It’s tough for parents to see their child suffering with a cold—the coughing, sniffling, and all of the uncharacteristic lack of energy. It takes time and rest for the body to fight a cold virus but in the meantime, you can help promote a sense of well-being for you and your child while you’re fighting the bug. One of our favorite ways to soothe and restore is using the incredible aromatherapy power of essential oils, specifically eucalyptus.
What Is Eucalyptus Oil?
Eucalyptus oil is distilled from dried eucalyptus tree leaves, which produces an oil with a distinctive scent.
To get the biggest aromatherapy benefit, it is important to work with essential oil blends that contain high levels of plant actives and are synthetic additive and pesticide free. All California Baby® blends are tested by a third party for purity and developed in consultation with an aromatherapist; we only use oils that are known for their safety and efficacy and use them at appropriate levels for babies and kids.
Eucalyptus Ease™ works to promote a sense of general well-being and to soothe mind and body with a blend of eucalyptus and Douglas fir.
The California Baby Eucalyptus Ease aromatherapy blend can be called upon anytime you feel your resistance slipping and you want to slow down to regain your healthy footing, it works to promote a sense of general well being and to soothe mind and body. Designed to be added to a warm bath, mixed with massage oil. All California Baby essential oils are tested by a third party and are guaranteed pesticide and synthetic additive free.
