I was introduced to Young Living essential oils ten years ago as a natural way to treat depression. I've written about this experience, as it changed my life in an amazing way. The short version of this story is that I'm happy, healthy, and free of depression, completely naturally. But this article is to offer my experience using Young Living essential oils with children. I am mother to 5 ½-year-old Sophie and 19-month-old Max, and I've found essential oils to be a beautiful way to bond with children, relieve their challenging symptoms, and strengthen their immune system. I couldn't imagine raising children without Young Living essential oils, because the quality of their essential oils is so exquisite, but also because the blends that Young Living creates are simply magnificent at relieving symptoms, and soothing overtired children. Here are some examples of how I've used Young Living oils on my children. We were traveling and my daughter spent a lot of time in the pool and subsequently developed an ear infection. I didn't want to fill the prescription we received at the emergency room, and luckily I traveled with R.C., a blend that contains eucalyptus radiata and peppermint. I started immediately to apply R.C. around my daughter's ear (never put essential oils in the ear canal, it can be extremely painful to do this) and down her neck over the Eustachian tube. I did this every hour or so for the entire day before we boarded the plane, and before long, my daughter stopped complaining and tugging at her ear. We again brought her to the emergency room and the doctor there was satisfied that her ear was okay to travel. We boarded our flight the next morning and arrived home two hours later with no problems aboard the plane. When I brought her to our pediatrician at home, the next day, he found her ear to be free of any infection. Usually we use R.C. for any coughs or colds that crop up around our house, and they always disappear within a few days. When especially bad viruses are going around school, I simply apply Thieves blend to the bottoms of my daughter's feet each morning before she leaves the house. Thieves contains a blend of essential oils that have been known for centuries as fighting infection and strengthening the immune system. In fact, the name "thieves" comes from the story of several thieves who were successfully robbing the dead during the Middle Ages in the midst of a plague, and the king who captured them demanded to know the secret blend that protected them from the disease. The other blend that we wouldn't be without during the winter months is Di-Gize, a blend that contains tarragon, peppermint, and other stomach soothing oils. Whenever a stomach virus is making the rounds, we simply apply a few drops of this amazing blend on our stomachs or place a few drops in a glass of water (many of the blends made by Young Living are certified as GRAS or


generally recognized as safe for consumption) by the FDA. This soothing, calming blend is a powerhouse for knocking out indigestion, heartburn, and even constipation. When my inlaws or anyone who suffers from arthritis visits, I always keep the PanAway blend close at hand. I'm no longer surprised at the reactions from people who use it and are taken aback at the powerful the pain relief they experience. I jealously guard it however, or instruct people how to order it themselves, as I love this blend for any muscle aches that comes from exercise or overwork and couldn't be without it. Young Living oils have become the "medicine chest" in our family. I am so thankful to have alternatives to over the counter medications and even though I wouldn't refuse antibiotics if we needed it, we've been able so far to avoid them because Young Living essential oils work so well. They empower me to soothe my children when they're sick, help them to relax when they are overtired, and connect with them when they are well. My children also recognize the smells of nature, which is unfortunately very rare today, as we live in such a synthetic environment. They are also learning how to take care of their symptoms using a time-tested, safe, and non-invasive modality.
