Supporting Restful Sleep in Kids

Recently I was asked about essential oils to help support sleep in Children. Without restful or enough sleep we do not function at our best. With Children, lack of sleep can manifest by an increase in tantrums, reduced concentration.  I have trouble winding down and getting to sleep and I am sure that some children are the same. There are a number of things we can do to help our bodies sleep well. Here are some things I do to help get a good nights sleep for my kids and myself

  1. Reducing screen time before bed. Artificial Blue light can be damaging to our natural circadian rhythm
  2. Go to bed at a similar time each night. Children(6-13) on average need 9-11hrs. It can be different for everyone so listen to sleep ques.
  3. Relax in a Magnesium bath. I add 1-2 tablespoons af Magnesium salts with 1-2 drops Lavender Essential Oil to my kids bath. The essentail oils can be mixed with a tsp of jojoba or coconut oil which will leave skin feeling moisturised. There are numerous benefits of Magnesium and sleep is just one of them. Magnesium is also best absorbed through the skin. Lavender Essential Oil has a calming scent and is also excellent for calming nervous tension and anxiety
  4. Foot massage. My kids love a foot massage and find it extremely relaxing. While sometimes it is a love hate relationship with giving the foot massage, I have extremely fond memories of one of friends mum’s doing this for me as a teenager and remembering how relaxing it was. Have a think about how long you are on your feet for each day? Young childrenen  may find that massage helps them to relax and encourages a restful sleep. I will often massage a drop of Lavender Essential oil with a tsp of vegetable oil into their feet at bed time. Read more about and how to massage your kids feet here Applying essential oils to the feet is an excellent option as our skin on the soles is the least sensitive. Always follow instructions on the bottle and test patch first.
  5. Diffusing Essential Oils. Using a ultrasonic diffuser with a few (2-3) drops of essential oil can encourage a restful sleep. I use a small number of drops as I find that is all you need in a bedroom. Lavender is extremely relaxing. Orange Essential oil encourages feelings of happiness. Peace and Calming  encourages deep relaxation and Gentle baby promotes a calm atmosphere for Mother and baby and in my experience everyone! Gentle baby would have one fo my all time favourites to create a calm environment.

For FAQ’s about dilution and safety of essential oils read here

To down load a chart by Robert Tisserand outlinging appropiate dilutions please click here

untitled

Topical dilution guidlines are as follows
0.5% for 2-6yrs old
1% for 6-12
2% 12 +
3% occasional use such as perfume
I don’t use concentrations higher than this as I don’t find it necessary at all.
For topical application for a 8yr old you could add 3 drops of Lavender to a 10ml roller bottle and top up with a carrier oil. All ready to roll on the feet for a night time massage!
Enjoy and have a  restful sleep

Nourishing Night time Face Serum

I used to buy a night cream but I have started making a nourishing night oil instead as it is really easy and you can customise it to suit your skin. My skin has improved and making my own is economical. I apply 4 drops to a clean face at night time before bed. Feel free to customise.

Some simple ingredients with lots of benefits

Jojoba oil- a golden liquid wax that mimics the skin’s natural oils, penetrating deep into the skin’s layers.

Rosehip Oil- absorbed quickly into the skin, it is pressed from seeds. Perfect for mature and sunburnt skin. Beneficial for healing scars

Lavender Essential oil; great for the skin. Used to treat disorders such as acne, wrinkles,psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions.

Frankincense Essential oil; promotes the regeneration of healthy cells, a powerful anti-aging oil.

Cedarwood essential Oil; has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, reduces skin irritations, promoting relaxation and balance.

When mixing your serum add the essential oils to the bottle first, lightly swirl to combine before adding the carrier oil. I use a 30ml glass bottle with a dropper in it(like these or try glass bottles direct in Australia) with 18 drops of essential oil topped with carrier oil. This is a 2% concentration which is commonly used for skin benefits.

Grocery Shopping- what to buy and where to get it

I have radically overhauled how I shop compared to a few years ago. One of the ‘big 2’ supermarkets in Australia used to get all of my business and now I nolonger put all my eggs in one basket! Having said that, there have been times when I simply did not have the time or energy to shop around.

After attending a speaking event by Libby Weaver in Melborne last year and reading her book “Exhausted to Energised” I really believe we need to get back to basics, teach our kids to cook, grow at least some veggies (even if it herbs) and eat simple food that does not come from a box.

