5 things we do EVERY day to prevent any illness coming our way!

1. We get enough sleep.
My husband and I do our best to get at least 7 hours of sleep every night.
Here is my blog on how we get a good night's sleep.

2. Vitamin D Supplements and time outside (yes, even in the winter!) 
These are the supplements that we love!  Here are some great things to add to your diet!

3. Vitamin C Supplements and we try to eat and drink fruits and vegetables every day.  
These are the supplements that we love!  We make smoothies and add lemon to our water very often.  Here is a list of foods high in Vitamin C.

4. We use Thieves oil everywhere!
We use the entire line of products daily for cleaning and for our bodies.  I carry the Thieves spray with me and my kids use the mouthwash as a spray too.  We use it in our throats and mouths to keep from getting sick.  The toothpaste has helped my sensitive gums.  We diffuse and apply the oil too.

Go here to find the Thieves Starter bundle under other premium starter kits. Honestly, the Thieves starter bundle is an amazing deal.  Everything is highly concentrated and if diluted properly lasts a very long time!

Life 9 is one that we use.  The kids use MightyPro

Why I don't panic when we feel the start of an illness!

Why I don't panic when we feel the start of an illness!
Peace of mind comes from having all of the tools already at home.  When one of the family members starts to feel under the wellness line, we just use what we already have in the Doctor Mom arsenal!

This is how I avoid feelings of overwhelm:

1. Increase all of the things on my list of every day immune system help.  
See that blog here!

2. Stay away from sugar and dairy as soon as we feel a bit crummy.  
I give tea with honey instead.  And we like to have honey with cinnamon as well.  Cinnamon is an immune stimulator!

3. Start diffusing cleansing oils to purify the air or help with respiratory illnesses. 

These are a couple of great ones: Thieves, Purification, and RC.

4. Set up a spot for the sick person with all of the following:
  • own pillow and blanket
  • bandana and tissues
  • Thieves hand sanitizer
  • Thieves mouth spray
  • Purification roller bottle
  • Detox Tea with honey
5. I spray every few hours with Thieves cleaner and wipe down surfaces.

Help your kids fall asleep and stay asleep with this

There is nothing worse than after finally getting your children all tucked in and you sit down to have a little bit of alone time (or your head is in the freezer looking for your hidden stash of ice cream), then you hear a door open and feet coming down the hallway.  Since my daughter was an infant, she has always had a hard time falling asleep.  We've literally tried everything!  Now that she can read to herself, it's a game changer in our house, but she still relies on one item in her room---a nightlight!

When we brought Feather, the Owl home, my daughter finally felt like she had some control over her own bedtime routine.  She can choose the color of the night light or it can cycle through.  She can choose the noise she wants each night or no sound at all.  Finally, she loves to add her own essential oils to the diffuser portion of Feather, the Owl.  I only trust Young Living oils in my house especially because I have kids and a dog.  There is a specific line just for kids, babies and pets!  

The Seed to Seal commitment and the amount of care and attention that has gone into formulating the oils is why I will never use other essential oils! You should only look for therapeutic grade oils.  Some companies literally put synthetic chemicals into their bottles, which will only cause harm for your family.
