Do your kids get ear infections or ear aches? Have YOU ever had them? I’m not discrediting how it is for kids, but it is so painful for adults too! I, all of a sudden started giving more sympathy to my kids when they got ear aches. Luckily for us, I can always catch and start to help treat ear infections when they first come by putting a little bit of Melaleuca on a cotton ball and putting it in the ear that hurts. Normally by the time my son wakes up in the morning, his ear is feeling so much better.
I have a great recipe for a roller bottle too, which I am in love with! Now the awesome thing is….I found these amazing labels that I use for my Rollerbottles that help remind you of the main ingredients in them, and because essential oils can be overwhelming when first starting out, they also remind you of good places to apply them! Amazing right?!
When I first started out using oils, I was told “less is more!”. You don’t have to use a whole bottle of your essential oil to create different recipes. Most recipes only take a few drops of each oil when you are creating them. Fractionated Coconut Oil is key to keep on hand! That is what I use for all of mine.
For this recipe you will use the following:
6 drops of Basil
6 drops of Lavender
6 drops of Melaleuca
Fill the rest of the 10ml bottle up with Fractionated Coconut Oil

They have even created cute names for them so that you remember EXACTLY what this blend is for!
I think I’ve mentioned this before, I LOVE ESSENTIAL OILS! If your child wakes up in the middle of the night with an ear ache, go right to your oils and grab the rollerbottle you’ve already made up! Super easy! Remember, you can start getting oils today! Let me know when you are ready.
