant, calming for the nervous system, and antifungal. Many use Cedarwood for focus ro3llers for studying.

ORANGE (Citrus sinensis)

Very uplifting, thus an antidepressant. Analgesic and antibacterial. Many people find this oil helpful for constipation, cramps, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, and vomiting.

Side note: Citrus oils such as orange and lemon oxidize quickly so don’t purchase in big quantities unless you will be using them all the time. When they oxidize, they can be skin irritating.

Hope this helps! Compare prices if you must especially if you are a practical mom like me. To know more about oils regardless of the brand and to learn more about your options, hop on to Lana Lane and let’s discuss these wonderful products of Nature.
