We’ve been doing battle with a horrendous cold this week and the only thing providing any relief for the baby has been rosemary oil, so we’ve been using that like there is no tomorrow so she can breathe well enough to sleep and now wake up with a croupy cough. In the spirit of this, I opted to look up recipes for thieves oil, and I found several. They all have the same oils in common though: Clove, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary. Since I didn’t have cinnamon bark, I’ve been adding some lavender instead and using equal parts of each. I’ve been diffusing it in the air and I added some to coconut oil to smooth on the baby’s chest. My house smells really spicy, but the baby seems much more comfortable while she tries to get rid of this cold.
