    I use kids shampoo, bath wash and lotion for my baby. For her asthma I massage her back with oils blend: lavender, frankincense and geranium! Diffuse peace and calm or oola family in the living room!

  • Stephanie Patton

    We keep Gentle Baby and Brain power around for our Littles 🙂

  • Cindy Creel

    I use all of the above on myself, my husband, and the 7 grandbabies.

    I like to share the oils with my middle school students. We learn the names and the healing properties of the oils as we send a new oil around the class. It is amazing to see how this brief time of interaction can inspire and unite a whole class of very diverse personalities.

  • Laurie

    For a number of the oils above, you mention to add it your laundry….What is the best way to add oils to your laundry?

    • Young Living

      Hi Laurie, When adding essential oils to laundry, we recommend using 2-3 drops. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Holly Archer

    I diffuse 2 drops lavender every night in his room. Sometimes we add frankincense or stress away to change it up a bit! He has the YL Dino diffuser and he adores it!!! He sleeps so well every night since we started this!
