Mom must have

must-have-oil

I’m so excited to say that I am finally back to blogging. For those of you that don’t know, I recently had a baby boy. He is so beautiful. I love spending all of my time with him. Adjusting to two kids is going well, and I finally feel like I can squeeze blogging into my schedule. Today I want to share with you my “mom must have oil”.

Everyday I have been using Abundance and Harmony and they are both working wonders for me! I’ll write about that later. The most important oil in my collection right now is digize. In my opinion, every mom should have this oil. Scratch that, EVERYONE should have this oil.

Looking back I don’t know how I survived without Digize after the birth of my first child. Luckily, I found Young Living a few months after she was born. During those first few months I gotta say, things were tough. My life was forever changed after I received my premium starter kit. Words cannot tell you how amazing essential oils are so today I have made a video of Digize in action!

Please note that I am using coconut oil to dilute digize before putting it on my son. Please learn how to dilute essential oils properly before applying them to your baby or children. The correct ratio for babies age nb-6mos is .25 drop:4 tsp

Also, please remember I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils. Using other brands may cause opposite effects or undesired side effects.
