|All this is coming soon to my store!|
The last time we were home during the same weekend as my sister, which has been such a long while I can't even remember when it was, my year-old nephew threw an incredible fit. He's usually pretty "chill" as my sister says, but all of a sudden he just lost it. He started howling and screaming and lashing out with his arms and throwing himself onto the floor and writhing around. We checked his diaper and looked him all over to see what was wrong but couldn't find anything. After about a half hour of this, with no sign of abatement, I was pretty concerned. I decided to see if my oils could help. I always travel with them of course! I mixed up a soothing massage oil and, since we already had him stripped down to a diaper, gave him a massage. The result was AH-mazing! My sister said she wished we had a video of it working and even my mom said she's never seen anything like it and she's hard to impress. I used Young Living lavender, Young Living Stress Away, and Young Living Release, but you could substitute YL Peace and Calming or Peace and Calming II for the Release or even YL SleepyIze from the KidScents collection. As always, to find out how to purchase these oils at wholesale prices by becoming a Young Living Member, please contact me or follow the link. Right now Young Living is having a SALE on premium starter kits, which never happens, so make sure you check it out before mid-August to get that deal!
Scream-Stop Baby Soothing Massage Oil
Mix 4 drops each Lavender, Stress Away, and Release (or substitute oils mentioned above) in 1/4 cup of a carrier oil such as olive oil. Massage on baby as shown below. I am demonstrating on my 6-year-old since I no longer have a baby (sigh).
Once you have reached the extremity (hand or foot), repeat the massage process by grasping the hand or foot at the wrist or heel and pulling downward toward the fingers or toes just as you did with the arm or leg. Repeat this several times.
