Lena

Newborn Baby Tips

By Dana Ripepe

 

We are so excited to introduce our new addition to our family, Baby Lena.  Lena is only 4 days old and she is already an “oily baby.”  We use only Young Living’s Essential Oils and products for our baby and family.

The first product I used on Baby Lena was Frankincense Essential Oil when she was born.  I applied a drop of Frankincense to her feet to help bring oxygen to her body, just like Baby Jesus was anointed with Frankincense.  I also used this oil to help heal her belly button.  I applied 1 drop of Frankincense directly in the belly button once or twice a day.

While we were in the hospital, I noticed how Lena’s skin was very dry and chapped all over her body.  As soon as we got home, I started applying Young Living’s Animal Scents Ointment to her skin 3 times on the first day.  The next morning her skin wasn’t dry or chapped anymore.  I love seeing fast results with these products.

To learn more about the Young Living products I used for my newborn, view the video below.

Labor Process

Labor Process Using Young Living Essential Oils

By Dana Ripepe

 

On Saturday, March 15th, 2014 I started to feel cramping in my abdomen and back pain.  I was 38 weeks pregnant with my daughter.  My due date wasn’t for another 2 weeks.  The cramping came back once each hour and then it increased to every half an hour.  That was when I realized that I was starting the labor process to give birth to my daughter.  I applied Valor to my low back throughout the day to ease my back discomfort.  At 9:45 pm, my water broke and I left my house to head to the hospital.  I grabbed my bag for the hospital and of course I had my carrying case with a group of Young Living Essential Oils to use.  Some of the oils I had with me were: Frankincense, Valor, Peace and Calming, Thieves, and the Labor Blend roll-on.

Earlier in the day, my sister and I found a recipe to encourage labor from the book titled Gentle Babies: Essential Oils and Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Childbirth, Infants and Young Children by Debra Raybern.  I used the following Labor Blend: 1/2 ounce of V-6 vegetable oil, 4 drops of Helichrysum, 4 drops of Fennel, 2 drops of Peppermint, and 6 drops of Ylang Ylang.  I mixed this blend together in a glass roll-on bottle.

When I got to the hospital, I was already 7 centimeters dilated.  I chose not to have an epidural.  Instead, I put Peace and Calming on my wrists, neck, and breathed it out of the bottle to help me relax my nerves and stay focused.  Then I had my husband apply the Labor Blend roll-on onto the inside of my ankles to help speed up the process.  Within 15 minutes, I was fully dilated and ready to have the baby.  Within 10 minutes she was born.

My daughter, Lena Giovanna, was born at 12:02 am on Sunday, March 16th.  Using Young Living Essential Oils helped me get through the labor process and I was able to have a natural child birth for my baby.
