My favorite safe pregnancy/breastfeeding essential oils.
These are all also considered safe to diffuse around babies 6+ months and dogs. Tea Tree, and Ylang Ylang are also considered safe for diffusion but should be used with a little more caution.
Currently, I am breastfeeding a 5 month old, chasing around a 3 year old and have a big golden lab fur baby named Buddy. So, essential oil safety is of the upmost importance within my household. I cross check all my oils with multiple reputable references to ensure they are safe for ALL my family members to be around.
I currently diffuse lavender and lemon regularly around my 5 month old but only for about 15-20 minutes at a time and only a couple drops of each.
I tried both oils alone before combining them to see how she reacted to each one and once I knew she was fine with those I started blending. In the next month I plan to continue introducing my baby to more oils and blends that are safe for her to breathe in and am excited to be on my Oil journey with my baby girls. Ella, being 3 years old is able to be around many more diffusion blends!
I will keep posting essential oil tips, education, and blends that are safe for the entire family! (Dogs included 🐶💖) * photo from when I was pregnant with my second daughter, Evie. The location was at a flower farm, and the willows were so dreamy!
Friday got me like 🤤 I love details and organization but on days like today, with a pending move, I have neither going in my favor... My morning bible study reminded me I don't need to know all the details - God has this all worked out. What I need to do is praise Him, be thankful and put one step in front of the other. When my attitude changed, so did my morning ♡ "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your path straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6

Os Caminhos de Mandela 2
Imagina como foi difícil para Mandela pedir autorização para ter uma horta estando em um presídio?
As autoridades do presídio não entendiam aquele simples pedido e suspeitava daquele mais inocente sonho de Mandela.
Ele explicou que queria suplementar sua dieta e de seus companheiros com alimentos frascos e preparou uma campanha para tentar convencer as autoridades.
Cartas iam e vinham para diversos órgãos, advogados foram consultados.
Finalmente no sujo pátio Mandela recebeu autorização para plantar uma estreita e pequena horta.
O solo era seco e cheio de pedregulhos.
A horta tinha aprox 10x1 de largura e ficava posicionada do lado oposto a celas individuais.
Os guardas ficavam a observar ele saber a remexer a terra.
A princípio ele fazia isso com as mãos.
Mas logo depois conseguiu uma pequena pá e um ancinho.
Pediu então a família e amigos que enviassem sementes.

So what's up with the black powder? That my dear friends is activated charcoal! I've been using it for years to help whiten my teeth! It works amazingly well and it's available on Amazon for cheap! 💰
If you struggle with #perioraldermatitis , like me, it's suggested by dermatologists that fluoride can cause POD irritation. Yikes! In my journey to heal my skin condition I've fallen in love with the natural lifestyle. This toothepast has been a favorite for some time ♡ My kids love it too!

As an RN, I have seen patients suffering with a number of antibiotic resistant infections such as MRSA and complications attributed to the use of antibiotics such as C. Diff infections. I truly am so thankful for the discovery of antibiotics, but due to the overuse of them, many health issues have begun to develop. Whenever a patient has a MRSA or C. Diff infection they are placed in isolation and nurses have to put gowns, hats, and face masks on whenever we enter the patient’s room to provide care. Interestingly enough, C. Diff (Clostridium Difficile) infection is often a result of taking antibiotics. Once infected, patients are then treated with, you guessed it, more antibiotics! Say what?! 🤨
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a better way to treat C. Diff and antibiotic resistant infections in patients? Well, there may be! The scientific research on essential oil use for treatment of antibiotic resistance and harmful bacterial infections (even some types of cancer!) is being performed with some very intriguing results. I am very interested to see how the ongoing in vitro and possible in vivo studies go as the research progresses. •
Check out these articles for some interesting insight into the essential oil research realm!
Charcoal! Charcoal! Charcoal!
Why do we love activated charcoal so much for our skin?❤ Well, activated charcoal is used to trap and eliminate toxins from the body. It can be taken internally and externally for many health benefits.
With it's tiny pores it helps to draw out all toxins, bacteria and dirt from your pores on the surface of the skin.
Be careful! Activated charcoal can be harsh on the skin if used too excessively, even on oily skin.
Alternate between activated charcoal masks and moisturizing masks, with ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, aloe vera, so the skin stays at a healthy BALANCE! ☯ ✌

Put the lime in the diffuser blend and mix it all up 🎶 Lime is fun! Some may even call it “friendly” because it mixes well with others...the “miss congeniality” of citrus essential oils, if you will.
Lime essential oil is popular for diffusing around young children due to its believed ability to inspire creativity and its great immune supportive properties. This oil provides a fresh scent with lots of benefits. Some of the properties of Lime essential oil include immune support through its antiseptic/antibiotic properties, skin and hair health, mood boosting abilities and relief from anxiety. It is an air deodorizer and cleanser, antioxidant, decongestant, and it even is used to repel nasty cockroaches. •
* Put 2-5 drops on a cotton ball near your garbage cans if you have a roach issue and it should help naturally deter them. (Haven’t personally tried this hack but anything that keeps creepy crawlies away is heaven sent in my eyes and worth a shot)
