Ever since A was born, fevers make me nervous (well everything makes me nervous when it comes to her!). They can come out of nowhere and that’s typically how A‘s usually start. She doesn’t take medicine very well for us. It’s always a two person job and I end up being covered! What can we possibly do to help her fever when we can’t get any medicine in her body???
Young Livings Lavender essential oil.
Majority of the time, this will be the only thing I will use and typically don’t have to give her medicine. Depending on how high her fever is. If it skyrockets to at least 103 out of the blue, I still try to get as much medicine as I can into her body. When I do have to use medicine I try to stick with Motrin. I unexpectedly learned that Tylenol for infants has Sucralose in it. I was shocked and would’ve never thought to check her medicine for that. I try to avoid it as much as I can.
At the onset of a fever, I put a drop of Young Livings Lavender oil on one of her feet and then rub both feet together. Sometimes I will take a compress with not hot or cold, somewhere in the middle and hold it to her feet. The first time I ever tried it, I think it helped get the oil into her body faster.
Even if she only has a 99.9 fever I will put a drop on her feet. Lavender can help with teething and overall is relaxing for babies. On my never ending (or shrinking) to do list, I plan to pack a little first aid kit for our diaper bag and include this oil so whomever is watching her or if we are out I can use it if need be.
Young Living are the only kind of essential oils I will ever use on myself and my children. I do not recommend trying this with any other brand, especially if you haven’t researched them or have heard that their Lavender has helped in this way.
