Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I'm still fairly new to oils as I've been using them and learning about them for about a year now. I use this testimonial website for EVERYTHING. My husband makes one peep and I'm off and searching for an oil before he goes to CVS and buys some over the counter junk.

So I was hesitant to use them on my baby (now 5 months) and did a lot of research before putting any on him. I bought the Gentle Babies : Essential Oils and Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Childbirth and Infant Care book on Amazon which helped a lot. Get it while you're pregnant, it's for you, too! Not just the baby.

I bought the ClaraDerm spray for my stitches after my son was born with the help of forceps and I swear I was relieved of pain in less than 2 weeks when they told me to expect pain for 6.

Based on some testimonials, I've helped my little son with some eczema on his leg and eyebrows. It completely cleared up by putting some Lavender chap stick on the areas after each bath.

He had some cradle cap/dandruff so, after what I read in a few testimonials, I added 1 drop of the Purification oil blend on his head. I rubbed it in and brushed his hair and it was gone. I did one more drop the next day just for fun but it never came back.

I put a drop of the Thieves oil blend on the bottom of his little feet whenever we have company or my husband or I feel a cold coming on. He had the sniffles (along with mom and dad) for about 2 days while our colds lasted almost a week.

He doesn't really cry but when he's a little FUSSY, and I know that he's dry, full and rested, I pick out an oil from my stash to put a drop on my finger and let him smell it. It has calmed him every single time!

I hope these helped you. Just remember, with babies especially, to read the recommended uses. Sometimes they're hot and need to be diluted. Most times you need just ONE DROP and a little coconut oil or something to mix it in.

I love how my husband has finally become a believer and I've been slowly tossing out all those yucky chemicals that we used to use so often.

I'm very thankful for Young Living Essential Oils.
