DOTERRA’S TOUCH LINE ARE PRE-MADE ROLLER BOTTLES THAT ARE PERFECT FOR TOPICAL USE. THESE ROLLER BOTTLES ARE DILUTED AND CAN BE USED SAFELY ON KIDS.
Keeping my children healthy and safe is a top priority, and I am so thankful I have my essential oils to use when I can. I am very thankful for modern medicine for emergencies but tend to use natural remedies most often.
When my oldest son was 1, he came down with RSV and pneumonia. He was hospitalized for 5 days and was put on antibiotics, and had several breathing treatments during his stay. I was extremely grateful for the doctors and medication.
However, it took us several years to reverse the side effects of the medicines he was given. The antibiotics killed the good bacteria in his gut and left him with a syndrome known as leaky gut. Basically, his gut liner had holes in it, and food leaked out into his bloodstream, hence the name “leaky gut.” This can cause food intolerances and digestive issues. The gut is the brain of the immune system and when it’s out of wack, so is your immune system.
Essential oils are very concentrated and very powerful! When using them with kids, it is best to make roller bottles so you can dilute the essential oils in a carrier oil, like fractionated coconut oil.
Typically, I make my own blends in roller bottles, but I wanted to tell you about doTERRA’s touch line. These are premade roller bottles that are great for topical use and safe for kids.
DOTERRA TOUCH ESSENTIAL OIL ROLLER BOTTLES FOR KIDS
Breathe is doTERRA’s respiratory blend. I use this one anytime my kids have coughs, congestion, or dealing with seasonal threats. Roll onto the chest, the bottom of feet, and down the spine to promote easy breathing, open up senses, and clear airways.
Digestzen is doterra’s digestive blend. I use this anytime we have tummy issues. It is wonderful in aiding digestion, soothing upset stomachs, and reducing uncomfortable gas and bloating. I rub this on their tummies anytime someone complains of their belly hurting or when we eat unhealthy food.
On Guard is doterra’s protective blend. This oil is great at supporting a healthy immune system and killing germs. We roll this one on anytime we are sick or exposed to lots of germs. I lather them up in on guard before church nursery or playdates. This one is good to put on the bottom of the feet, on the wrists, and down the spine. This is my most used oil, especially in the cold and flu season!
Known as the “King of Oils” due to its extensive health benefits. Frankincense can cover an array of ailments and it is good for just about everything. Use this on your child’s spine and feet to boost their immune system. Apply it to the skin to help heal and soothe any skin imperfection. Frankincense essential oil is also great for calming the nervous system and can be used to help your child focus and concentrate. Apply to the pulse points to help with brain function and stimulation.
Melaleuca is great for immune support and is known for its purifying and cleansing properties. I use melaleuca when anyone is complaining about ear pain or has lots of drainage. I rub it around the outside of the ear and on the bottom of their feet.
Lavender is a calming and relaxing oil. It is also soothing for the skin. I use this one on my kids before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. It is also good to put on skin imperfections. Before bed, roll lavender on the jawline and the bottom of feet. Apply to area of concern when using it for skin imperfections.
