The dreaded stomach bug…what my family does instead of OTC meds.

Standard

It hits like a ton of bricks…out of no where!  Running to the bathroom, skin sweaty, pulse racing…. the dreaded stomach bug. In the past 24 hours, myself (at 6 months pregnant), the hubs and our 5 year old Monkey have all been hit!

At first sign I immediately began diffusing Thieves in my cool water diffuser. One of the benefits of Thieves, amongst literally hundreds, is its cleansing antiseptic abilities.

Thieves is not only diffused, but also is applied topically to the bottoms of the feet. This is a sure fire way to enter the body at rapid speed.

Another weapon in my oily medicine bag is peppermint.

Peppermint is known for its soothing ability for abdominal discomfort associated with bugs, travel sickness, or over indulgence at dinner. Simply massage a couple of drops on the abdomen periodically until feeling subsides. When applying to my kiddos, I dilute with some drops of a carrier oil such as coconut or almond oil.

What I love about switching over to essential oils is that I know what I am putting on mine and my families bodies and in our system. I can pronounce the ingredients and don’t have to question sketchy side effects.

 

DISCLAIMER: I am just a normal girl and not a doctor. I just share what works for me and my family. Please look under the YOUNG LIVING ROCKS tab for order information.
