Creepy Crawlies and why this Mumma hates them…..

Miss G was scratching at her head yesterday on the way back from Mother’s Day at Nannas, the poor love scratched so much her hair was a mass of knots and she had scratch marks on her neck.

Sure enough on closer inspection Mumma found one egg and one live adult, over the years I have spent hundreds of dollars on the commercial products (my girls all have long thick hair), today I tried something different.

10 drops Eucalyptus, 5 drops Lemon, 5 drops Lavender, 10 drops Melaleuca, 5 drops drops Geranium top up with Fractionated Coconut Oil. I used a spray bottle and applied to the scalp and roots. I then sprayed the rest of the hair and tied in a bun and left it for a few hours.

I am happy to say this blend has worked a treat, much better than the commercial products I have previously tried. After combing out the hair it was just a matter of shampooing and conditioning.

I am also cleaning the bedding, but that is a whole other post.

Winter Bomb

School holidays and the onset of cooler weather has also meant the onset  of the dreaded sniffles and Miss E has developed a lovely green nose. Luckily for me my delivery of oils just happened to be today and the girls left me alone for a few minutes to make up a roller blend.

I have used a 10ml roller for this one.

I have left the number of drops out of this one as it depends on the dilution rate required.

I added Oregano, Protective Blend, Lemon, Melaleuca and Frankincense and then topped up with Fractionated Coconut Oil. I will roll this on the girls feet, spine, base of throat and along their  ear bones 2-3 x daily for 2-3 days, then I will then make another roller up omitting the Oregano and adding Lavender to the mix.

I get my cute little labels from The Natural Oil Company, they have blank ones for  you to write  on to.