After watching and reading about the study on a family eating organic produce in Sweden, I was amazed to see the traces of pesticides in their body diminish after only 2 weeks. I now place more of an emphasis of buying organic where I can.

Stocking a wholefoods pantry can be a challenge. Read this guide from Well Nourished to help  set yourself up.

I source a mix of things locally and online. As I live in Ballarat some of the recommendation are for places I can support locally.

Fruit and Veggies

I always try to buy fresh.

The Food Garden in Castlemaine Victoria deliver fruit and veggie boxes to Ballarat  on a Friday along with many other things. Their produce is always good quality and I love the convenience of it being delivered to my door. Graham is always a pleasure to deal with and their boxes ARE affordable. Just rememeber all fruit and veg is better than no fruit and veg but organic is better. They also sell pantry items that are carefully packaged in paper reducing the unnecessary plastic packaging.

Aussie Farmers direct also deliver organic fruit and veg.

Spring Creek Organics are at markets in Ballarat and melbourne. They also have a farm shop which works on an honesty system.

Organic Angels deliver to Ballarat on a Tuesday. I have not used them yet but their prices look good  and they have a range of other things you might find useful for your pantry too

Buninyong Blueberry farm have spray free blueberries for picking and farm gate sales every January. Fun day out for the family. Check out their website.

Meat

Brooklands free Range farm at Blampied have just delicious meat and bacon free of nitrates too. They are at many farmers markets. I have been known to drive out to their property and fill up my freezer. Jono and Nat are lovely

Millbrook Free Range I recently ordered half a pig! yep I filled my mum’s freezer and mine with different pork cuts that are absolutley delicious. Everyone in the family has been raving how delicious it is.

Salt Kitchen smalls good and Charcuterie. Beautiful ham and lots of other hand made goods that can be ourchased locally at Wilson’s Fruit and Veg, and other stores across victoria. Preservative free sausages are always a bif hit especially the wagyu and rosemary. They also do Christmas hams! Check out a stockist near you.

Simply Free Range offer home delivery. I have had a friend who uses them and recommends them.

Braelands Grass fed beef and lamb from Myrniong deliver to Ballarat

Pantry Goods

Feeding a family can be quite a challenge these days and a well stocked pantry makes the world of difference. There are many things I buy in bulk, like nuts, coconut, oats, rice, cacao, lentils, organic dried fruit.

The wholefood Collective* is a bulk wholefoods shopping site with flat rate postage Australia wide. I find their prices are great and delivery is quick.

The Source wholefoods I wish we had one of these locally!

Of the 2 Big supermarkets, I prefer woolworths that has a better selection of wholefoods.

However I absolutely LOVE our local IGA supermarkets in Ballarat. A great selection. Local sourdough bread from basilio, Free range pastured eggs from Millbrook, Inglenook dairy milk and so much more!

Bathroom

Now you might think it odd that I have added this category but I have learnt to consider everything I buy and try to continaully make the best choice when things run out.

Who Gives a Crap sell, toilet paper free made of recycled paper or sustainable bamboo. They also sell tissues and kitchen towel. They donate half their profits to overseas water aid which I also think is great. To receive $10 off you first order click here There are no synthetic fragrances on their products either which I think is important. Perfect for home or Office. Interesting talking point too!

Cleaning. I love Thieves Household cleaner. Plant based, biodegradeable, septic safe. If something smells chemically it usually is. One of the best things you can do for you and your family is the go low tox on your cleaning! I have written about it before and you can read about that here

Washing Dishes

For my dishwasher and washing up I currently use Ecostore.  A low tox option that works. Sometimes knowing what to buy is really hard. I recently listened to a podcast  by Alexx Stuart- Low Tox Life, who interviewed the founder of Ecostore products which I have found readily available in supermarkets in Ballarat and are available Australia wide.

Linen

Bhumi organic cotton store makes certified organic, fair trade sheets, towels, underwear, yoga and active wear. Click here for $20 off your first order

Sheets on the Line have stores in Brisbane, Melbourne and retail online. They often have some great sales and I have picked up some excellent quality organic King Single sheets sets for my kids here.

