Ok so I’ve truly become an ‘essential oil’ lover lol! But this oil is also a must have in my home! I think I would rather go without paper towels instead of not having this oil! Okay maybe that’s going a little too far. But seriously guys this oil is amazing!

My daughter had some major respiratory problems when she was a very young baby. It crushed my heart because I’m always looking for the ‘natural remedy’, but with breathing it’s a whole different ball game. She wheezed so badly, and the only thing that helped her was the breathing machine.

After doing some research I found that things like diet, environmental factors, and allergies were some of the causes. So naturally I worked at altering these conditions. Thankfully she grew it out. But then my little guy started experiencing some difficulties with breathing, mainly at night. So I went back into the ‘Research lab’ once again! And that’s when I discovered the power of Eucalyptus oil.

Eucalyptus oil is excellent for antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory issues. It is a decongestant, great for colds,  flus, sinuses, allergies, and air cleansing. Now besides all these wonderful benefits, it is also a great odor remover, spot remover, wound treatment, and it nourishes your hair.

This essential oil is a must have in my home! I usually sprinkle a couple of drops in our rooms, and also in a humidifier that’s conducive for using essential oils. Try using distilled water in your humidifier to get the best results as well. I even put a drop of two in the center of my son’s head before bed. It is relaxing, soothing, and phenomenal for aromatherapy!

Mommies we are always trying to find ways to do our best for our kids. And selecting natural and healthier options are great ideas. My son has been breathing a lot better throughout the night. Cutting out dairy, and incorporating lots of quality drinking water are some other ways to help with respiratory issues, asthma, and allergies.

But whether you sprinkle it, diffuse it, or use it around the home, you definitely want to grab a bottle of Eucalyptus oil:) I get mine at Whole Food, green markets, or any health food store.

Have you ever tried this oil? What are some of your favorite Essential oils?
