Sleep as if by Magic for the Colicky Baby
This combination is magic for fussy kids.
Last night we had a rough night. Neither the baby nor the toddler was falling asleep though they were both extremely tired and both were fussing and both were crying off and on. J and I were switching off who was holding baby Auburne and trying to calm her enough so that she could release some gas. We put Bri in the tub with some eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils (which have been helping her with her cold) and she calmed down but the baby still kept crying and I was quickly reaching the end of my rope. I have been using essential oils for over a year, but I still forget how helpful they can be in certain situations. I was struck with inspiration to put a drop of frankincense and a drop of lavender on the sole of each of baby Auburne’s feet. Within seconds, she was asleep. Aaaaaaaaaaaah relief! When Bri got out of the bath, I applied the same to her feet. She stopped fussing immediately and was sleeping within 20 minutes. I use Edens Garden
essential oils for external applications like this. Because they don’t have usage instructions and aren’t FDA approved with the ingredient list and such for internal use, I don’t use them that way and instead use Faerie’s Finest
when it’s for internal use. Lavender and frankincense are both so great for helping calm fussy kids, it’s amazing.