Buying in bulk will definitely save you money. It does require some foreward planning and organisation. Everyone time your purchase you vote with your dollar! Support the

Diffusing essential oils have a number of benefits. Fragrance your home without synthetic fragrances, unlike some candles there is no toxic fumes. Young Living Essential oils are pure plants extracts and their seed to seal guarantee is their committment to providing quality Essential oils. If you don’t have essential oils read my Essential Oil page for more information

An article recently published in the Good Weekend talks about the dangers of synthetic fragrance and it part of a book written by Kate Grenville- The case against fragrance. Read it here She speaks about the headaches she has suffered that after removing artificial frangrance have gone away. In my experience removing artifical fragrance has certainly been positive for my skin too. The Laundry aisle in the supermarket is a challenge for me to walk through down now!  Time to make some Laundry powder again.

Hope you like these combinations, let me know how you go

Yoga- Healthy mind, Healthy body

Yoga has many benefits for the body. Health benefits may include increased fitness and normalisation of blood pressure. It is a known antidote of stress. Reported lower levels of stress, increased health and wellbeing from regular practice occurs as the practice of concentrating on poses and breath acts as a form of meditation. This all sounds good to me!

Diffusing essential oils in Yoga can enhance the uplifting experience when practising yoga. Some yoga studios are using essential oil based sprays to wipe down their yoga mats

For me getting to a yoga studio is not always practical as a parent. I have started practicing yoga at home and there have been a numerous benefits. I can practice any time, my children join in and I use my diffuser to enhance the experience. I am able to work on my strength and flexibility at home and I ALWAYS feel better afterwards

There are a few things I have been using to make my home yoga experience work for me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 Yoga Studio App  I recently purchased this app my iPhone and I love it.  Follow one fo their classes or customise your own. Not particularly tech savvy I have worked out how to mirror the screen to my TV and I have my own private class with the convenience of being at home.

I was not keen on using a Yoga mat that was made of synthetics. Recently I purchased a Cork Leaf yoga mat.  The first Australian company making natural yoga mats using recycled cork backed by natural tree rubber. Naturally anti-microbial, smooth and grippy. No need for a cleaning spray, simply let dry and roll away. I love that it feels cool under your feet. They also plant a tree for every yoga mat purchased! More expensive than some others on the market, the fact that it was natural was a big winner for me and as I am not paying for classes I felt that this offset the price. Definitely worth it. However now everyone loves the mat I might have to purchase another.

Essential oils you might like to try to diffuse are Bergamot for its uplifting properties, Frankincense* for its strenghtening and centering, Lavender* for calming and peppermint* for clear breathing. There are so many more options and sometimes it is a personal preference. Blending a couple of drops of different oils works well too. I choose Young Living Essential oils and you can read more why here

In our busy lives, I hope you can take some time out for yourself and benefit your mind and body by practicing yoga.

Emotions and Essential Oils

I love that Essential Oils can have an effect on your emotions. This was something that I knew nothing about but was pleasantly suprised when I started using them. After implementing them in my cleaning and using my diffuser, I started to realise how good they can make you feel. 1 drop of Lavender can relax the body and mind! When you inhale an Essential oil they interact with your limbic system in your brain. The great thing about this is different Essential oils can be used for relaxing, stimulating, energising, grounding. As essential oils affect people differently you may not get the same response that someone else does. Use this as a guide to find the Essential Oils that work for you. This is definitley not a finite list but one to help you get started. To experience Essential oils you can inhale them directly from the bottle, apply topically with some carrier oil or my favourite is to put them in a diffuser

essential-oils-and-the-brain

Calming/Anxiety

Lavender*, Frankincense*, Bergamot, Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Vetiver, Rose

Energising

Lemon*, Orange, Rosemary, Peppermint*

Focus

Rosemary, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Basil, Black pepper, Lemon*, Peppermint*

Happiness

Frankincense*,Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon*, Orange, Sandalwood

Dffusing essential oils is in my opinion the best way to experience them. I love diffusing lavendar and cedarwood or Frankincense at night time before sleep. Anything citrus with some mint in the mornings to encourage everyone to get up and go when we are feeling a bit lethargic. Orange is a firm favourite of one of my boys when combined with Lavender.

When applying essential oils  topically, always dilute and less is always best. Please always follow a safety guideline when applying topically. As a general rule 2% for adults and 1% for children over 2

I would love to hear if you have had a positive experience with Essential Oils.

