kiddie connection balm

I was stuck at Christmas in trying to think of a present for my bestie. Then I thought about what we talk about ALL the time- connection to our children. Having children who grow up knowing they are accepted, honoured and loved is so important to both of us. Sometimes in the business of life it’s hard to find those special moments to connect. So I thought I could create a precious ritual for her and her kiddies… a massage balm. I looked up all the oils that could foster this connection and what do you know, they combine to smell AMAZING! Emotionally this balm is all about community, love and trust which is perfect for a bedtime back rub!

I made a batch of this last week for my own family and I have loved using it. I think it is helping my son unwind and fall asleep quicker. I say think as we are doing a whole lot of other things to help my boy unwind and fall asleep so I am not sure which is the silver bullet! Both kiddies love this bedtime ritual and I must admit I love it too x

I used the doTERRA Soothing Salve recipe as a base and doubled the beeswax amount. This makes the balm a little more solid but is still super spreadable. Instead of using the oils listed in the Soothing Salve recipe, add the following:

  • 3 drops of Rose (if you have it. If not add another 3 drops to the amount of Geranium)
  • 7 drops of Geranium
  • 5 drops of Cedarwood
  • 2 drops of Cinnamon
  • 2 drops of Black Pepper
  • 3 drops of Roman Chamomile

 

You can get the jars here
