In the moment, there’s not much worse than waking to any family member feeling under the weather.

You scurry in the dark looking for something to use on them, can’t find what you need...
No time for that...

You can spend some time one day to gather oils and make up rollers that can all go in one place, so IF a need arises, you are ready to attack that mess!

Not only does this make it easier for us mamas and grammas, but it will also help us stay on top of things at the first signs, cause it’s right there ready to use!

Awhile back I taught a class called Doctor Mom, and I’m gonna share with you just a FEW of the things in our wellness chest! 

 (All roller recipes are for 10ml)

We have a roller made up of carrier oil only, this way we can dilute on the fly if we happened to run out of a roller and needed to use a stronger oil.

(You might want these in every bedroom, but I always have an extra dedicated to the wellness chest.)

For younger babies, feel free to cut this in half starting out.
Roll behind and all the way around the outer ear. When you feel the little indent behind the earlobe, massage the oil in a downward motion down the neck to help drainage.
Drop essential oils and carrier oil in palm of your hand (using roughly a 1:8 ratio of essential oils to carrier oil).

Rub down the spine and back of neck and around navel. You will more than likely need to use often while it lasts! You can use this every 30 minutes to an hour, or as needed.

So that was long...and i could share way more! You could add chest rubs, wellness bath salts....whatever meets your family’s needs!

But the idea is to take the things you know you’ve needed in the past, and make a good wellness chest. Build as you may have never needed an ear roller, but make it at first sign and then you have it!

Hope y’all have fun and feel super getting your wellness chest together!