Favourite Food Blogs

The internet is great for inspiration in the kitchen. I am trying my best to feed our family a diet that is nourishing. I always tell my kids that you need to fuel it well so that it can perform and do the things you want it to do. Feeding it junk will make you feel like well, junk. It does not always happen but I make veggies a priority and try and teach the kids to listen to how they feel. If you feel sick after eating something, it’s not for you. Simple as that.

I have a few go to blogs for recipes that I thought I would share.

Well Nourished is a blog by Georgia  that makes cooking simple and has many variations to her recipes depending on intolerances or allergies. We love her banana bread and recipe ‘Meat free Monday’ (aka lentils) if you need dinner on the table in 20 mins. I have both her e-books and use them both. Fabulous

Thermobexta is full of wonderful recipes thay I make in my thermomix and has my go- to recipe for Tomato Ketchup. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter writes for the Sunday life Magazine. I love her granola recipe and always make a batch each week based on her web recipe. I like how her recipes are categorised into breakfast, lunch, dinner etc when you are looking for inspiration for a particular meal or want to try something a bit different

Skinny Mixers has such a great range of free recipes (thermomix based) for Asian, Mexican, Indian food. Perfect if you like to cook food with flavour! The satay is a must.

Quirky cooking   Love Jo’s range of recipes. We absolutely love her mayonaise and is definitely our go to for that

 

I am always keen to learn new recipes so if there is another blog that you would like to share, please share it!

Essential Oils that won’t break the bank

There are many affordable Essential Oils that are under $25! Some oils are expensive due to the amount of plant required to produce the oil. The more plant required the more expensive the oil but good news is that there are many oils that are less expensive that have many uses.When I had a look at the prices and which oils were under $AUD25 (wholesale) I found that I actually had quite a few of them. Each 5ml bottle has 75-80 drops and each 15ml bottle has 250. Often all is needed is 1-2 drops so each bottle will go a long way. 5ml where stated, otherwise 15ml bottles under $25

Cedarwood

Beautiful woodsy aroma. Blends with Lavendar for promoting a calm restful sleep. can be diffused for aromatherapy benefits including respiratory support. Cedarwood and Rosemary can help encourgae healthy hair growth

Lemon

One of the most versatile oils. Powerful detoxification agent. Diffused provides a refreshing uplifting scent. Added to marinades provides a pop of flavour. Use as an airfreshner in a spray bottle or on your benches as a cleaner making the most of it’s antibacterial properties

Rosemary

Crisp fragrance. Rosemary on your scalp will promote flake-free, glossy locks. It helps stimulate circulation to encocurage healthy hair growth. I use it in a hair spray! Combined with lemon in a diffuser can provide concentration support. Can be used in cooking where rosemary is required, used as a compress for muscle pain and stiffness, inhaled to help clear your sinuses, the list goes on. Not suitable if pregnant or epileptic or high blood pressure.

Orange

This oil imparts feeling of warmth and happiness. Can help eliminate toxins. We love to diffuse it. One if my boys loves a drop on a tissue inside his pillow case as he goes to sleep. of course it is another culinary oil and can be used in smoothies, marinades anything that needs an orange flavour. I love it in raw chocolate

Nutmeg (5ml)

Has a spicy aroma and is able to stimulate the mind while refreshing the air. A favourite in kitchens and in the diffuser. Blends beautifully with orange, rosemary, bergamot, tea tree to name a few. Not suitable if epileptic, caution if pregnant.

Lemongrass

This has to be one of my favourites, although I do have many. A fresh aroma that is revitalising. Helpful at repelling insects- always in my bug spray. Popular ingredient in asian dishes. Refreshing aroma in the diffuser with the added bonus or deterring insects.

Ginger (5ml)

Spicy taste when added to food. Is soothing for digestive discomfort and can help with cold and flu symtpoms. Diffuse or massage

Spearmint (5ml)

Milder than peppermint, it has a sweet fragrance ideal for use in cleaning and to diffuse to freshen the air. As a flavouring in cooking it has a sweet minty taste. Can be used to replace peppermint in many instances and is a safer choice for children. I love it in the diffuser with lemon in combination.

Lime

An irresistable scent that has the ability to eliminate moodiness. Great natural air freshener. Blended with grapefruit, lemon and orange creates an uplifting and positive mix to diffuse.

