Adult Bedtime

One of the hardest parts about using oils, has actually been remembering that I can use them for Ethan and I as well. This doesn’t mean I forget and use OTC medication, I just suck it up and wait for what ever is wrong with me to end or stop. I’m sure you’ve noticed I am always using the oils on the baby, so why not myself? Well, it’s quite simple really. We are SO programmed into thinking and using “adult” and “baby” products, that more often than not, I honestly forget that oils can be used for the whole family; not just her, and not just us. DUH.

I’ve been working to try and be more intentional about taking care of myself, and using the oils for myself. One of the ways I’ve been doing this is by integrating them at night. The baby has a whole night time oils routine; and now, so do Mommy and Daddy.

💜Serenity Bath Bar: whether I’m showering at night and preparing to {hopefully} sleep, img_5325.jpgor Ethan is preparing for a day of dealing with customers, our Serenity Bath Bar helps prepare us either way!

🙋🏻‍♀️DōTERRA Natural Deodorant: one of us is hyper sensitive to most deodorants, the other is breastfeeding- this deodorant wins every time! I apply every night before bed.

🏋🏻‍♂️Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex and Rub: Ethan takes at least 2 of these a day to help img_5321support his joints and muscles from lifting every morning, and the strain & stress of standing on a concrete floor all day. I use the rub nightly-Mom muscles are a real thing! 💪🏼

💁🏻‍♀️Miracle Whip: this mix of coconut oil, Lavender, Melaleuca, and Frankincense gets applied from my face to my toes. It moisturizes, heals, cleanses, and calms everything from acne, to dry skin, to bug bites.

👄OnGuard Tooth Paste and Beadlets: I’m a stickler for mint tooth paste, and was pleasantly img_5322excited when I discovered OG does indeed have peppermint and leaves me feeling better than minty fresh before bed! We each take an OnGuard beadlet before bed to help support our immunity. With Ethan working with the public, this is a no brainer!

⭐️ Rollers- I have roller bottle blends for everything from immunity boosting, respiratory support, hormone balancing, indigestion/tummy support, and relaxing. Depending on our needs these rollers are applied to our feet, down our spines, over our chest, on our stomach area…you get the drift.

😴Sleep Blends: wonky schedules for both of us can make bedtime a struggle. I have a few blends I use to help ease us into dream land:img_5323.jpg

1. 4 drops Lavender, 3 drops Cedarwood, 3 drops Juniper Berry

2. 3 drops Serenity, 2 Lavender, 2 Lemon

3. 3 Bergamot, 3 Clary Sage, 3 Lavender, 2 Juniper Berry

👨‍👩‍👧 Oils and dōterra products being safe for the whole family is one of the biggest ways that they’re cost effective. Add in that every oil is multipurpose and you can’t go wrong. The lavender in the miracle whip, is the same lavender I diffuse to help us sleep, that I put on our dryer balls, and that I used to bake cupcakes with. What other product is so multi-functional!?img_5328.jpg
