Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My very first experience with the oils was a last-ditch effort to keep my five-week-old baby from being admitted to the hospital. I will admit that I was skeptical. My five-weeker hadn't pooped in three weeks without me having to force it out of her.

She had tummy problems from the beginning and was now on soy formula. Unfortunately, constipation is a side effect of the soy formula, which also caused her to scream out in pain.

I first tried Peppermint on her feet, mixed with coconut oil. Then (only after knowing it didn't bother her sensitive little skin) I put Peppermint on her lower back and eventually her tummy. Things were better. I was still having to force the poop out, but it wasn't as hard.

With the help of a couple of my oily friends, we managed to get a mixture of Orange, Rosemary, Lemon, Peppermint, DiGize, Copaiba, and Tangerine, which I applied generously in a clockwise motion over her abdomen twice a day. While doing this, I prayed.

Within three days she pooped on her own!! And boy, were we excited! I have continued this routine, and everything is moving well. I did get complacent and stopped for a couple days. It was obvious when I did.

I do have to say that most recommendations were not to use oils on a baby until they are at least six months old. We took it very slowly and watched her very carefully.