Aside from cedarwood all these oils can be used in cooking. For the month of November Young Living is offering a free cook book demonstrating how to use Young Living  oils in your kitchen to new members who purchase a premium starter kit. If you would like to read some more about essential oils and/or purchase a premium starter kit, read my Essential Oils page or send me an email at belindajforsyth@gmail.com and I will be in touch.

Thieves Household cleaner

thieves-household-cleaner

This product has to be one of the most versatile cleaners there is. I wanted to write about it to open your eyes to the number of uses there are from one bottle of Concentrate.

Firstly Thieves Household  Cleaner is made from Young Living’s Thieves Blend of Essential Oils- Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon bark, Clove, Lemon essential oils and plant and mineral based ingredients. It contains surfactants sodium methyl 2-sulfolaurate and disodium 2-sulfolaurate which are made from renewable sources,biodegradable and septic safe. I have looked up all the individual ingredients on the Environmental working group website and they have no warnings.Unlike other cleaners you can buy from the supermarket, all the ingredients are on the bottle!

It is safe for any member of my family to use which is great when the kids are helping out.

This really is one product with many uses

The concentrate can be used in the following ratios water/cleaner ratio. Check the back of your bottle.

NB 1 capful=10ml

  • 30/1 Most cleaning applications
  • 15/1 Heavy degreasing
  • 50/1 light Degreasing

I have a 450ml spray bottle and add one capful of cleaner and top up with water for my shower, sinks, toilets, benches. I spray and then wipe off with a damp microfibre cloth. Showers will benefit from leaving for 5-10 mins before wiping/rinsing off.

Carpet

Here is a before and after photo of a very quick spray and blot with a microfibre cloth on my carpet. I was so impressed at how well it came up. I used 1/2 cap in a 450ml spray bottle, sprayed carpet, left for a few minutes and rubbed with a damp microfibre cloth.

Dishwasher

To keep your dishwasher in great working order, add one capful to the dispenser and wash on empty on the hottest setting. It can also be used as a replacement for your dishwasher detergent.

Jewellery Cleaner

Avoid paying for your jeweller to clean your rings and do it yourself. Add one capful to 1/2 cup vodka and soak rings for 20 mins. Clean with a soft brush and rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Sparkling jewellery with minimum effort. Keep your cleaner labelled in a jar for next time.

Windows/ Glass

Add 1/2 cap to a 450ml spray bottle with 2-3 drops lemon essential oil. Top up with water Spray and wipe with a microfibre cloth for a streak free finish.

Bathrooms

Use a  450ml spray bottle with 1 capful , or 1 capful to 250ml for heavier application. Spray and leave  for 10 minutes before using a small brush to clean grout if required. wipe with a microfibre cloth. Rinse and dry

Stain remover

For a stain remover spray, in a spray bottle(450ml) half fill with vinegar, add 1 capful of Thieves Household cleaner, 10 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and then top up with water. Lightly shake before spraying clothing

Stubborn stains on ceramics or grout 

To eliminate stains from your bath, sink, toilet or ceramic cookware use 1/4 cup bi-carb soda mixed with enough cleaner (about 1 capful) to form a paste, scrub with a brush and rinse.

Car Wash

As this product is an excellent degreaser I recently used to to clean my car. Add a capful to a bucket of water. I scrubbed our rubber mats and cleaned the wheels with ease.

General cleaner

Using half a capful in a 450ml spray bottle you can clean kids toys, walls, tables, benches, yoga matt, gym equipment, cap upholstery, stainless steel, inside the fridge, the list is endless.

If you don’t have a Young Living account, you can purchase the cleaner as part of the Healthy Home Premium Starter kit for $289 here make sure you select Wholesale member.

Cost breakdown

With a wholesale membership, a 426ml bottle of Thieves cleaner($39.50)  will give you approximately  42 x 450ml bottles of cleaner! using approximately 10ml of concentrate per application. That is $0.92 per bottle/application. This bottle will last at least 6 months probably longer

A 1.8l($139.80) bottle will give you 180 x 450ml bottles of cleaner. That is $0.77 per bottle/application. This bottle I expect would last the average family at least a year and a half!

This product is a best seller, don’t let your supply run out

I would love to see schools,kindergartens, businesses use this product and reduce toxic chemicals. It can only be a win for everyone.
